Do you have to be a Christian to go to Redhill?

No.

Redhill is a Christian church, in that it’s run by Christians (which means “Jesus followers”) and our purpose and focus is all about Jesus. But you don’t have to be a Jesus follower yourself to come along. Anyone’s welcome!

 

I grew up as a Catholic / Anglican / Baptist / *other*, can I still come to Redhill?

Absolutely.

Churches come in different shapes, sizes and styles but we’re all following the same Jesus. Our team have been involved in churches from a range of denominations. No matter what tradition you may have grown up in, we would love to have you join us as we continue to discover Jesus together.

 

What can I expect if I visit on a Sunday?

What’s the dress code for Redhill?

We just wear ordinary, casual clothes. You don’t have to dress up – just come as you are (though we’d probably draw the line at mankinis).

 

Do I have to join in the singing?

No.

Singing is something that we like to do as it’s a great way of worshipping God together (read more about why we sing in these two blog posts). But it’s not the only way we worship God, and you don’t have to sing along if you don’t want to. Feel free to just listen, or take the time to reflect by writing, drawing, or just lying back chilling out!

If you want a taste of the sorts of songs we sing on Sundays, check out the Redhill Church: Songs We Sing playlist on Spotify.

 

What do I call the pastor?

We just call him Brent. You don’t need to call him by any kind of title. Though to be perfectly honest he’d probably get pretty excited if you called him Spiderman.

 

Do you have any activities for kids or teenagers?

Kids and teenagers are very welcome at Redhill. For kids, we have some basic activities and rostered supervision during Sunday gatherings in term time. We don't currently run any youth programs however we can put you in touch with other youth groups in the area. 

 

Do I have to bring a Bible, and where can I get one?

If you have one bring it along, as we refer to the Bible in our gatherings. You can download Bible apps on most smartphones, or visit Koorong bookstore at 26 Maryborough Street, Fyshwick or online.

 

I have questions about God, Jesus and the whole shebang – who can I ask?

You can check out websites about Christianity such as christianity.net.au to get you started. If you come along to one of our gatherings, feel free to ask us there. We don’t have all the answers but we’ll try our best to help you. Alternatively, contact us.

 

Do you have any links with other churches or organisations?

We are affiliated with NSW Churches of Christ, which is a mainstream Christian denomination.

We have friends and contacts in a variety of churches in Canberra, so if Redhill is not for you we would be happy to help you find another church family.
