Our Vision


Jesus said He would build His church, and the gates of Hell will not overcome it. We love the church, because it belongs to Christ. The church is many things, and at the very least it extends beyond the idea of a building with stained glass windows and a steeple.

We describe our church as a community of disciples; anchored in hope, growing in faith, and walking in love.

Meet our pastors
James and Shanthy Rose

Together with their three sons, they bring a passion for the local church, raising disciples of Jesus through sound doctrine and a plethora of sport. After 20 years of leadership & ministry they still love God, love people and love each other.

We’re part of C3 Church Global

Our movement is committed to healthy relationships and connection between ministers and churches. As an international family our members are able to walk into any of our C3 Churches around the world and know they’re home. We are united with Christ in His vision, and therefore our mission, to save the lost, make disciples and build His church.

With a passion for Jesus and desire to see this world won for Christ, Phil and Chris Pringle came to Sydney in 1980 to start a church. With just 12 people attending an Easter service, Christian Centre Northside began and the C3 Church movement as we now know was birthed. This church grew to over 400 in 4 years and soon began planting within Sydney and beyond to cities and countries outside of Australia.
