Together, we are Brethren

Like all Christians, members of the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church (PBCC) are empowered by the Holy Bible, but unlike others we are not always well understood.

We’ve built this website to tell people about our beliefs and values, our fellowship, and the many ways we engage with our local and global communities.

We want to address some of the myths that exist about us, but which are not true. For example, we don’t recruit members to our Church. Most, but not all, of our members are born into our Church.

Many members of our Church own and manage their family businesses. They pay their taxes, employ thousands of professionals and other employees, and contribute to the communities in which they live and work.

We use the latest technology in our schools where our children are educated.

Members volunteer their time to run our international charity, The Rapid Relief Team which provides food and drink to emergency services in times of disaster, the homeless, youth and those with disability. This is free of charge and paid for by Community members.

We are a Church built on values that all Australians embrace – family, giving back and helping those who are less fortunate.

We encourage you to have a look around our website. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
