Become a New Churches for New Communities Supporter so we can Support New Churches

Why new churches for new communities?

Over the next forty years Sydney’s population is expected to grow by up to 3 million. Approximately 50% of this will be west of Parramatta. At current rates, we will only have one church per 100,000 people in the new developments. We need faith, vision and generosity to reach new populations with the Gospel!


Our Progress

We’re building facilities across Sydney to support new churches. Stanhope Gardens began 10 years ago in a leisure centre. Their new building was dedicated in October 2020. Construction commenced at Hope Anglican Church, Leppington in the same year. Despite the setbacks of Covid lockdowns in 2021, their new buildings were completed by the end of 2021. Our focus now turns to helping Life Anglican Church Marsden Park with their own facilities. Beyond that we need a pipeline of support for new churches every year, for the next 30 years if we are to keep up with population growth in Greater Sydney.

For each project NCNC has committed to raising $2.5M for construction costs.
