We work in the area of business, government, health care, education, science and technology and community development. 

We reach out with God's love to plant new fellowships of believers and support + encourage churches wherever we find them. 

We mobilise the church to fulfil the great commission, to take God's love to: 


The LAST (Tribes and communities still wanting to hear for the first time). 

The LEAST  (those overlooked by the world, whether it's refugees, families in Somalia or the homeless at our back door. 

The LOST  (A world that thinks it's finding life, but really falling deeper into darkness and confusion).

We are committed to ending Bible poverty, so that all can read or hear for themselves of God's great love for them. 

Come and join us to see this world of ours transformed till every heart and every community reflects the beauty of our wonderful saviour. 


Canberra is the National Capital of Australia, nestled in the Southern Highlands, surrounded by forests and the Snowy Mountains. 

The Lord has given us a gorgeous 6 ha (15 Acres) property only 8km from the city centre. 

We live in rooms and apartments, and share meals together in our dining room. The whole community joins together for worship and intercession, outreach activities, conferences and events, BBQs and fun times. 

Kids love our property - the swings, rec room, trampoline , etc.

We can offer childcare for families doing training courses, and there is a great Christian school nearby. 

Many afternoons you'll see a mob of kangaroos grazing on our front oval.
