Like all Christians, members of the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church (PBCC) live normal, fulfilling lives, but unlike others, we are not always well understood (you can have a read of commonly asked questions here).

Below is a compilation of stories from both members of the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church and everyday Australians who work in our schools, businesses and charities.

We are sharing our stories to help demystify some of the things about our community and to help Australians understand that Together, we are Brethren.


Jess Smith is a teacher at OneSchool Global in Oatlands. Jess talks about the innovation and technology used in schools and the positive experience of working with the community.


John Anderson is a small business owner, employing 56 staff. He is married with four kids and contributes to the Australian economy, and also happens to be a member of our Church.


Cheryl Reddel is a working single mother and like most Australians has a mortgage. Cheryl left the church at a young age but re-joined late on in life. Cheryl has two adult children.


Janelle is a stay-at-home mum with three school aged children. Like all mums Janelle just wants the best for her kids and for them to do well at school.
