Capital Country Region is a smaller geographic region encompassing Canberra and Queanbeyan and stretching out to the south to the Snowy Mountain area and to the north as far as Goulburn. There are 16 Australian Christian Churches in the region, 11 in Canberra (3 of which are cultural churches), 2 in Queanbeyan, and 3 in rural towns.
The opportunity for growth through Church Planting is high as we are seeing rapid population growth to the east, west and north of the city of Canberra. Estimates suggest that these areas will house another 60,000 people by 2020. There are also opportunities in the rural areas of Bombala, Yass and Young.
It’s exciting to see what God is doing in the nation’s capital and to see our churches growing numerically and healthily.
