Who we are.

We’re creating a community of believers who love Jesus and love each other and are passionate about finding their purpose in life.

We love church. We love family.

We welcome everyone and want you to find our church to be a place where you can belong.

We are passionate about people.

We have found our purpose in life and we want to see people find their purpose for living — we want to help you to do this.

This a place where you can belong. Everybody fits. Everyone is welcome. Everyone is wanted. Everyone counts.


Our Pastors

John & Anna Button

John and Anna have been married for 30 years and serving in ministry for over 30 years.

John was born in Adelaide South Australia, and Anna was born in Auburn, New South Wales. They have 4 daughters, two sons and one son-in-law. Their adult children serve in the church in various ministry capacities. John and Anna love to see people of all ages moving in their area of gifting and ministry. They are always looking for opportunities to release people in their gifts and talents and have a philosophy of building leaders by every generation, for every generation.

John is a prophetic voice for the church. He loves moving in the Holy Spirit by giving encouraging words of fresh revelation to individuals. He has a gift of preaching that brings the Word to life, at the same time making it practical. John comes from a large family and loves to meet new people and enjoys a good yarn (story) or two! John loves everything sport. He is umpiring and coaches in the AFL amateur league and also rides bikes for fun and fitness.

Anna is a gifted vocalist who has been leading worship for many years. She loves to see people come alive in the presence of God. Anna comes from a large family as well and claims this is where her vocal chords were honed. As she tells it, to be heard in a house with so many people, you must learn to speak up! Anna also teaches primary education and loves to read and run.
