At Kingborough Family Church, we’re about loving God, and loving people. We’re passionate about empowering people, living compassionately, and serving our community as best we can.
We love doing life together. Church isn’t just about coming together on a Sunday, but it’s about connecting with each other, building relationships and sharing in one another’s lives. We aim to be inclusive, generous, and most of all, we welcome you, no matter who you are or where you’ve come from.
Kingborough Family Church is affiliated with the Apostolic Church Australia, a Pentecostal movement that has its origins in the Welsh Revival of 1904. We operate with an eldership, who provide oversight to the church, who are accountable to our network leader and national leadership team.

“Equipping people and Transforming Communities”
Our passion is to introduce people to Jesus Christ so they can be transformed by His love and power. We desire that all people would come into a living, life-changing relationship with Him and realise that all we do needs to be driven by His love and performed in His supernatural power.
Ephesians 3:19 “…may you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God.”
Our purpose is to equip people for life and ministry through training and discipleship; we are passionate about being a church where people discover their uniqueness, realise their dreams and fulfil their God-given potential. Our desire is to mobilise new generations of effective Christian leaders.
Ephesians 4:11-12 “He is the one who gave these gifts to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church.”
Our plan is to be a significant church in our city, influencing our workplaces, schools, communities and social groups. We believe the church must engage with the community in which it exists and are committed to impacting our world through service and outreach. We have a heart to bless and encourage other churches and Christian leaders. We also have a strong call to reaching the nations and are committed to effective church planting.
Acts 1:8 “But when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, you will receive power and will tell people about me everywhere — in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
