After 10 years of working in Melbourne’s western suburbs, Northpoint Seventh-day Adventist Church has finally achieved church status. Members and conference officials celebrated this special occasion on Saturday, February 4.
“We praise God for what He is doing in and through Northpoint,” said founding Pastor Loren Pratt, “and pray that the membership will continue to grow and touch the community around them with the love of Jesus.”

During the service, Victorian Conference president, Pastor Wayne Stanley, challenged the congregation to continue the strong evangelistic and community focus that has been a feature of Northpoint. The church assists in the operation of a men’s shed—an initiative that reaches out and supports men in the community. Men’s Shed president, Grant Knox, and Cheryl Hildebrandt, leader of the Tullamarine Community House, expressed their appreciation to members for their help and support.
A feature of the day was the cutting of a celebratory cake, with founding church member, Betty Hyland, Pastor Stanley and Northpoint’s pastors all participating.
