Christ's True Light Church, Bendigo East

We are a group of people whom God has put together at Strickland Road where people can come in and feel that it is their second home. Presently, members are from various nationalities – Australian, Malaysian, Mainland Chinese and Singaporean, comprising locals, migrants and international students. Conversational languages among the members are English, Mandarin, Malay and some Chinese dialects, their distinct native language. Though we come from different background and nationality, we are one big family in Christ’s True Light Church because of the love of God through His Son Jesus Christ. We strive to live out the two greatest commandments of God - to love God above all else and to love one another as ourselves. By living this way, we hope to make this place a home away from home. We welcome everyone who is looking for a place to call home.
