Alpha is a course designed to allow people to have conversations about faith and its relevance to their lives. Created by Nicky Gumbel from Holy Trinity Brompton in London, over 26 million people around the world have now completed an Alpha course with many finding answers to the some of the big questions that life throws at us. Alpha is welcoming and non-judgemental and is a forum where you can share your thoughts regarding faith, no matter how controversial. You will live approximately 700,000 hours in your lifetime – why not spend less than 24 of them asking life’s biggest questions?
Alpha courses are run at regular intervals at Central Christian Church. Why not contact us to find out when our next course starts?
Central Church is a church for all generations. At Central Youth we have fun, make friends and learn how to live full of purpose as God has intended for us. Central Youth runs on Friday nights from 6pm at the church and welcomes anyone of high school age.
For more information contact us.
Kids Central meets during our Sunday morning service in Seymour and is for children from age 4 through to Grade 6. We endeavour to provide a fun and educational opportunity for children to experience and learn about God and his plan for their lives. Each week there is singing, games, craft activities and a bible story that is engaging and memorable.
The bible calls us to go into all the world and make disciples. At Central Church we do this practically through our involvement and support of various missional activities. Through these we minister to people both in our local community and around the world, supporting activities such as church planting, economic sustainability and education.
We presently operate and support the below activities:
Mercy Children’s Home was founded in 2001 by Consolate Aluoch Muga, who approached the local Welfare department to tell them that she was willing to raise orphaned children.
In 2005-2006 African Action International (AAI) joined with her to purchase the property of 4.5 acres. Much building has taken place with extensions for dining area and boys and girls bedrooms. Now the home houses up to fifty children at any one time.
AAOM’s Vision is to plant culturally relevant churches in every community and town across Australia and to train up Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to Go! Our missionaries are working full time on the field in remote towns and communities.
Just like others across the world, they have packed up house and home, left family and everything familiar to them, submersing themselves in a foreign culture to obey God’s call to a unique mission field. They live by faith, not taking financially from the church, instead serving and giving all.
Eugene and Fiona’s vision is to reach the people of Japan with the good news of Jesus and to see lives transformed and filled with purpose and hope. They are committed to seeing God’s people in Japan empowered and in turn reaching others to make disciples.
They do this by firstly partnering with Alastair and Marlene Paterson (who are field workers with ACCIM) at Hakata New Life Church and will be involved in reaching out to young adults through University Outreach and English ministry, youth, families with young children, establishing connect groups and reaching out into the local community. They also have many gifts such as music and teaching, which they will use in the church. There are also opportunities to minister at Hakata International School, a school that has been birthed out of the Church. They intend to be involved in Church Planting in the south of Japan.
Wolfgang and Dianne Sue are involved in ministry at Khon Kaen prison assisting women as needed. Their main goal remains to learn the Thai language so that they can reach the unreached people group in Isan for God.
When not studying Thai, Wolfgang and Dianne also assist with the local church ministry and are in the process of building connections to outlying villages where God is leading them to help with community development and agricultural pursuits.
