Hello and welcome! We’d love to have you join us.

We gather together every week for our Sunday Celebrations to experience His presence through worship, the scriptures and ministering to one another. You’ll also find the River Cafe which is open before and after all 4 Celebrations with a delicious selection of food and drinks to enjoy with our church family.

If you’re new to our community, we’d love to share a meal with you! Come along to a Welcome Lunch, held every month so that you can meet us and hear a little more about the vision and ministries of The Grainery Church.

Connect groups are the heartbeat of our church. Fill in a welcome card at the information desk and we will contact you with some options suitable for your age, stage of life and location.

Interested in getting more involved in the life of The Grainery Church? Every few months we have a Join the Journey dinner, where you can discover how your gifts and talents will enrich our growing teams and ministries.

Your child/ren can learn about God in a safe and healthy environment where they are discipled, connected and having a whole lot of fun! Sunday Celebrations at 8.30am and 10.15am.

A heart to serve, a passion for the gospel and a life of worship. Grainery Youth (Year 6 – 12) empowers young people to come together each week to grow closer together as a family and to Jesus personally. Fridays from 7pm to 9pm and the Sunday Celebration at 10.15am.

Young Adults
Grainery Young Adults is a part of equipping the next generation to be passionate in practicing the way of Jesus and to become people of influence in our changing world. Throughout the year, they hold a series of topical discussion nights, worship experiences and social events to connect with our church community and beyond.

If you’re a part of the wiser generation, our VIPs senior-aged ministry is for you. We meet monthly for fellowship, a beautifully prepared meal and to hear from an inspiring speaker.

Grainery Theatre
The Grainery Church uses many forms of art to spread the Gospel, but theatre has stood as the form most unique to our community. Our annual Christmas production has become a much-anticipated event in the Novocastrian community, and we are so glad to be opening doors to reach more people during this joyous season.

Grainery Care
Grainery Care works with the least, the last and the lost in the Hunter region to bring them “Life in all its fullness”. We host weekly free community dinners, family centre courses, debt help, prayer, counselling, mentorship, the Foodcare program and much more.
