Cherrybrook Anglican Church is chosen, holy and dearly loved by God (Colossians 3:12). Our actions and character don’t always reflect that but we are thankful for God’s forgiveness and committed to helping each other grow in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Don’t look for a church building. Each Sunday we meet at the Cherrybrook Community and Cultural Centre on Shepherd’s Lane (above Greenway Park). Meeting in a local community facility shapes our purpose and character. Church is about the people, not the building.
We exist for the local community. Our doors and hearts are open to those around us. We want everyone to know Jesus’ love and we seek to share that with whomever we meet.
Our church is as diverse as our local community. We are made up of many races, ages and backgrounds. We celebrate our differences.
God’s word, the Scriptures, is foundational to our church. The Scriptures tell us who God is, how he has saved us through Jesus Christ and how we are to respond. You can expect to hear God’s word read and explained at all of our services.
At CAC we reckon sin isn’t funny or irrelevant … it’s the biggest problem we have. There is no exception. We are all in the same boat of life that is sinking because of the gaping hole in the side. If it doesn’t catch up with us in this life, it will when we all eventually stand before God. Furthermore, there is nothing we ourselves can do about it. It’s not a matter of trying harder. We need help from outside this world.
At CAC we are constantly reminded that God sent his only son into the world to save us. He lived the perfect life on our behalf, died on our behalf and was raised on our behalf. He did it for us. At CAC we don’t have a cross on top of the building or in a stained glassed window. No, we proclaim that Christ died for you. He took the punishment for your sin. That’s love!
But if you really want to know about us, come and visit us at either 9.30am or 6.30pm every Sunday. We look forward to meeting you.
“We seek to make disciples (Matthew 28:19) who are transformed by God’s grace, through his word to:-
– follow Jesus Christ (Matthew 9:9);
– love each other (Matthew 22:39);
– serve in God’s mission field (Matthew 9:38).
