C3 Church Manly



Church for the people of Manly.

C3 Manly is a church community that’s focused on knowing Jesus, finding community and discovering purpose. We get real in church with a focus on worship, good people and honest preaching and we’re passionate about seeing people find their purpose and be included in community. We can guarantee there will be people of all generations up for a chat, a powerful service to start (or end!) your week on the right note, and morning tea in the sun.

Whether you are looking for a new church, or have never stepped foot in one before; whether you prefer the beach or the skate park, we would love to meet you.


All are welcome - we would love to save you a seat!

Compelling Services

Our Sunday services include powerful worship, honest preaching and are a time to get to know who Jesus is in our central Manly location.

Connect Groups

We are not made to do life alone, but with others in community. Connect Groups exist to build genuine and meaningful relationships and we know that as groups gather every week across Manly and surrounds, you will find a group to join that suits your fit.

Learn to Pray
By C3 Church | 23 September 2017

TALKING TO GOD.   When you learn to pray remember you don’t need fancy words, or a script of what to say. God responds to faith-filled prayers from the heart.
