In 2006 our Church discerned that we were called to initiate five new worshipping communities by 2021. Newlife Pac Pines now Uniting North, and Village Church are expressions of that. Now here in 2018, we have this amazing opportunity to see Newlife Brisbane pioneered as we partner with the Albert Street community that has stood here in this place since 1889 in this incredible facility.
On November 8th 1889, the Albert St Wesleyan Methodist Church officially opened its doors.
Over 130 years later, this iconic Gothic styled Cathedral is still one of the most picturesque settings of the inner city, nestled right in the heart of Brisbane’s bustling CBD.
With a seating capacity of approximately 1000 people and boasting a majestic 2,250-pipe organ, Albert Street Uniting Church (as it is now known) is among Brisbane’s most photographed attractions, admired by tourists and locals alike as they enjoy the vibrancy of King George Square.
In 2017, The Moreton Rivers Presbytery approached Newlife Uniting Church with the idea of birthing a new worshiping community that could reach young urban professionals and young adults in the heart of Brisbane city. After much prayer and extensive conversation, we are excited to announce that Albert Street Uniting Church will be the location for our Brisbane Campus, beginning later this year.
We will be partnering with the current Albert Street congregation, who are doing fantastic work in Brisbane CBD. They have welcomed us to plant a Newlife Campus alongside, but separate to, their current congregation, utilizing their facility to help reach the people of inner-city Brisbane.
