"...Church of the Living God, the pillar and ground of the truth."
1 Timothy 3:15


We follow the traditional teachings of the doctrine of Christ as taught by the early church. Hebrews 6:1-2, Acts 2:42. We are not affiliated with US church of the same name. The Church of the Living God welcomes you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to join us in seeking to know the true God as we look into His Word, the Holy Bible.

Current Arrangements – Corona Virus Pandemic


From 1 June 2020 we are glad that we can welcome you to attend services in person, as long as we keep government regulations that limit numbers at services and require us to practise social distancing and hygiene. The maximum numbers allowed are 50 in NSW and 20 in Victoria and Queensland.

For enquiries about our Melbourne and Brisbane meetings, and for the Northern Beaches and Western Sydney, please contact us as directed on our “Contact Us” web page.

Arrangements for Hebron, Hurstville as at June 2020

We are glad that we can welcome you to hear the Word of God face to face. We regret that due to the pandemic we are not yet able to accommodate everyone as we normally do, so we ask you please to take careful note of arrangements for youth, worship and gospel meetings.

Conditions of Attending Meetings

At this time, we must remind you:

  • If you are feeling unwell, with fever, a cough or even mild symptoms like a cold, we must ask you to join us on Skype or on your phone. The Health Dept recommends Covid-19 testing even for mild symptoms.
  • On arrival kindly cleanse your hands in the washroom or with hand sanitiser (dispensers on the wall).
  • Leave with us your name and contact details (phone or email). We are required by law to keep this record in a secure place for 28 days.
  • If you have a chronic medical condition or are over 70 you may prefer to continue listening on Skype or by phone.


Please email to make arrangements to listen to church meetings by Skype. We must ask you to limit yourselves to one connection per household please, as there are limited slots available.
