A New Way Faith Community

"there is nothing new under the sun."

- Ecclesiastes 1:9

We believe in finding A New Way of doing things, while holding onto timeless truth. As a Christian non-profit, our mission is simple: to help everyone grow their faith. We are based on the Central Coast, NSW.


This is not a new religion & this is not a new understanding of the bible...

This is a new way to engage in Christian community.

We Create Online Media

Our newest initiative is 'The Audio Bible Project,' an accessible, engaging audio Bible in podcast format.

We Host Events

Our Sundown Sessions and Bible studies are relaxed, simple and authentic. There is something for everyone.

For a detailed outline of our mission please read the vision and prospectus.
