At DIVERGENT CHURCH CANBERRA CITY we have a brief 'half time break', a chance to grab and coffee, connect, pray, and be a real community.


Also vitally important to us are our LIFE COMMUNITIES which you can sign up to at Church. Wherever people love to be is where we love to meet - cafés, work, uni, homes. If you are interested give us a buzz or ask at Church.

Children and Youth are not the Church of the future, they are the Church on now. Our heart is to see them thrive in their faith


Our Sunday kids and youth communities cover 3 - 17 years, with additional activities for Youth outside of the Sunday. 


For more info on kids or youth you can go to the Kids page or Youth page


We also have a parents' room available if needed.



DIVERGENT CHURCH CITY AM leadership team is led by Shaun and Elise Lee. Shaun and Elise serve with a heart to walk alongside others and encourage them on their journey of faith. Shaun priorities relationships with others, listening and encouraging them to deepen their faith.
Elise has a deep understanding of the word and is gifted in sharing this with others. They enjoy gathering people together and exploring nature – think hiking, biking, and walking!

Team Leadership

We have great senior leaders in Pastor Josh and Angela Reading and regional leaders in Pastor Kade & Rachel Klemke but as a Church, we also wholeheartedly operate with a wider Pastoral Leadership team that serves our gatherings and church as a whole. In each gathering are specific Pastoral Leaders that care for and lead that gathering.
