Who Are We?

We believe Jesus is the hope of the world.
We believe Jesus brings transformation, forgiveness, renewal, healing and hope – and we want to be a church where people from all walks of life can come and encounter Jesus.

Our church community is made up of all sorts of people from many different backgrounds, ages and walks of life. What brings us together is our faith in Jesus Christ and our desire to follow Jesus together as one faith community.

We believe in Jesus and want to follow him, serve him, and show our wider community his love, compassion and grace through the way we live our lives. We are a contemporary church, and we believe the good news of Jesus Christ is relevant, and we seek to bear witness to Jesus in all of our gatherings and in our lives Sunday to Sunday. We believe Jesus cares for the poor and the broken, and so we are active in meeting the needs of those in our local and global community through our service, prayer and giving.

A Safe Church 

Williamstown Church of Christ is committed to being a safe church. In June 2018, we launched our Community Covenant, which all of our ministry leaders and people in positions of influence have covenanted to uphold and live out, in their ministry roles. Our church has a zero tolerance policy in relation to abuse of vulnerable people including children and is currently working towards the full implementation of the Churches of Christ Child Safety Policy, which was adopted by the Church Executive in February 2017.
