New local churches are a key part of the future growth of the Christian Church in Australia
The New Churches Project aims to support the Australian Church to invest in new churches or gatherings.
What does ‘new church’ mean?
  • A church that started from 2011 onward.
  • Different labels may be used: church plants, new initiatives, faith communities, micro church, simple church, and so on.

How does it work?
You can help Find out about new churches, or add new churches to our database. They can be prospects, active, or not active. Annual snapshots will map the changes across movements and across the country. Research reports will provide insights into innovation in church life. Our hope and prayer is that leaders are encouraged and equipped. We need new churches!
