Beliefs

Anglicanism is one of the expressions of Christian faith. We are people called to worship God in Christ and by the power of the Spirit to build communities of hope, healing and transformation.

As people of faith,
we recognise that there is more to life and death than what meets the eye, and we know that ‘more’, is God.

As Christians,
we recognise in Jesus Christ the fullness of God and the fullness of life.

As Anglican Christians,
we encounter and proclaim Christ through the Anglican tradition.

Grant me, O Lord my God,
a mind to know you,
a heart to seek you,
wisdom to find you,
conduct pleasing to you,
faithful perseverance in waiting for you,
and a hope of finally embracing you. Amen.

Baptist Chaplain: Ps Grant Moore

I moved away from my hometown, Albany W.A. in order to study at Curtin Uni back in 2004. While I was completing my journalism degree, my faith was tested and refined as I met different people who held all sorts of world views. My time at Curtin University was foundational for me maturing in my faith. Now I am back serving the Curtin community with Curtin Christian Union. I am helping students make the most of their opportunities to grow in their faith and share their love for Jesus with their friends while at uni and it is such a great privilege to be a part of that! I’m married to Lauren, have three beautiful kids, a whippet, two chickens and an angry galah.  I am an accredited Baptist pastor who attends Gosnells Baptist Church.

Beliefs

A central part of Catholic life is the celebration of the Sacraments. The Sacraments are special public and communal rituals that the Catholic community celebrates. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church states, ‘the whole liturgical life of the Church revolves around the Eucharistic sacrifice and the Sacraments’ (CCC#1113).

The Catholic Church believes and teaches that the seven Sacraments were instituted by Jesus and given to the community of believers as a sign of the presence and power of God in our lives. That is why the Sacraments make sacred or holy important times and events in our lives

The central Sacrament in Catholic life is the Eucharist or, as it is commonly known, the Mass. The Eucharist is at the heart of parish life, it is the reason the local Catholic community gathers each Sunday. The Eucharist is at the heart of Catholic identity. It is often described as ‘the source and summit of the Christian life’ (CCC # 1324). The Eucharist is the primary way that the Catholic community remembers Jesus and it is the public way we give thanks to God for all the good things we have in our lives. It is also the time that Catholics believe they are nourished and fed by the special presence of Jesus in the consecrated bread and wine. This presence is called a real presence of the body and blood of Christ. The eating and drinking of this special presence of Jesus in the consecrated bread and wine is called Holy Communion.

Events and Services

House Churches

Small groups of students and small groups of staff gather together throughout the week at various times to: study the Bible, share what’s going on in their lives, and pray for each other. You don’t have to be a Christian to come along to a group, they’re places that you can ask questions and explore Christian faith.

Curtin Friends

A casual (mostly) weekly event with simple activities and games. The group exists for students who are looking to connect with others at university, particularly for students from overseas. It’s all about friends, food and life. Due to COVID-19 we’ve stopped doing the food, but you are welcome to bring your own. Everyone is welcome. We meet most Tuesday afternoons during semester on campus for a social hang-out.

Local Church Services

Lifestreams Karawara meets at 4.30pm each Sunday afternoon at a Southcare Hall in Manning (53 Bickley Crescent, Manning). The service runs for approximately an hour, typically including worship (music and singing), communion and a message. The vision of the church is to create a family of dynamic churches transforming people & communities in Christ. The mission of the church is to Build Strong, Healthy and Passionate people living Extraordinary lives for Jesus.

Beliefs

Churches of Christ was born out of a 19th century international movement often referred to as the Restoration Movement. The heart of this movement was to abandon denominationalism and follow the New Testament without creeds and confessions of faith. We rally around this simple plea:

In essentials unity, in non-essentials diversity, and in all things love.

The following characteristics tend to be expressed in the culture, values and practices in Churches of Christ Churches:

  • A concern for Christian Unity
  • A commitment to Evangelism and Mission
  • An emphasis on the centrality of the New Testament
  • A simple Confession of Faith
  • Believers’ Baptism
  • Communion
  • Congregational autonomy
  • Lay Leadership
  • Diversity/Freedom/Liberty

Outreach Support

2020 has been a difficult year for many and the effects of the pandemic will continue into the future. Partner organisations have made some resources available to us to be able to provide food, assist with critical bills and offer access to affordable counselling. Please contact us if you have need of these services.

