Our Background

Our church was first established in 1922. We thank God for almost 100 years of continuous ministry and we seek to faithfully continue this work as an ongoing witness to the people of Cessnock and surrounding areas.

Our church is a member of the Fellowship of Congregational Churches (FCC). Being Congregational means that our church is independent – that is, wholly governed by the members. The FCC is a fellowship of like-minded churches and provides support such as a common Statement of Faith, pastor support and training. Membership of the FCC also provides a means for our church to work with others to achieve things we could not do on our own, such as to provide support for other churches and to plant new churches

Our Vision

In Love - Connect, Grow, Serve

We seek to Connect to our Lord, to each other and to the community around us. 

We seek to Grow as we learn from God’s word and apply it to our lives. 

We seek to Serve each other and our community as God enables.

We are a bible-based evangelical church located in Cessnock within the beautiful Hunter Valley. Our objective is to proclaim God’s word, the Bible, in God’s world with the purpose of:

  • People becoming disciples of Christ through repentance of their sin and walking in God’s grace; growing in the knowledge, love and submission to the Lordship of Christ in their lives through the Holy Spirit; and
  • Christ’s body, the church, being established and built up in worship, mission and service for the glory of the Lord.
