A lot of people have perceptions and opinions about Church and some of them quite frankly, are true. But is that really what the church is about, the real church?
Despite popular opinion, the Church is not actually a place for perfect people. In fact, it is purpose-built for imperfect people. Jesus didn’t come for the self-righteous but the soul-sick, the down and out, the broken and rejected, the good, the bad and the ugly things in our lives. He is all about people no matter who, what or where they came from, and he proved that through the Cross.
We are a STRICTLY INCLUSIVE church. What does that mean? It means we believe that the Church shouldn't be a country club for the morally elite, but rather a hospital of hope for humanity - a place where you find acceptance, belonging, genuine friendship and ultimately, life transformation through Jesus.
C3 Cronulla is all about discovering Jesus in a community of people who all have unique stories, challenges and experiences but share a desire to do the journey together.
We believe that The Gospel is for everyone, regardless of background, upbringing or church 'experience' , and that real message of Jesus is one of relentless grace, unconditional love, authentic community, and through his grace, the ability to change the world around us.
Join with us as we give towards spreading the inclusive message of Jesus.
If you are unable to come visit or want a taste of what we are about before you venture on in, have a listen to our podcasts!
Every Sunday regardless of where you are at on your journey we want you not to discover religion but relationship with God. Jesus is the way this happens and we want every single person to have an authentic real and vibrant relationship with Him
We understand that it takes more than just attending a Sunday service once a week to walk out our Christian life. We believe its important that you find authentic community (really great friends) . We believe life change happens in the context of community. This happens through community groups. A smaller environment thats aimed at leaving you encouraged, strengthened in your faith and united with others . Click here to sign up for a community group.
We all want to know our life has meaning and to understand the real purpose of our life. We believe each person has a unique and specific purpose and calling and as a church, we want to help every person unearth what that is and encourage them in it. Our Grow course is specifically designed to help you do exactly that. Click here to find out more and sign up for our grow course.
The greatest evidence of a life that is truly transformed by Jesus, is that we use what God has given us to serve one another and make a difference in the world around us. If you want to be involved in serving the people of this area come and join a team. How? Our grow course is where you discover the best way to do this. Click here to sign up for the grow course.
Let’s start the year the best way…in prayer. We are asking you to commit to praying every day..YES EVERYDAY for 21 days.

James and Alanna have pretty much grown up in C3 Church at Oxford Falls. James took over the High School’s ministry when he was 17 and then came on staff full time at age 21. At 23, James and Alanna became the Youth Pastors at Oxford Falls for 6 years before moving oversees to work with C3 San Diego.
In August 2013 they came home to Sydney and in March 2014 they started C3 Cronulla. Their desire is to build a Church that is, at its core, strictly inclusive. They feel a strong affinity for Cronulla, the Sutherland Shire region and beyond and are incredibly passionate about seeing people encounter a life changing relationship with Jesus.
James and Alanna live in the Shire with their three children (or ‘cubs’, as they are referred to).
