Our vision is Jesus and our mission is to love God and love people

C3 Thirroul is all about discovering Jesus in a community of people who all have unique stories, challenges and experiences but share a desire to do the journey together. We believe that The Gospel is for everyone, regardless of background, upbringing or church ‘experience’, the real message of Jesus is one of relentless grace, unconditional love & authentic community.

C3 Church Thirroul, that began on the 15th March 1987, became home for Brendan & Kristy in 1994 when they individually started attending the church as teenagers & that’s where they met. A few years on and the Elliott’s married in 2002 & now have 3 beautiful girls.

In 2014 the Elliott’s became the Lead Pastors & consider it an absolute privilege, & a lot of fun, to do life alongside our passionate team here at C3 Thirroul to love and serve the community in the Northern Suburbs of Wollongong.
