Chatswood Church of Christ ('CCOC') is a community of hope, compassion and belonging, and seeks to engage and serve the community as the heart and hands of Christ.
We embrace the future and live the moment inspired, encouraged, empowered and strengthened by the living God.
The kingdom of heaven starts now. We believe that the heart, mind, soul and spirit of every person can be stirred by the Word of God and inspired by the Holy Spirit to embrace the fullness of life that Christ gifted us. When our spirits come alive, we connect with God and touch eternity.
Our sense of community and connectedness is motivated by God's love for all. We value and respect that each person is made in the image of God and that our dignity and worth is sacred.

Justice of the Peace
After 25 years in the professional and corporate world as a chartered accountant with companies like Dymocks, Starbucks and Compass Group, God supernaturally called me to serve as a spiritual mentor and coach to the second gener-Asians, discipling them to disciple next gen ABCs through the transitions of life. With Lay Huan and City to City Australia’s training and support we planted a church of Uni and high school students in Chatswood in 2015 with the God-sized DNA of making disciples who make disciples, that plant churches that plant churches, that transform lives, renew cities and heal the world. God continues to surprise us as He expands our ministry by joining Chatswood Church of Christ to train and equip the next generations.
We both have a passion for travel to experience God’s natural and man-made creations, photography and food.
