We gather every week in two locations, South West Rocks and Hat Head, for an informal service of Bible reading and teaching, singing, prayer and the Lord's Supper. We're always welcoming visitors - and welcoming them again, and again, and again, because we live on the most beautiful, liveable stretch of coast in Australia, and Holy Trinity and Hat Head Village Church are family away from home for people from all over eastern Australia - that is, 'til they stop resisting and make it their permanent home.
Why not join us, and enjoy a bit of seaside country hospitality?

Around 50 to 60 adults gather each Sunday for a service that's contemporary in style, with an emphasis on clear and relevant Bible teaching. We sing mostly current Christian songs, plus a traditional hymn or two, with the help of a small band. Regulars lead prayers, share what God is doing in their circle of friends, and we remember Jesus' death for us each week by celebrating the Lord's Supper. We love welcoming people of all ages and backgrounds, and have a lounge for nursing mums, a toddler area, and activity packs for older kids. After the formal gathering, we linger and catch up over tea, coffee, and home made goodies.

Great country atmosphere and a friendly mixed-age bunch, in a tiny classic Aussie church - it's standing room only if 30 people show up! Our gatherings have all the usual features - we read the Bible, there's a message, we pray and sing a mix of traditional and contemporary songs, and celebrate the Lord's Supper together. With such an intimate-sized group, there's time for a joke or two, and questions from the floor are welcome. Children participate in the service, and activity pages, textas and pencils are supplied as well. Why not bring your friendly pooch along, they'll feel right at home with our two regular canine friends!
