You are welcome here!

No matter who you are or where you come from you are welcome here! You matter to God and you matter to us.

We are a community of real people who don’t always have it all together, but who believe there is a God who points the way to an authentic, full, and abundant life. We are a church for anyone who wants to take a step forward in the adventure of faith, whether you are not yet sure if God exists or have been following Jesus for a lifetime.

So, if you’re new to church, looking for a church home, or want to know more about returning to faith in Jesus, we’re here for you.

Join us for any of our Sunday services at 9AM, 11AM, or 6PM each week.
You can find us at 410 York Street, Ballarat East, or join us for church online!



For the early risers, our 9AM service features traditional hymns and choruses with a time to share in fellowship together!
Online or in-person.



Targeted at families, yet open to anyone our 11AM service includes anthematic praise-style worship. Online and in-person.

‘Yorkie Kids’ runs alongside this service!



An intimate gathering, in-person only, our evening service has worship songs that are often poetic and lyrical, enjoyed by our young and young at heart.

Can my children join?

We are a family church! We love children, and they are welcome in any of our services! 
Our ‘Yorkie Kids’ program runs during our 11AM service during the school term.
You can check in for Yorkie Kids before the 11AM service.

Our team will collect the following information:
Your child’s name, address, date of birth, school year level and any special instructions for your child (eg. allergies, special needs etc). We will also ask for parent/guardian names, contact phone and email.

All Yorkie Kids leaders and volunteers have appointed in line with our Safe Church policy.

Can I attend if ____________?

For the safety of all people attending our services, we ask that you stay at home if you are sick. Be sure to watch the live stream instead! Please visit the Services page for more information on restrictions.

However, for everything else, the answer is yes absolutely! Everyone is welcome at York Street. As a safe place, every colour, every shape, every personality and people with every kind of story imaginable are welcome here.

What do I wear?
We care about you not what you are wearing…some dress up and some come in casual attire. We invite you to come just as you are. What matters is that you are here.
What happens after the service?
You might like to allow yourself a few extra minutes after the service to have a cuppa and chat. You are a very important person to us! We’d love to meet you and answer any questions you may have. So please let us know it’s your first time here!
Welcome Team

You’ll be greeted by our friendly welcome teams. If you have any questions, they will be more than happy to help. Look for the people wearing the bright teal lanyards.

Our welcome teams will give you a Connect Card on the way into the church. This is our way of getting to know you, and connecting you to our faith community. Connect Cards are collected during the offering space in our services.

Where can I park?

We have easy off-street parking. There is a guest park waiting for you in our car park off York Street. Additional parking is available off Joseph Street at the rear of the building.

I need to talk to someone

If you need to talk to someone after the service, look for a member of the K-Team wearing the teal lanyards. Alternatively, you can a member of Our Team during the week.
