Weekly Gatherings

Sunday mornings
10:30am at Bowden chapel
100 Drayton St Bowden SA

Find out more about what our weekly gathering looks like here.

All Welcome

We fully embrace LGBTIQ+ people into the life,
service and leadership of our community and
believe people of all gender, sexuality and race
are equal in every way.

Accessibility

Please note: the Activate chapel is an equal access venue with wide doorways, sufficient space between chairs and an accessible bathroom. There is a small lip at the entry but wheelchairs and other mobility devices are typically able to move over this adequately.

Work is currently underway to provide physical access to the Welcoming Centre site next door, including an access ramp and handrail for the entry. Until this building is fully accessible, Activate will not be utilising the facility as a community space on Sunday mornings.

About Us

Activate Church is a faith community of activists, modelled on the life of Jesus, empowered by the Spirit, united by a commitment to join with God in the renewal of all things.

We’re a community of people who gather each week at Bowden Chapel. We’re about growing in the Marks of a Disciple and supporting those who are marginalised by looking to Jesus’ example for all areas of life.

Jesus was a refugee?

Posted by admin

Jesus was anyone and everyone who has ever known exclusion, prejudice, abuse and exploitation, Jesus was anyone and everyone who has ever been the victim of injustice, violence, manipulation, fraud or public shame. And that Jesus is God. That is our God.

Always was, Always will be; Good News

Posted by admin
