About Wollongong

Wollongong, colloquially known as “The Gong”, is a seaside city. It lies between the Illawarra Escarpment and the Pacific Ocean in the Illawarra region of New South Wales, Australia. Wollongong had an estimated urban population of 299,203 at June 2017, making it the third-largest city in New South Wales after Sydney and Newcastle, and the tenth-largest city in Australia. Awaken Church Wollongong reflects every generation and has a multicultural community. The people are genuine and honest in their relationship with God. They desire to regularly encounter His power and continuously be equipped to reach their goal of impacting their world for God’s glory.

Awaken Kids

Awaken Kids consists of fun engaging weekly programs that invest in the lives of young people. It is a safe space where kids learn about Jesus through music, Bible teaching, craft and games! Our volunteers are passionate about helping to shape a generation of people who will rise up to make a difference in their world. Make sure your kids don’t miss out on the opportunity to part of our exciting programs.

Neos Youth

Neos is a collection of young people who are passionate about taking their relationships with God into their own hands. We are committed to stripping away the old and putting on our new selves to become renewed in Christ, every day.

Neos comes together on Friday nights during the school term. We can’t wait to see you there.

Awaken Nights

We are vibrant, energetic and a place where anyone is welcome and everyone is needed.
WE have a culture where we don’t simply know WHO we are but WHOSE we are. We love to SERVE, to WORSHIP and to GROW.  AND we cannot wait to have you joining with us. Some of the ways you can get involved are at our weekly 6pm services, our many social events and through our ever growing connect groups.
