Hi! We know coming to a church for the first time can be a little daunting, so here is a little of what to expect at a H3O Gathering.
We meet from 4pm for some (excellent) coffee before our 4:30-5:30pm Gathering. What you will find at H3O is a group of people who enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the Dee Why Surf Club and truly love meeting together. It’s a diverse group of young and not-so-young, Christians and those just curious, coffee drinkers, surfers, business people, kids, teachers and more.
Our meetings vary in format week to week but are characterised by times of prayer, learning, singing, humour, interaction and reflection. We know people learn and experience God differently and so we want our Gatherings to engage people’s head, heart and hands as much as possible.
We value being together and that means that children are part of our Gatherings. Some weeks they will break into another space (supervised and lead by parents and helpers) - but our aim is to start and end our Gathering time together.
We hope you will join us at a H3O gathering as we experience life and faith together as a community on the Northern Beaches.

Jesus was a man who claimed to be God. Think on that for a minute. If that were true, how would it change the way you thought, felt, and lived this life?
Is there more to life than this? Who is Jesus? Why did Jesus die?
At H3O Church we are a community of people who believe that Jesus is the hope for the world and seek to live in light of this so the world may know.
We recognise that each persons journey is unique and that you may have more, or specific questions about Jesus. If this is the case we'd love to hear from you.
Our name H3O, reflects our desire to be people that have an “all of life” faith. This means it’s more than coming to church on a Sunday. Instead it’s about having our head on, heart on and hands on when it comes to connecting with God, His mission and the people and world He has created.
The word community comes from two latin words meaning “together” and “gift”. As a church these ideas are central to our sense of connectedness and community life. H3O is not just another social network. It is a place you can belong and explore matters of life and faith together.
At the heart of our common-unity is our belief that Jesus is the hope for the world. This orients our head, heart and hands as we seek to live an authentic and “all of life” faith in light of this.
To coincide with this, we recognise that God’s desire is that all people across the world may know and experience this hope, love, meaning and purpose through a relationship with him.
Dee Why is the cultural and social hub of the Northern Beaches. Home to the most diverse demographics on the beaches, Dee Why is a beautiful mix of long term locals, expats and seasonal guests.
If restaurants, cafes, sun-baking or surfing is your thing Dee Why is your destination.
Our community is undergoing its biggest changes since surveyor James Meehan first penned the name in 1815. The development of the new town centre and residential blocks will transform the tied exteriors while providing new and exciting community spaces.
There are loads of organised and informal ways to have fun, get connected, grow and serve together.
