COVID19 UPDATE: We will be returning to physical gathering from Sunday 14th June operating in a COVID-SAFE environment. Anyone who is unwell must please remain at home. The livestream will still be available in the Facebook group. Click here to join the FB group. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information, questions or concerns.
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.
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.
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.
Connect with Us
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.
The Good News, the gospel of Jesus, was that the Kingdom of God was here, not an empire or a nation state with borders and weapons, but an experience of the sacred, a sacred world, already around us, among us, planted like seeds, growing like trees...
Activate Church celebrated its 10 year milestone in 2019, looking back at the many and varying ways God has been at work in and through this community.
