DIVERGENT CHURCH GOULBURN
(GOULBURN // CROOKWELL// MULWARRIE)
Welcome to DIVERGENT CHURCH GOULBURN
DIVERGENT CHURCH GOULBURN is in the early stages of launching in Goulburn. Our core heart is to make "All in Disciples devoted to his Kingdom" (yes, we also think that is a slightly awkward sentence ;). For more information on our mission and culture as a Church check out a blog by one of our key leaders here.
At this stage we are unsure of the timing of our public meetings and launch but we are praying into and preparing for when and how we will participate in what God is already doing through the Church in this great regional city.
Our community is shapedaround five key focuses drawn from Ephesians 4. These being Missional, Relational, Biblical, Supernatural and Global. We believe that the best form for a community follows solid clear Biblical focuses.
God loves the Goulburn and Mulwaree region and we are keen to be part of what God is already doing in this amazing region.
GOULBURN is presently meeting in a home context until we start our more public gatherings.
If you are interested in catching up for a coffee or coming on a thursday night please contact us via the 'Express you interest' form and we will get back to you about details.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Community is our heart and nature, even 'at church' we love to hang out. Our services are structured but casual with great food and coffee and time to connect. We believe in the significance of community and food helps (don’t worry there is also healthy stuff in their as well).
DIVERGENT CHURCH AM Churches tend towards a full band environment and are lively and passionate (though we do have special acoustic 'chilled' Sundays),
Our afternoon / evening Churches normally a more acoustic chilled vibe.
We love music because it is the language of the soul.
Josh (our Senior Leader / Pastor) is our primary preacher/teacher and has a style that is relational and real. He is enthused about the Bible and what God wants for the lives of his people.
We also use a variety of methods to present the word from mixed media method, through to tag team preaching, interviews and standard forms.
Additionally, we have a team that preaches around DIVERGENT CHURCH that preach regularly, bring different gifts, life experience and style
At DIVERGENT CHURCH, we believe in the word spoken both with relevance and conviction, never compromising the counsel of God. It is the word that is the foundation of everything we do in life.
Sermons at DIVERGENT Church operate under a number of different methologies from Topical to Book series.
We do not hold any methodology to be sacred, the word itself preached with clarity, in its context and with conviction is our heart and intent.
We have great leaders in Pastor Josh and Angela Reading 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.

You can also connect with crew at DIVERGENT CHURCH through the week in different small groups (Life Communities) around the city. Wherever people love to be is where we love to meet - Cafés, Work, Uni. If you are interested give us a buzz or ask at Church.