Beliefs

We believe the primary way God speaks to and changes his people is through his Word, as it is taught and applied to our hearts by his Spirit. This means that in all of our life together, the Bible is central. We focus on teaching it book-by-book, letting God set the agenda for what we learn most of the time. But occasionally we will respond topically to our questions and needs and those of the people around us.

Although all of life is worship (Romans 12:1-2), we gather Sunday by Sunday to corporately worship God. We structure our time together around the central message we proclaim, the gospel. We centre on our rebellion from God; Jesus’ death in our place for forgiveness; his resurrection as the guarantee of ours; our response of turning from sin and trusting in Jesus’ death and resurrection; and the change brought about in the direction of our lives and our relationships with God and each other through these events. These corporate meetings are comprehensible and appropriate for non-Christians and new Christians; clear while not being simplistic.

We gently work together to tell our friends, colleagues and classmates the gospel, in fulfilment of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).

Through meeting one-to-one and in small groups throughout the week, we will help each other be equipped to do all the above things and live out our lives for Jesus day-to-day.

Training leaders is a major focus of ours at Unichurch. Over the last five years, we have had twelve part-time interns working with us.

One result of the gospel is we’re changed to love our neighbours, telling the gospel the most important way of doing this, but there are lots of other ways.

Underpinning all the above is prayer because unless God does the work, we are wasting our me and effort.

International Bible Fellowship: Duvinh Nham

Pastor Duvinh, is married to Robyn and is father to Sophie and Toby.  Duvinh trained at Moore Theological College, and loves the Bible, loves helping others understand the Bible’s message, which is Jesus.

Duvinh became a Christian by God’s mercy and kindness, reading the Bible, coming to see how Jesus is true, he’s real, and he’s the truth:

-the one whom the Old Testament prophets spoke of,

-the one who, like God, could say to the wind and sea: ‘Be still’, and the wind ceased, and there was a great calm’; and

-who, like God, could say to a paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven”, not “Son, in God’s name, you are forgiven’;

-the one, the disciples witnessed crucified by the Romans, and raised again bodily, the one who now continues to rule, as God’s king.

Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.”  Then Pilate said to him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king.

For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world- to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.” (John 18:36-37)

At university, Duvinh, came also to understand from the Bible, that God loved him, so much that he died for him, even when he was rejecting God.  The love of God, which was historically demonstrated, in history, and public for all to see, on a Roman cross, where Jesus was crucified, not for himself, but for sinners: “But God demonstrates his own love for us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)

Duvinh also enjoys time with the family, bushwalks and eating Asian food, so come join us on one of IBF outings, which tend to be walks in the bush or eating out.

Beliefs

Fundamental to International Bible Fellowship is the central truth of the Bible that God has spoken, both by the prophets to Israel, but in these last days, to us, by his Son.

In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways,  but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.  3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.  (Hebrews 1:1-3)

That is, what the Bible is about, is a message, God’s message, and what the message is, is the Son, whom he appointed heir of all things.

Given this, the distinctive of IBF is that our core activity is learning that message, God has spoken!   That is, at IBF, we are not just learning the Bible, but learning God’s message (of the Son) that is in the Bible, as recorded in the Bible, recorded from first page to the last because it’s all the one message of the Son.

So, we study the Bible, chapter by chapter, section by section, not in topics, because our desire is for students to understand not what IBF or any pastor is saying, but what God is saying, what the text is saying, in it’s own context.

Join us!  Pray for us! …For God has spoken in these last days to us by his Son!

Events and Services

Because God has spoken to us by his Son, we meet to listen to and learn that message of the Son, and to pray to talk to that God.

We do this in Bible groups, on campus, throughout the week.

Beliefs

Seventh-day Adventists accept the Bible as the only source of our beliefs. We consider our movement to be the result of the Protestant conviction Sola Scriptura—the Bible as the only standard of faith and practice for Christians.

Seventh-day Adventist beliefs are meant to permeate your whole life. Growing out of scriptures that paint a compelling portrait of God, you are invited to explore, experience and know the One who desires to make us whole.

We believe in Jesus Christ who came to save us all, and fulfill the scriptures promises and one day he will come again to wipe away every tear and heartache, to reunite us with our loved ones again.
