Every Saturday morning around the world, Seventh-day Adventists gather together in community to worship Jesus through music, prayer and Bible teachings.
Our day starts with Sabbath School at 9:30am. For children, there are songs, stories, crafts and fun activities. For the adults there is a study group where the Bible is read and discussed in a less formal setting than a typical church service. Here audience participation is welcomed. You can ask questions and learn more.
Our church’s main worship program runs from 11am to noon. Singing, prayer are always guaranteed and most often a sermon together with a children's story, but depending on the week, you might be treated to a praise and testimony service, special music, drama or other creative expression.
Our church really is for everyone and we’d love you to join us!
Please note that we mostly meet at Upper Ross Community Centre (CommunityGRO building), 1/43 Allambie Lane, Rasmussen, Townsville, QLD but do sometimes meet at the Citilife Church building at 521 Hervey Range road, Bohle Plains as given below. Please check our calendar to confirm our meeting place for the current Sabbath.
We will be updating our site to show both maps in the very near future.
When are worship services held?
Every Sabbath (Saturday) morning.
Do I need a Bible?
No. You don’t have to bring anything—just yourself. If you would like a Bible, you can borrow one when you get here. You can also download a free Bible app to your smartphone.
Should I go if I don’t know anyone?
Our church is a place where all people are welcome, whether you’re younger or older, a lifelong Christian or a spiritual seeker. We would love to meet you! If you feel nervous, bring a friend or just send us a message.
Will I be asked to give money?
Every week we give our regular attenders the opportunity to support a variety of causes. It’s not required or nor is it at all expected that you give a donation.
Will I be asked to speak publicly or pray?
If you participate in a small group Bible study, you’ll probably be asked to introduce yourself (first name) and everyone else will likely be introduced at the same time, and you will be able to offer an opinion on what’s being discussed. It is not typical for a first-time guest to be singled out in the main worship service. Prayer is an important part of worship, and you are welcome to kneel with us in prayer, but no one will ever force you to pray or ask you to pray aloud.
Who do I speak to if I have any questions?
Ask if you can speak to one of the leadership team—the pastor or one of the elders. Or just start with someone who looks friendly!
