New? We’re glad you’re here!

We believe Jesus Christ is for everyone and for you,

so that means we’re a Church for everyone and for you.

But we understand visiting a new community for the first time can be daunting,

so we pray this page helps you plan your first visit.

About us

Sunday worship services

Every Sunday we hold worship services at 7:30am and 9:30am. The 7:30am service has a responsive spoken order with piano or organ; the 9:30am service has band music and is more relaxed. Each service is about 1 hour long. Families are welcome at either service, but a lot of our families like to attend the 9:30am service.


Children are welcome at all our worship services! Because we’re for everyone, we want children to worship with their families — children are invited to stay with their families through most of the service. We don’t mind if there’s some noise, in fact we think this is a sign of a healthy church! If you really need some quiet space with young ones, we have a family room with closed circuit TV, allowing you to see and hear everything. Most weeks at our 9:30am service, primary school aged children are invited to a special time in the “Kave” under our Worship Centre during the Bible talk.

Why do we gather to worship?
We worship God
the Father

We believe that God the Father created and sustains everything that exists, including the earth and our very bodies. So we gather to thank and praise God the Father as our amazing Creator and Sustainer.

We worship God
the Son, Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who — through his death on the cross and resurrection — rescues, heals, and makes us whole. So we gather to receive these good gifts of salvation, healing, and wholeness from Him.

We believe that God is Spirit, who strengthens us by his Word to believe. (“Spirit” means “breath” — you receive someone’s breath when they speak their word). So we gather to hear and receive God’s Word, and be strengthened in faith to trust.

As a Lutheran Church, what we believe is summarised in the Augsburg Confession (1580). You can read an introductory guide, or the full statement.

Our Staff Team

Everyone plays a vital role on the Immanuel Church Team,

but we have some paid staff to help us walk together along the path.
