A church passionate about knowing, applying, and proclaiming the gospel in Parramatta
Sovereign Grace Church Sydney is excited to announce our plans of launching a new church plant in Parramatta in September 2019!
We are sending out Riley & Maddie Spring, along with a great team, from our church in Wahroonga to go and plant another gospel preaching, gospel proclaiming, and gospel celebrating church in Parramatta.
We are not attempting anything new, innovative or avant-garde. Instead, we are seeking to start a fresh work based on the old but ever relevant message of the good news of Jesus Christ.
We want to invite you to follow Jesus with us.
Over 8 years ago, Sovereign Grace Church was planted in the north of Sydney by Dave Taylor. Right from the very beginning we had a heart to build a healthy local church, an Antioch, that could raise up, train, and send out called and qualified leaders to start new churches. We were sent and supported by Sovereign Grace Churches, an international denomination that began in the U.S. in the 1980’s and now has over 80 churches in countries all over the world.
Just over 2 years into the church plant Riley and Maddie Spring joined and were soon plugged into the life of our church. Riley had expressed a desire for Pastoral ministry and church planting and so Dave began mentoring Riley to test his calling. After 4 years of being faithful volunteer leaders in the church it became clear that God was preparing Riley to plant a church and for our church to partner with him.
So Sovereign Grace Church Sydney sent Riley and Maddie and their two kids, Evie and Jasper, to the Sovereign Grace Pastors College in Louisville Kentucky in the U.S. for an intensive year of training and development with a view to them returning to plant a church in Parramatta. They arrived back in June 2018 and have begun all the work of preparing for this new opportunity. Going forward, we will be two churches, with one mission.
