Church Life

I'm new here

If you're new at NEAC we'd love to meet you (if we haven't already). Coming along to church for the first time might not feel like an easy thing to do. We want to help you feel welcomed by the first person you meet. We'd also love to share with you some of the things happening at church. If you'd like to know more, speak to anyone of the NEAC ministry staff or share your details with us here.


Please find these resources and links for serving the church and our community at this time.


  Small groups

bible and hands
At NEAC we are committed to creating spaces where we can encourage, experience and express the “one another” life of Christian community outside Sunday services. Each week in Small Groups we hope to do this by talking with each other, praying together and looking at God’s word.

  Summer Events

NEAC Mornings at 10am
From 27 December and throughout January, there will be one NEAC Mornings service at 10am, rather than two services. We are looking forward to being able to fellowship together in this way, during the summer. Church in the Graveyard will continue as usual at 6.30pm.

Summer School
Wondering how to spend your summer evenings? Wondering how you can grow in Christ over the summer period? Sign up for Summer School.

Choose your own adventure between a workshop on Prayer on Wednesday nights and Moore College's 'Promise to Fulfilment ' on Thursday nights. They will start on 13th and 14th of January 2021 and will run for about 4 weeks. 

The Prayer workshop will help you think through prayer in the light of scripture and encourage you in your walk with Christ. 'Promise to Fulfilment'  helps you learn how to read the Bible in light of its place in the single overarching story that binds it together as a whole.

Andrew Errington's Commissioning
Andrew Errington will be commissioned into his new role as Rector of Newtown:Erskineville Anglican Church on Thursday 21 January at 7.30pm at St Stephens. Come and welcome Andrew and his family to NEAC and help us to pray over them. This will also be streamed at neac.online.church.


Our theme for Christmas at NEAC this year is 'A weary world rejoices'; a very appropriate thought for Christmas 2020.

From Monday 7 December, we will be releasing a series of Advent Devotions, reflecting on the lyrics from O Holy Night alongside passages from the Bible. This is series will be a collaboration of several members of our church. Our hope is that this series will help people prepare their hearts for celebrating Jesus' coming, in what has been a tiring year.

To this end, we encourage our regular members to give as they are able to support the growth of God’s kingdom.

Faith and Work

At NEAC we think Jesus gets to our desk Monday morning before we do. He is not just interested in our work, he is Lord over it. If Jesus’ grace changes everything, how does it alter our everyday work stresses? The communication breakdown in our office emails? Our career questions and longings?

The gospel of Jesus Christ reveals the nature of our hearts, our world and God’s kingdom. In light of the gospel our whole vision of work changes. Our prayer is that God would release many people to use the precious gifts and time he has given them to work in Jesus’ name.

Workplace lectures

Twice a year, we run  a lecture  to help us contemplate what it looks like for us to be captivated by Jesus in our working life. 


Citizens is a year-long journey a group of workers takes together to discover how the gospel changes them and their work.


Sermon series

Living the Truth of Christmas

The Book of 1 John

1 John is a pastoral letter written to believers in the midst of confusion created by false teachers. John writes to reassure God’s people about the reality of Jesus Christ and the way of life found in him. John’s first concern is not to knock down the false teachers but to protect his beloved readers from the destructive lies about their Father. 1 John speaks to us of the profound life of love God has summoned us to, to the absolute centrality of Jesus Christ and how we can have fellowship with God because of Jesus’ death and resurrection.

All of this brings us to Christmas. The truth of Christmas is that God has come to have fellowship with us by sending his son and inviting us into the way of life he shares as Trinity: the way of love.

At the end of a tiring year, let us reflect on this immovable comfort and anchor for our souls!
