The Crowded House Sharrowvale is a gospel church with a network of communities scattered across the city.
Our vision is to develop and deploy disciples who, in their shared life, proclaim the gospel where Christ is neither named nor known, locally and to the ends of the earth.
All members of our church are part of Ministry Teams. These are small communities of believers who seek to reach particular neighbourhoods or people groups in our city with the gospel in the context of everyday life. These teams are the primary context for bible teaching, discipleship, shared life and mission. They are also the primary context where we hope to reach those who neither name nor know Christ. Our conviction is that as the unreached encounter the shared life of the Christian community, they will see and experience the most powerful demonstration and explanation of the gospel.
While the heart of our church life is in Ministry Teams, it's still important to us that we gather as a church. Our weekly gatherings at 215 Sharrow Vale Road are on Sundays at 11am, with refreshments from 10:30am.
At our Gathering, we sing God’s praises and hear him speak through the Bible. You can expect a warm welcome, contemporary music and an engaging talk. Whether you want to join in or just observe, you’re very welcome. A creche is available during the Gathering, as well as a programme for pre-school and primary-aged children.
Everyone is welcome, whether you’re familiar with church or just want to explore the Christian faith.
If you'd like to know more, please get in touch or visit us at a Gathering.
On Sundays we meet at 215 Sharrow Vale Road at 11am. Come on up the steps, we serve refreshments before our gathering at around 10:30am.
Just look out for The Crowded House sign.
