Canberra is the capital city of Australia, with a population of 410,301. Canberra was selected as the location of the nation’s capital in 1908 as a compromise between rivals Sydney and Melbourne. The city has a high proportion of public servants. The heart of Awaken Church Canberra is to create a family that takes interest and care in each person that comes along. There is a passion to see God’s people develop into all He has called them to be and to see each member released beyond the Sunday services. Being at the seat of Government, it is crucial for this Church to display God’s power and preach an uncompromising biblical message of truth.
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 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.
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.
