Who We Are

We are a Merimbula based church with a burning desire to see a Jesus Majority on the Sapphire Coast. We love Jesus, we love being together and we love our community.

We have devoted ourselves to knowing Jesus through His Word – the Bible, through prayer and through service to Him and His people.

We meet during the week in Life Groups to know each other and to pray for each other, and we gather on Sunday afternoons each week to give back to God and to thank Him together as His people.

We believe that everyone is on a journey with God and we would love for you to share your journey with us.

More Than Just Sundays

Sapphire Life Church is more than just meeting on a Sunday. Jesus said that his purpose was to give us a “rich and satisfying life” (John 10:10). So, being part of Sapphire Life means you can make a difference in the community. We have different ministries that will enable you to do just that.
