Phil and Chris Pringle

In 1980, Phil and Chris Pringle moved from New Zealand to Sydney to start a Church with a passion for Jesus and a desire to see this world won for Christ. Starting from scratch, just 12 people attended the very first service on Easter Sunday at Dee Why Surf Club, but with that service, C3 Church was birthed.

Phil and Chris had a vision of creating a contemporary church with vibrant music and relevant messages. This resonated with people and a crowd of people that hadn’t felt connected to Church started attending. Week by week, the altar call would be filled with people wanting to meet and experience Christ. The vision was growing.

After expanding into a Brookvale warehouse, Phil and Chris sent much-loved friends and like-minded Church builders out to plant Churches around the country and around the world, beginning the C3 Global movement.

In 1990 a patch of paddocks was transformed into the state-of-the-art venue that now exists at Oxford Falls, hosting thousands of people every weekend in kids, youth and adult services.

Further locations under the leadership of Ps Phil and Chris have been established at Silverwater, Rozelle, Penrith, Avalon, Bankstown, Manly, Merrylands, Mosman, Parramatta and Wahroonga, working together to see Sydney, a city for Christ.

Their apostolic leadership, faith in God and love of Christ has influenced thousands of lives. They are passionate about seeing people filled with God, alive in His Spirit and living with faith.

In addition to ministering at C3 Sydney services, check out the "You're Best Life" TV show, Facebook live devotionals and C3 On Demand. Ps Chris also leads our Everywoman ministry.
