c3 church avalon




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

Located smack in the heart of Avalon Village, you’ll find it easy to connect with God and our Church community. Regardless of what Instagram filter you use, we know things aren’t always perfect. At C3 Avalon, you don’t have to be. 

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.

Prayer and Worship

We believe in a miracle-working God who, in His love, hears and responds. We pray with faith and worship with passion. Time spent in prayer and worship lifts our spirit, refocuses us on the bigness and ability of God to go before us and meet our needs. He is able!

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

As for Me and My House
By Phil Pringle | October 21, 2017

 AS FOR ME Joshua 24:15   Vision always starts with a seed. Someone who plants a seed establishes a legacy. Everything begins with someone; and that someone could be you. Ps Chris reminded us how C3 started 37 years ago with only 13 people at an Easter service. And look at the amazing legacy those 13 people started!…
