History

Narre Warren Christian Church was founded in 1986 by the Reformed Churches of Dandenong and Doveton as a “street level” outreach Church. The mission of the Church is to provide a safe place and a healing community for all, but especially for those who are doing it tough for whatever reason.

Our Church seeks to be loving, non-judgemental and inclusive.

The Church began meeting at the Narre Warren Community Centre but later moved to their own premises (formerly a Motor Body Repair Shop) in Webb St backing onto the Railway car park.

During the first ten years of its existence NWCC formed a partnership with the (then) City of Berwick and ran two Crisis Accommodation homes. This ministry helped many families and continued until the government decided to remove Crisis Houses from all community groups and reassigned all crisis accommodation to a couple of larger organisations.

Transit was established after consultation with Cornerstone Drop in Centre in Dandenong and the request from Narre Warren Support Organisations for this type of service in the Narre Warren area with volunteers being drawn from a variety of backgrounds.
