OUR CHURCH IS A FAMILY THAT LOVES HAVING A POSITIVE IMPACT IN OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY AS WELL AS THE WORLD AROUND US BY SHARING THE MESSAGE AND ACTIONS OF GOD’S GREAT LOVE TO ALL.
More than Sunday
Coming to a church that feels like family is amazing. When you walk in the doors you will quickly lose the feeling of being a visitor at someone else’s table and feel right at home. And that feeling isn't just restricted to Sundays either. People are meeting together for all kinds of reasons through the week, from playgroups to coffee catch ups, Bible studies or meals together. We also put on fun local events and community and faith based programs that encourage people, and which help us show God’s love to the beautiful people all around us. Whether you’re in the thick of family life, enjoying retirement or anywhere in between, you’ll find your fit with us. Whether you’ve known God a long time or you aren’t even sure what you think about Him yet, our community is a safe place to explore and grow with Jesus.
If you have kids they’ll love learning about God and the value of caring for others at Kids Church; plus they’ll have a fun time making friends of their own. You’ll be able to worship with others, and sit and listen to a message that will challenge you to keep moving forward in knowing God no matter where you are on that journey. You’ll also have the opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of real people through our global mission projects that we do together with other INChurch locations across the world. These are projects that are on a scale which you would never be able to achieve just on your own, so you’ll get a real buzz out of being part of something much bigger than yourself.
My name is Troy and I pastor this church with my wife Nicole. Years ago I went on an outreach trip to Asia one time as a teenager. I was so preoccupied with my own comfort I ended up brushing off a young orphan boy who had seen terrible atrocities, and although filthy, was really just craving love and attention. Sadly I was more concerned about my twenty dollar white T-shirt getting dirty than caring about him. The look of rejection I saw in him has stayed with me and I never want to feel the shame I felt that day again. Nicole and I have made it our mission to genuinely love people, and especially the people of Darwin in the 8 years we have lived here since moving from Penrith to start this church. It’s also our mission to help the people in our church family to love the world around us. Our three children (two of which were born here) have grown up in this church and have really taken on our heart to love and care for others as have many of the other children in our church community. It’s wonderful seeing children actively planning ways to help kids in need in other parts of the globe because they’ve caught the passion to put actions to words and live a life that counts for others.

But most of all, we’d love to meet you. If you’d like to come along on a Sunday morning or evening, we’d love to be able to have a small welcome pack ready for you.

No matter what stage of life you’re at, INChurch Darwin has an active community that meets, talks, learns and has fun together throughout the week. Come be part of a church family that really loves God and really cares about people.
