Hi and thanks for checking GRLC Chipping Norton out!

We are leading and championing the incredible people of GRLC Chipping Norton and are so humbled to be a part of such an incredible church family.
Ali is a Midwife and Ben is the Site Pastor and together with our girls and our Site Team we are following God’s call to see the people of Chipping Norton and the surrounding suburbs to be loved without strings and invited to join us in following Jesus

A brief history

Georges River Life Church started way back in the 1920’s in a garage in Lugarno so we’ve been a part of the community for several generations. Over this time there have been seasons of change and growth. In 2005 we moved from our old location in Lugarno to the local school then in 2011 started Sunday services at one of our present locations in Stanley St, Peakhurst. In the past decade GRLC has grown considerably in terms of its staff, congregation and the way it serves the wider community. And in March 2020, we became a multi-site church with GRLC Chipping Norton beginning.

Georges River Life Church is a Baptist Church. Tens of thousands of people attend Baptist churches in NSW and ACT and the Baptist Movement of churches is the largest protestant denomination in the world. The Baptist movement in NSW is committed to serving together with a purpose of advancing the gospel of Jesus Christ in word, sign and deed. We have 5 values as Baptist churches. To be Christ Centered, Mission Shaped, Relationally Committed, People Empowering and Partnership Oriented.
We have approximately 500 people in our Peakhurst Site and 70 as we begin in Chipping Norton.
We would love for you to discover Jesus and his purpose for us at GRLC in either site.
