  • Common Ground, Maiden Gully Every Sunday at 4.00 pm


Common Ground first met for worship in Maiden Gully on Sunday 19 June 2011 at the Maiden Gully primary school gymnasium under the leadership of the Rev’d Roger Rich. Prior to that a group of ladies in the local community were regularly meeting to pray for a church to be established in Maiden Gully.

Within the first year a very small group had formed which included the families of those who had been praying. In the first year Brendan McDonald came to assist Roger in establishing the new church.

In 2015 the church had outgrown the school and began to meet at the Maiden Gully Community Hall. Various ministries began to emerge and bear fruit. The leadership team was beginning to consolidate and a strong emphasis on allowing the mission of God to inform the ministry and our identity as a church became apparent.

About our worship

It can be quite daunting to step into a church if you haven’t been before or if you have not been for a long time. At our gatherings we do the best we can to make you feel welcome and comfortable.

We usually have some singing, a talk from one of the leaders of the church, time to just have a cuppa and get to know people and occasionally we break into small discussion groups. Afterwards we have some cake and coffee and time to catch up with others. Most people who come along enjoy the experience.

We love kids at Common Ground and we totally get that they have lungs and like to do their own thing! That’s what makes them so special.

Sometimes we pray and there are opportunities to share life and talk about some of the deeper things we’re up to. There are no expectations when you walk through the door and we take people just as they are.
