Frequently Asked Questions

 

How do I find the Corrimal Community Church (CCC) Hub? 

The Hub (as we call it) is located at 9 Augusta Street East Corrimal NSW Map

 

How would you describe this church? What do you believe? 

Whilst it may seem easiest and clearest to simply answer that we are a Baptist affiliated church that believes what main stream, orthodox Christian churches believe; a better answer is that we here at CCC are on a specific journey that we collectively believe, will, in the short to long term make more sense to everyone. Here follows, a few paragraphs that explain what we mean.

At Corrimal Community Church, we realize that whilst many believe in God, people are often uncomfortable with organized religion. Well … so are we!  We are a bunch of everyday people who simply think the church should look more like Jesus than anything we can come up with. 

 

We are Bible believing followers of Jesus and as such are committed to declaring, representing and demonstrating God's kingdom and seeking God's will being done firstly in OUR hearts and through OUR lives and then in and through our relationships with others - ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN. We are a work in progress and we hope beyond hope that as we love and serve those we connect with, they might more clearly see Jesus and become energized about sharing this journey with us.

 

So, whatever previous experience you have had with either this church or some other, we’d like to think you could regard us as a friend in your neighbourhood. A friend that is willing to have a go at making some difference because we believe that Jesus came to earth to show us what we could become if we are motivated and compelled primarily by God’s love. 

 

Maybe that’s an idea which resonates with you? 

 

We are sick to death of being bullied by the world’s selfish agendas, so we invite you to partner with us, encourage us or even challenge us and the people around us to better reflect the culture of heaven which ONLY Jesus represented. 

 

We are trying to operate more like a caring family or team than an aloof or sometimes judgemental institution. We admit that we won’t always get it right but it’s our intention, so we will keep working at it.

 

As such, we are trying to create a variety of spaces where we can safely meet with Jesus, thank him for his sacrificial love which rescued us, and find ways to help our friends discover the life changing difference that a relationship with God can make.  

 

As John (one of Jesus’ first friends) wrote about in chapter 12 of his book, we are learning together how to BE Present: IN Love, WITHOUT Judgement

 

We do hope you can join us on the journey soon!

 

Are there times other than 10.30am on Sunday mornings when I could attend a service/meeting? 

Yes. Sundays might be the only day families have any time to catch up or may have a number of sporting and other activities that make attending a Sunday meeting challenging.

Our (developing) new schedule will provide opportunities for connection, faith and community-building at other times during the week. To find out more, watch the changeable sign out front or contact us via our listed contact options.

Where should I park my car? 

This Hub facility has been located here for over 60 years and now finds itself in a 100% residential zone. We partner with the council trying hard not to impede our neighbours' parking and street access. There are usually half a dozen street parks in front of the Hub and in front of a few houses each side. We do have a driveway for dropping off anyone who has mobility challenges and a couple of cars can park on the concrete slab on the front lawn (and around this if it's DRY). 

If you can walk from 50 to 300 metres, there are dozens of parking spots off road in the entrance ground to the Street Park about 3 doors east or on Pioneer Road further east, or west of the Hub into Duff Parade.    

THANK YOU for your support, patience and understanding. 

NB: For larger events like Weddings / Funerals we position street signs and give directions for parking.   

 

Do you provide for children during your meetings/services and or at other times in the week? 

We'd love to provide child minding support during meetings (all our volunteers have up to date WWC/VP checks and Safe Churches certification).  There are also plenty of areas if you need 'time out' with your kids, including a creche, lounge area, kitchen and hall.

Keep visiting our weekly schedule page for developments and updates in children and youth engagement opportunities as they emerge. 

 

Am I expected to make a monetary offering to the church either by way of a collection at a weekly meeting OR via electronic transfer?

No. Obviously we are a not-for-profit organization that is only able to provide services based upon the commitment and support of those who give regular monetary support BUT we believe that 'giving' is a person's response to the work we do out of their own relationship with God.  If you have questions or would just like to talk about this, please make an appointment to see our minister via this link and he will gladly help clear things up for you about this issue OR ANY other.  If you'd like to attend a meeting/service but feel you can't donate, please don't let that stop you hanging out with us - there's absolutely no obligation or expectation for this.

 

How can I donate or deposit a financial gift of support electronically if I'd like to? 

For direct deposits our account details are:

Westpac Account Name: Corrimal Community Church
BSB: 032685
Account Number: 378001
Reference: "Donation" or the like.

 

I have hearing and/or visual challenges, is there any special provision for this?  

Yes. We have a built in hearing loop in the auditorium and a large, easily viewed TV screen for data projection. For any more specific needs, please ask at reception which is located at the northern - cafe space end of the auditorium, and someone will help you as is possible. 

 

What does a weekly service/meeting look like? 

At our weekly 10.30am Sunday meeting, the key idea is a large lounge room. We are everyday people providing a service to the community which is accessible, relaxed and hopefully energizing for daily life. As such we dress casually and comfortably. 

We do our best to provide contemporary and good quality music for worship singing or inspirational items.

You can sit anywhere and we want you to be as comfortable as you need to be.

We provide a communion ceremony, at this stage on the first Sunday of each month (i.e. eating bread and drinking grape juice to remember Jesus Christ's sacrifice for us when He died on the Cross - Jesus instigated this remembrance ceremony at his Last Supper).

We provide opportunity for people to receive prayer for a need in their life (privately OR publicly as needed), whatever that need might be.

Our ministers share the truth that God reveals to them as they read the Bible. It's like a big conversation, engaging and interactive. Our expectation is that all who attend will feel they can engage with what's being shared respectfully and that what is shared is NOT something that is incontestable. We encourage people to submit their questions  after the meeting or via the pastoral cards at the end of seating rows (which you can deposit into a designated box near the eastern entry/exit or email or text if preferred.   

We encourage our people to invite visitors/guests/other church family members to share a cuppa or have some lunch together. Our provided morning tea happens BEFORE the 10.30am meeting from about 9.30am so you are welcome to join us earlier than 10.30am if that works for you and we share lunch as a church family on the 3rd Sunday each month so we can continue the conversations and or grow in our knowledge and support of each other.

 

Are there other ways I can find out what's happening, things I can pray for or engage with in some way?

Yes.

Visit our news blog www.corrimalcommunitychurch.com.au/blog  where weekly updates are posted.

We also invite attenders to subscribe to the 'Rising HOPE' journal which is sent by our minister in bite size pieces at least weekly and sometimes more. This is designed to both help clarify the story of our church's life and mission in real time and give resources for prayerful review and action.
