Bible Study Groups

We would love for you to come along and enjoy growing deeper in God’s Word, as well as getting connected through fellowship as we do life in Christ together.

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explores the basics of the Christian faith. It creates a space where people come and discuss life’s big questions – What am I here for? What’s the purpose of my life? Specifically designed for people who do not describe themselves as a Christian or a regular churchgoer, Alpha has 15 sessions plus an introductory session to the Alpha Weekend and typically runs over 10 weeks.
The Church of the Living God Growth Track is made up of four steps that will help you to connect to the church family. It will also equip you to better understand your unique personal strengths and spiritual gifts; discover and develop your leadership ability, and empower you to use your God-given gifts to make a difference in the lives of others.
Get To Know Our Church
The Church of the Living God (CLG) is a Foursquare Church with a simple goal – to help people connect with God that they may reach their full potential. Its missional purpose is inspired by a God-given dream to enjoin the body of Christ to fulfill the Great Commission. We invite you to see for yourself how exciting church can be when the focus is simple, and people are free to seek God with passion.
CLG was first an outreach of the Filipino Christian Fellowship (FCF) in the early 1990s. The influx of converts and the continued growth that followed led the outreach to move to more spacious meeting places in Ryde, Parramatta and Dundas area. It was chartered as a Foursquare Church on 8th February 1998. The founding pastors, Pastors Frank and Josie Yap, now Pastors Emeritus, retired from the ministry in July 2012. On 8th July 2012, Ps Imelda Mesa, an ordained minister of the Foursquare Church Australia, with husband Allan Mesa, assumed the senior leadership of the church.
In 2016, CLG planted a church in Manila. The future looks so good. We see a church that exalts nothing but the wonderful deeds of the Living God, with signs and wonders happening in the life of those who trust and believe the God of the living.
But like all God’s plans, the best is yet to come, and we would like to invite you to come along, join your faith with ours and be a part of what God is doing through the Church of the Living God! We are excited to see the hand of God perform in your life those which are humanly impossible.
