C3 Church Manly is a wonderful place to call home. Located close to the beach, join us for Church, a surf, brekkie at nearby cafes or walk along the sand! We love our locals, visitors and backpackers just passing through.
What's it like? It's a great place to connect with Jesus and find peace during a busy week. He is the answer that we all need. Our one hour service begins at 10 am. As you enter through our doors you'll experience heaven-inspired worship and relevant Bible teaching, to encourage and prepare you for your week ahead. We are all about hospitality, kindness and inclusion to help you feel right at home.
