C3 Church Avalon loves our beach community and lifestyle. We are known for wearing stripes and having the best sourdough on the Peninsula! The bends don’t scare us as we know just how good it is here.

Located smack bang in the heart of Avalon Village, you’ll find it easy to connect with God and our Church community. 

Sunday mornings in Church will refresh and refocus you for the week ahead. You’ll love the worship, life-giving messages and the great people of all ages. There’s no better way to live than connected to Jesus Christ.

Why We Crave Community
By Sheralyn Bucknell | August 2, 2018

Everyone is looking for community. I have a theory that everyone goes to ‘church’. As Christians, our church is the House of God, but for others it is the surf-club, the pub, the gym, or local cafe. It’s wherever people find their community. The Church is not a building or an event, but a people.…

THE GREATEST OF THESE 1 Corinthians 13:13   Jesus spent copious amounts of his teaching time speaking about relationships.

Why Presence? – By Ps Phil Pringle

Many years ago when we first stepped out to host an annual conference focused on empowering people in the life of the Holy Spirit I had two visions of angels preparing a place – a pavilion, for God and His Presence. He spoke to me and told me He would search the hearts of those gathered in worship and on…

10 Scriptures to Declare for Healing
By C3 Church | April 21, 2018

We are confident that healing is for everyone as Exodus 15:26 tells us that God is ‘the Lord who heals us’. Isaiah 53:4-5, Matthew 8:17 and 1 Peter 2:24 tell us that Jesus, on the Cross, bore our sicknesses and carried our pains, in order to remove them from us and ‘by His stripes we…
