123 years young: Church begins new chapter


Kellyville, New South Wales

One of Australia’s oldest Seventh-day Adventist churches is embarking on a new journey at a different location. 

Members of the 123-year-old Kellyville church in Sydney celebrated their last Sabbath at their Spurway Drive location in late February and have started meeting on the Hills Adventist College campus. 

The new location represents an opportunity for the church and the school to work together more closely. Planning for this process began back in 2004, reported church member Rod Long. The church was only being used one day a week, he said, and its members wanted to find out how they could be more community focused and best use the assets God had given them. 

The church is temporarily meeting on the school campus until a new multi-purpose centre is built.
