Who we are
Gisborne Church of Christ is a vibrant church reaching the people of the Macedon Ranges and beyond. We are affiliated with the wider body known as Churches of Christ in Australia, which has been in Australia for over 150 years and has over 450 churches nation-wide.
Although the church building is located in New Gisborne, our people travel from Melton, Kyneton, Riddells Creek, Macedon, Sunbury, Woodend, Diggers Rest and beyond.
Our membership spans all ages and varied backgrounds. New Christians, Anglicans, Catholics, Salvos, Baptists... (and the list goes on!) have all found their way into our church family. We are particularly blessed to have many young families in the church and we consider it a privilege to worship along with our youngest members in the early part of our Sunday service, before they head out to Junior Church. We have a particular outreach in this area with our very successful Playgroup team running multiple sessions through the week.
Our Youth also play an active part in the life of our Church, with our Youth Group providing regular social and faith-based activities for our young people and our Disciple Dudes program providing Bible teaching and activities each Sunday morning.
Our outlook and our worship style are contemporary, positive and strongly bible-based.
The population around the church is growing rapidly as new housing estates are established and we’re particularly excited to welcome new families.
If you’re new to the area, visiting, or just passing through, why not drop in one Sunday morning or feel free to contact us about any of our activities, groups or ministries.
We find and recognise our purpose, individually as Christians, and corporately, as a Church, in Christ’s teachings and in particular in the Great Commandments (Matt. 22) and the Great Commission (Matt. 28).
We like to refer to our purpose as the "Five G's":
Our Sunday Service commences at 10.00am, at 31 Saunders Rd. New Gisborne.
Our Junior Church caters to children from two years and up:
In addition, a youth-oriented program - Disciple Dudes - is run for early to mid-teens.
