Our ACC churches in NSW do an incredible job engaging their communities! There are so many stories every day of the week of churches supporting, empowering and building strong relationships in their local communities. ACC community engagement is all about shifting mindsets on how to relate to our local communities in a more engaging way.
The vast majority of Australians aren’t waking up Sunday morning wondering ‘what is a great Sunday service I can go to?’. These Australians are the very ones we want to engage, because although they may not be thinking church service, they do have eternity placed in their heart and we are confident they need Jesus just as much as we do.
What if our churches looked more like a place that enhances our community 7 days a week? To think like a community engaging church is to have a facility that provides practical support but is also a place to engage, to relax, be social and all the things Australians like to do. Our churches should be a well in our communities, a place where people come for something they think they need, but leave with something so much more.
