Our Story

Our Story

C3 Church opened its doors on Long Island in the winter of 1989 – the first C3 Church in North America. Former Senior Pastors Mark and Bernadette Kelsey came to America from Oxford Falls, Australia, home of C3 Church Global, a global movement of approximately 200 churches. Under the leadership of Mark and Bernie, C3 Church grew rapidly with a membership that extended well beyond the local community.

Music

Music

Since the beginning of C3, music has helped define our church – and drawn hundreds of people through our doors. On the music team, you’ll find believers of all ages and backgrounds, including professional musicians. You’ll hear songs composed by these musicians, and from many other churches and musicians worldwide.

Our Movement

Our Movement

In 1980 a young couple from New Zealand arrived in Sydney, Australia with their family and a vision to start a church. Ps. Phil and Chris Pringle began what would one day become C3 Church on Easter Sunday of that year. There were 12 people at that first service. Four years later, the church had grown to more than 500 members!

Phil Pringle and his wife, Chris, arrived in Sydney in 1980 with their children and a few close friends. Their vision was to start a church on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. From humble beginnings the church rapidly grew to more than 400 members in four years. Today, the church exists as C3 Church Sydney – a thriving congregation of more than 5,000 members across three campuses, along with a ministry training college and a school for Kindergarten through year 12.
