Questions you may have about our Church
Who's welcome at Boronia Community Church of Christ?
We welcome ALL people to our community, just as Jesus did. Our Mission statement that we live out is "Together with God, Extending Love to ALL" We believe that God loved the world so much that he gave his only son, Jesus, so whoever believes in Him will be saved (John 3:16) so we make room for all who are asking questions about faith, or who believe.
What to expect when I arrive?
Expect a warm welcome from our Hosts as you walk into the foyer, they will help you find your place and introduce you to some people. If you have children, our hosts will introduce you to one of our Hub Clubs leaders.
What to wear?
We are an informal community that believes church should be enjoyed and not endured, so just wear casual clothes.
What about my kids?
We run Hub Clubs (Sunday School) in both our Sunday Services, during our sermon time.
Chapel worship is a more formal worship space, during our Connection Worship, we encourage our Kids to worship freely with us, engaging with our community.
We understand that children don't like to sit for long periods of time, so we ensure we have songs they can move to, including at least one song designed for children to understand and learn from. If you're comfortable with your children moving around quietly during our worship time, we're happy for them to do so.
We break for coffee after our worship time, before entering our age engaging learning spaces. We run Hub Clubs (Sunday School) for children from walkers through to approx.14 year olds during this time. Hub Clubs run every week (including school holidays)
We have disability access through all of our buildings with wide door access to all our community spaces and a ramp for regular wheelchairs between levels or the option of entering through another external door if you're in a bigger chair.
Boronia and Bayswater Community Church of Christ is overseen by our member-elected Church Board.
Our current 2021/22 members are:
Kay King - Joint Chair
Josh Alexander - Deputy Chair
David Deith - Church Administrator

Which service would suit me?
Wednesday Night Formation
Wednesday night church service is designed to be a tutorial style worship service that suits young adults and those who appreciate interactive learning.
Through the winter months, we will be learning in Small Groups.
Weekly we worship together, share the Communion, and experience an interactive teaching time.
Sunday Morning Worship
Our Sunday service is a multi generational service, which reflects worship from the past and present, combining our former Chapel and Connections worship styles, centres around the Lord’s Table, and enjoys biblical teaching for life and faith.
Our children have an age specific learning time, which begins half way through the service, and our leaders are trained, child Safe and are required to hold a vaild Working with Children Check if over 18 years.
We break for Coffee half way through the service to allow our Children to head to their learning space and be settled, allowing their parents to find focus for our teaching time.
Seniors Praise Afternoon
In August 2022, we will be commencing a Seniors Praise afternoon once a month at our Bayswater Campus.
We acknowledge the challenges our more senior community find in worshiping in our multi generational communities, so we will be creating a space to compliment our Sunday Worship, while allowing our seniors to enjoy a more reverent worship space which includes Choruses and Hymns that bring meaning to their generations.
This will be followed by Tea and Coffee and a time of connecting with each other.
