  1. Fifth Sunday Prayer Meeting There will be a combined prayer meeting today at 1:30pm in Room 5/6/7 for the whole church (English, Cantonese and Mandarin). Please make an effort to attend.

  2. Women's meet-ups Would you like to get to know some of the other women at CABC through a regular, casual once-a-month catch-up, locally?

    The first meet-up will be this Thursday, 4th May, at Hornsby (or nearby) at about 11.30am. Please text Terena on 0425 229 338 for further details.

    The next one after that will be on Wednesday, 7 June (followed by Thursday the next month and so on). All ladies are welcome!

  3. General Affairs Our Church has stored some biscuits and snacks in kitchen cupboard for morning and afternoon tea usage before/after Sunday Services. We have noticed the consumption has significantly increased particularly in the last few months. This has put a significant burden on the General Affair's budget and is causing an extra strain for the brothers and sisters who source these items. We would like to appeal to all fellowships, groups and individuals, not to take those items. If you desperately need to use them, we encourage you to replace them within a week. Thank you for your cooperation.

  4. Sunday Lunch Order In order to encourage brothers and sisters to stay behind for fellowship after Sunday Service, the lunch cost of ordering will be reduced to @$6.00, effective 1st May. Please pre-order for the following week, every Sunday.

  5. Gilgandra, Sep/Oct 2017 If you are interested in going this year, please speak to Peter Dart as soon as possible. There will be a meeting in May to determine exactly who is going and set the program.

Who are We

Chinese and Australian Baptist Church - Thornleigh was founded in July 1989. Since 1984, Rev. Joseph Fung responded to God's guidance, and, together with Rev. Burman of Eastwood Baptist Church began to reach out to the Cantonese speaking Chinese migrant community, resulting in the establishment of CABC Thornleigh. All this time the Church has upheld its foundation – the Word of God. The ministry of our church has always centred on the Word of God – our Sunday worship, our all-age Sunday school, our cell groups and fellowship groups all built upon this foundation; but from the beginning, never forgetting the Great Commission. Right from the beginning, CABC-Thornleigh already established a mission fund, supporting local and overseas mission.

Here we see a beautiful picture, the Australian and Chinese pastors and brothers and sisters then, in responding to the gospel need of the community, joined in local mission, establishing the church, spreading the Word of God, and supporting overseas missions. Just as the Lord Jesus, before his ascension, instructed the apostles and said, “…You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8). We thank God for His provision throughout the years, for establishing CABC-Thornleigh this big spiritual family to proclaim Christ and witness the power of His Gospel.
