Learn about our Church Life on Sundays

What happens at church?

Our Sunday services contain a lively mix of Praise & Worship, communion, and preaching from a variety of speakers, including our senior pastor Shane Whitbourn. We meet each Sunday morning from 10am at WCC Portland Building (Formerly the Star Cinema Complex), located at 40 Julia Street, Portland, Victoria.

Details of services & special events are posted weekly on our Facebook Page, and in Friday’s Portland Observer.

Movie Nights: Our movie nights are now held separately from our Sunday Church Service. Please check our calendar or Facebook page or Click Here for upcoming movies and events.

4 kids

During the service we run programs for Preschool children through to Junior High. Each program provides a mixture of fun and teaching in an age-appropriate way:

  • Kindling Kids: Preschool program
  • Kids Ablaze: Primary School-age program
  • Young Guns: Junior High (Yr 7-9)

A live video feed of the service also screens in the Kindling Kids room and Kitchen lounge for parents needing to settle their children during the service. Leaders are all fully certified (WWCC etc)

After church

Enjoy morning tea and a chat. This is a great opportunity to connect with each other and meet new people. There is also a Jumping Castle and pool table for the younger children.

We also provide an extensive library of Christian DVDs, Books and CDs to browse for Free Loan.

During the week

we have several Life Groups for Men, Women, Mixed (M+F), Children and Teens. See Mid Week meetings for more info
