What kind of church are we?
The Christian Reformed Church of Wonga Park is a community based church and members are spread across Melbourne with most members concentrated in the Eastern and South Eastern suburbs. At Wonga Park we are a fellowship of ordinary people, saved by Christ and renewed by the Holy Spirit. We aim to bring the good news of love and peace to the community. God sent his Son to rescue the world from its rebellion against Him. We believe that Jesus is Lord over every area of life.
Regardless of your situation, Jesus Christ offers hope, peace and meaning for your life. Only He can forgive sin and provide eternal life. He is our only answer to the struggles we face in daily living.
We would love to share this with you.
The Christian Reformed Churches of Australia (CRCA) is a denomination of about 50 congregations and smaller groups established across all states since 1951. The CRCA is part of the Protestant â€“ Calvinist (that is, Reformed and Presbyterian) wing of the Christian Churches.
What is worship like at Wonga Park?
At Wonga Park worship is a mixture of contemporary and traditional styles in our services. Preaching and teaching the Bible are central in all of our services. Wonga Park is dedicated to bring the good news, â€œthe gospelâ€ to all who cross our path.
What should I wear?
Wear what you feel is comfortable and appropriate for worship. Our congregation covers a broad spectrum of age and background. Some prefer to dress up while others prefer to dress down, but weâ€™re all here for the same reason â€” to focus our hearts and minds on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Are there activities for my young children during the services?
For parents with babies we have a crying room â€“ a glass fronted room at the back of the worship centre where parents can care for their babies while participating in the service.
We have an active childrenâ€™s ministry.
Will my children be safe while we are at the service?
Wonga Parkâ€™s Childrenâ€™s Ministry has a place for every child to learn about Jesus. Our leaders and childrenâ€™s ministry volunteers are trained in teaching children of all ages about Christâ€™s great love for them and are dedicated to providing a safe and loving environment for them to grow in the loving knowledge of Jesus Christ. We comply to Federal and State legislation and you can view our Child Protection Policy here.
What about my older children?
Wonga Park provides our teenagers and young adults with the opportunity to discover Godâ€™s purpose for their lives. We have an active youth and young adults ministry as well. Please contact our Youth Worker for more information regarding this ministry.
