Connect Groups

Connecting with others is an integral part of the faith journey. Connect Groups are a great way to get to know and encourage one another as well as strengthen our faith in God

Connect Groups are run throughout the week on a fortnightly basis across all of our locations. There are groups catering for people in all life stages, including adults, young adults, families, men and women. These groups meet all over Melbourne. Don’t do life alone, join a Connect Group!

FaithKids

At FaithKids, you can be confident that your children are in a safe, engaging environment that connects them to God and each other. Every one of our amazing FaithKids Team hold a current Working with Children’s Check and have been screened and trained to ensure they are well equipped to care for the kids who attend the FaithKids program.

The program runs for all children from 18 months old up to grade 6. We have four spaces; our adorable Nursery, our incredible Early Childhood Room, our fantastic Primary area and our ‘Wiggle Room’ for those fantastic kids who may have special needs and need a space of their own where they can feel safe and continue to hear about God through sensory play.

Our FaithKids rooms have been custom built to appeal to all kids regardless of their learning style and are some of the best facilities in the nation. Feel free to ask for a tour, we’d love to see you and your children at FaithKids.

One Youth

One Youth is the High School Ministry of Faith Christian Church. It meets weekly during the school term on Friday Nights. At youth we like to have fun, chill and talk about our Faith in God. What we believe as christians hasn’t changed, but the way we present it to the next generation has. You don’t have to be somebody you’re not at One Youth, you’re welcome, whoever you are, just as you are.

On a Friday night you can expect to have one of the craziest nights you’ve ever had. We go all out at One Youth! If you’re in high school, come and hang out with us, the night starts at 7pm and finished at 9:30pm. Entry is normally free unless stated otherwise. Transport runs from all our locations to the Dandenong Campus except on neighbourhood nights, where programs run at our campus locations. For information about transport please call the church office on 1300 762 128

Faith Young Adults

Our Young Adults Ministry is a community of people aged 18-30ish, that exists to see young adults connected, discipled and engaged in their Kingdom call. Every fortnight young adults meet in connect groups across the south east of Melbourne to build friendships and encourage each other in life and faith.

Through Faith Uni there are also connect groups based on campuses and different events throughout the year aimed at building a community of like-minded Uni students and see our universities impacted with the Gospel.

Once a month we come together for our Young Adult Nights which typically consists of food, worship and a message. We are a friendly bunch and love to meet new people so please come along! For information on what’s coming up check us out on socials or give the office a call.

Missions placeholder Square.jpg

International Missions

BECAUSE LOVE GIVES.

“This is how we’ve come to understand and experience love: Christ sacrificed his life for us. This is why we ought to live sacrificially for our fellow believers, and not just be out for ourselves. If you see a brother or sister in need and have the means to do something about it but turn a cold shoulder and do nothing, what happens to God’s love? It disappears. And you made it disappear. My dear children, let’s not just talk about love; let’s practice real love.

As a church we currently support missionaries and projects in Cambodia, Central Asia, Georgia, Japan, Lesotho, Mozambique, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Uganda, Vietnam and more.

Together last financial year we donated almost $700,000 to local and international missions.
