About Us

About Emmanuel Community

We believe that God loved the world so much that he gave His only Son (John 3:16) who became one of us and lived among us (John 1:14). Jesus is the revelation of God's love for all people and the name given Him is "Emmanuel" which means "God with us" (Matthew 1:23).

Emmanuel is a Catholic mission community in the Archdiocese of Brisbane called to be a force for renewal in the Church and the transformation of the world.

As individuals, families and as a whole community we are called to exercise the charisms God has given us and advance the mission to which we’ve been called.

We do this in three practical ways:

We embrace "God with us" by nurturing an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ and worshipping the Lord together as his people.

We live "God with us" by accepting the challenge to love one another and in the daily living out of our covenant community lifestyle.

We proclaim "God is with us" by reaching out in love and service to all, awakening and strengthening faith, hope and love in and for Jesus Christ.
