For well over 100 years, God has led our church on an exciting faith journey. It began with a handful of faith-filled Christians living in and around Blackburn who followed the call of God to take the bold step of establishing a church. It has continued as consecutive generations have answered God's call to take The Next Step, whether big or small.
This Spirit-led journey continues today. We have seen God's hand move in amazing ways as we have responded to his call and take some significant steps of faith.
In 2005, the Blackburn Church of Christ (est. 1904) and the Box Hill Church of Christ (est. 1910) made the historic decision to become One Community Church. The faith journeys and resources of two great churches combined to establish a new identity with renewed energy to see the Good News of Jesus Christ impact the City of Whitehorse and beyond.
In 2008, we opened our new facilities - the result of some amazing steps of faith on the part of the leadership and many members of our church.
Since that time, we have witnessed significant growth and impact locally and overseas. Our new facilities have enabled us to develop ministries we could not have contemplated just 10 years ago.
God has honoured our steps of faith, just as He honoured the steps of those who came before us. We should not be surprised! God always honours the faith of His people. Just as He has in the past, so He will in the future.
The next step has began in 2013 and we are thrilled to be opening this new facility on Sunday March 20, 2016.
- Growing our Children's and Youth Ministry spaces including a new multi-purpose room
- Creating a large centralised lounge and Community 'Hub'
- A new smaller chapel

We are thrilled to be preparing for opening in just over one weeks time. We believe some amazing moments of ministry will take place in these spaces in the years to come and we look forward to sharing that together. To God be the glory.
We will be sharing photos from our opening on March 20 here shortly.
