Diverse church reports growth in Australia


MELBOURNE, Australia — In three years, a Church of Christ in this city of 5 million souls has grown from six members to about 30, including people from the city’s Sri Lankan and Sudanese communities. 

“We wanted to bring back those who had stopped coming to worship and to spread the Word of God to all in this area,” said Analene Forbes, a member of the Greater Dandenong Church of Christ, in an interview with Intersections magazine. The church meets in what she described as “a fast growing suburb with many different communities.”

Members of other congregations have helped teach Bible classes.

“We thank our visiting teachers wholeheartedly,” she said. “An experienced song leader is what we would ideally like to have, but in the meantime we manage somehow, knowing that God listens to our hearts.”
