• Calvary Christian Church

    Calvary Christian Church is one church meeting in multiple locations. We believe that church should be Real Simple and make it our mission to Love God, Care for One Another, and Serve our World.

    The Reason We Exist:

    Calvary exists to help every person – no matter who they are, where they’ve been or what they’ve done – know how much God loves them.

    Our Vision:

    We see a large, influential church – meeting in multiple locations – equipping and empowering increasing numbers of people to live victorious lives through faith in Jesus Christ.

    Our Culture (Or For You Under 35s, “How We Roll”)

    In Matthew 25 Jesus commended the good steward: “Well done good faithful servant”. This five word commendation describes the Kingdom life and the way we typically roll at Calvary.

    • Well = Excellence. We will do the best we can with faith.
    • Done = Persistence. We will do whatever it takes to get done that which God has asked of us.
    • Good = Humility. We commit to keeping a right spirit at all times.
    • Faithful = Faith. We will stay full of faith, no matter the circumstances.
    • Servant = Generosity. We insist that we are called to serve and to refresh others.
  • Orange Sky Laundry

    We have a simple formula; we provide a platform for every day Australians to connect through a regular laundry and shower service. The focus is on creating a safe, positive and supportive environment for people who are too often ignored or who feel disconnected from the community.

    How much washing can you do?

    We have two 10kg washers and dryers in our laundry vans that allow us to complete 40kg of clean washing every hour. Every week around Australia, we do 704 tonnes of washing for our friends on the street.

    Where do you operate?

    Each van has set locations and times in which it operates. We always partner with local service providers in areas with the highest need, and ensure that we set up at locations where our friends feel most comfortable. Check out our locations page for more information.

TTN works to fulfil the Great Commission through ministry.
