FYI - No services for the time being (obvs)

Hope you are all staying safe (and physically distant but emotionally connected!)


Obviously there are no gatherings at the moment, but we'll continue to find ways of being together and keeping each other sane during these strange times. We care a lot more about finding ways of being a healthy community than keeping up a good show, so we're opting to put our energy into a series of crappy but hearty connection by distance efforts. If you are a facebook person there's plenty of info on the FNCC facebook page - singalongs, group meditations, zoom chats, check ins, etc. If you're not but would like to know about what's happening, feel free to send us your contact details through the "Contact" section of this website and we'll loop you in.


Again, we encourage everyone to be creative in how we care and love for one another during this time. We also encourage the community to check in with one another-  we will be affected in many different ways, some more obvious than others.


Much love to you all :)

- The Board and CPLT.

Hello


Hello


We're a church. In a community. Called Fitzroy North. So we decided to call ourselves "Fitzroy North Community Church" ...clever huh? 

Thanks.


Stumbled here accidentally? Want to know more about us? Hoping you've found the church of your dreams? (Unless you have some pretty weird dreams, you probably haven't... but we do have a few kinda nice people and a really good wooden ceiling, if that's what you're into.)  


Our community is made up of all kinds of people, mostly from the Inner North. Together we're slowly trying to learn to live together in a way that somehow reflects Jesus and not maim each other too seriously in the process. Faith doesn't come easily to many of us, so we try to make space for big questions and for big doubts - while remaining open to our suspicion that Jesus and the upside-down kingdom may actually be very good news. Despite our somewhat comical efforts, beauty and goodness continue to appear in unexpected ways, perhaps they are glimpses of who Desmond Tutu describes as "The God of Surprises".


If you want to know more about our community without having to take the awkward step of meeting any of us, maybe start with our Shaping Stories". If that doesn't put you off you're more than welcome to join us on a Sunday sometime. If you turn up at 10:15 for a cup of tea you'll probably beat most of us there, but we get underway soon after.


Feel free to have a poke around our site too... be gentle though.

We would also like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we gather, lament and pray on today, the Wurundjeri-Willam people of the Kulin nation. We would like to acknowledge their stewardship of the land that now sustains us and pay our respects to their elders past, present and future. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded, and grieve that many who claim to be followers of Christ were complicit in the colonisation of this land and the unjust treatment of its indigenous people.
