here for you.


The centre of who we are and what we do is faith, hope and love. It’s super simple… We have faith in a God who is close to us, always. We have hope that no matter how messed up things get, our God will work everything out for good. And we have a love that comes from God, enabling us to love each other as a community.

Our goal is to support people from all walks of life to grow deeper in their relationship with God. Our services are Bible-based and Holy Spirit empowered with dynamic messages and powerful worship. 

We hope that you will find life, community and friendship at your local C3. We meet every day of the week at Church services, dinner parties, connect groups, prayer meetings, life courses and outreaches across Sydney.

"My great love is the local church. I believe she is the hope of our world today."
–Phil Pringle

Our Story

In 1980, Phil and Chris Pringle moved from New Zealand to Sydney to start a Church with a passion for Jesus and a desire to see this world won for Christ. Starting from scratch, just 12 people attended the very first service on Easter Sunday at Dee Why Surf Club, but with that service, C3 Church was birthed.

Phil and Chris had a vision of creating a contemporary church with vibrant music and relevant messages. This resonated with people and a crowd of people that hadn’t felt connected to Church started attending. Week by week, the altar call would be filled with people wanting to meet and experience Christ. The vision was growing.

After expanding into a Brookvale warehouse, Phil and Chris sent much-loved friends and like-minded Church builders out to plant Churches around the country and around the world, beginning the C3 Global movement.

In 1990, a patch of paddocks was transformed into the state-of-the-art venue that now exists at Oxford Falls. Each weekend it now hosts thousands of people in kids, youth and adult services. Under the leadership of Ps Phil and Chris further locations have been established at Silverwater, Rozelle, Parramatta, Avalon, Manly, Mosman and Wahroonga, working together to see Sydney, a city for Christ.



Phil and Chris Pringle are the founders of the C3 Global movement. They are parents to Rebekah, Daniel and Joseph and grandparents to Finn, Sonny, Rooney Bea and Goldie Jean.

Ps Phil is passionate about building faith-filled, anointed churches that are motivated to reach the lost and make disciples. His leadership empowers local churches to thrive in their community through functioning in the power of the Holy Spirit and feeding on the Word of God.

Mama Chris, as she is affectionately known, brings life, revelation, healing and joy. She leads the Everywoman ministry at C3 Church and champions women everywhere to live in 'full flight.' Everyone who experiences her ministry will find themselves inspired, encouraged and changed.
