One Church is a Christian community seeking to explore issues of faith and life in ways that make sense in contemporary Australia. We believe that church should be a place where people find acceptance, encouragement, hope and meaning as they connect with God and each other.
Located in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, One Church is committed to connect, support and deepen the faith of all children and families within our faith community as well as the wider community.

With our youth and young adults integrally connected with children’s ministry through leadership, you will work closely with the Youth and Young Adults Pastor to bring strong collaboration across the whole generations area.
