The vision of NBCC 

To grow a community of people of faith and love who will affect their world for God

The Background and history of NBCC

Meetings at Northern Beaches Christian Centre in the Mona Vale Community Centre began in December 1979. Midweek bible studies had been held by Paul OSullivan in the Northern Beaches in Newport since 1974, after Paul and Tineke completed their Faith Centre Ministry Training College course on the North Shore in Sydney.

In 1975 Paul and Tineke started Gosford Christian Centre and also travelled with their then two children, Jessica and Matthew, to the Philippines where they lived for eight months in 1976, helping to set in the indigenous Filipino leadership for Christian Renewal Center in Manilla.

In 1981 Northern beaches Christian School was commenced  in the nearby Serbian Orthodox Church hall in Vineyard St. Mona Vale. In 1982 the school relocated to Booralie Rd. Terrey Hills on a leased five-acre block. In 1984 a school building program commenced on a 4.5-hectare (11acre) block of land further down Booralie Rd, and in 1987 a church auditorium was built. The church moved from the Mona vale Community centre up to the new auditorium.

Both the school and the church continued to grow, with five other church plants growing out of NBCC over the years. In 2002 the church endeavoured to purchase a larger block of land up on Mona vale Rd., hoping to extend both school and church facilities, but this venture met with difficulties and ultimately failed. The school however continued to grow successfully and eventually occupied the entire site in Terrey Hills. In 2005 it became necessary for Paul and the leadership team to temporarily relocate back to Mona Vale Community Hall. NOW we meet at the Seventh day Adventist Church in Vineyard St. at 10 AM on Sundays

Small groups are held through the week, mostly on a fortnightly basis. There are Men’s meetings for Bible study and discussion, ladies Bible studies and discussion groups and home-church meetings.

These are words that I believe would be the kinds of things Jesus would be saying to us all by his Spirit. I often get these thoughts in prayer and I have been prompted to write them down and pass them on. Click on JESUS MAIL or go to the JESUS MAIL menu above for some samples.
