Wellbeing         Spirituality        Creativity

The Avenue Church of Christ is partnering with the Hartwell Church of Christ to form the HeartWell Community, a Christian community of faith, flowing out of a rich heritage of faith, learning to be open and accepting, diverse and inclusive, broad-minded and compassionate; a place where diversity is affirmed and people of different faith traditions, ages, gender identities, theologies and politics are welcomed and valued.

COVID Lockdown: HeartWell Online 

During the current lockdown restrictions in Melbourne all our regular gatherings will be held online. Sunday gatherings will be broadcast on our YouTube channel. The image below links to last Sunday's gathering. You can find recordings of previous weeks on YouTube  HERE.

Giving Beyond Ourselves

The Heartwell Community is committed to making a difference in the world. One way we do that is by providing financial, material and pastoral support to a very special project: Arising Life Ministries in Zambia.  The Hartwell Church of Christ recently launched the Graeme Blair Memorial Fund for ALMS. You can read more about ALMS, about the Fund, and about how you can share in the support by clicking HERE.

We seek to resource people for life - to nurture the soul, to promote wellbeing and to encourage curiosity.  Two of the ways we do that is through our Blog site (thoughtful articles to invite reflection) and our SoulSpace page (resources to nurture the soul). Check out the resources on offer by clicking on the buttons below:

The Avenue Blog

Articles discussing matters of interest in church and society. Your comment and feedback is very welcome.     Most recent:  Grafted in Love David offers a contemplative reflection based on the image of the vine and the branches in John 15:1-11.
