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.

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. We do this so that we can not only fulfil His call on our lives but to also become vessels for His work and change the lives of those around us.

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