This year, we are celebrating 41 years of C3 SYD! From humble beginnings, Pastors Phil and Chris Pringle planted C3 SYD (known as CCC back then!) in 1980 with a passion for Jesus and a desire to see Sydney a city 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. And for us, the local church has grown beyond our wildest dreams to now eight locations for Sydneysiders to call home.

Throughout the past year, Pastors Phil and Chris along with our Church Board and Executive have been prayerfully considering the future of C3 SYD, our local Church. As we step into a new era of C3 SYD, we are pleased to announce that Pastors Alex and Jessen Lee will be taking the role of Lead Pastors of C3 SYD in November 2021.


We are so incredibly thankful for 40 years of leadership with Ps Phil and Chris. So many lives have been impacted by their willingness and sacrifice to build our church and love on the city of Sydney. We’re very excited about the future with Alex and Jessen as our Lead Pastors and recognise they are called by God to this position.  We so LOVE Alex and Jessen and know that they have a big heart for people and a vision for our church and this city. We champion them and look forward to an exciting future as we work together to build C3 SYD.

Pastors Alex & Jessen were officially welcomed in as Lead Pastors of C3 SYD on the 14th November 2021. Watch the video below of our Celebration Sunday Service where we honoured and celebrated Ps Phil & Chris and Ps Alex & Jessen!
