Epicentre Church


Epicentre Church is a group of individuals whose Mission is to Embrace People, Embrace Jesus & Empower Leaders. For the simple reason that we believe to make a difference on a global scale, it begins with making a difference in individual hearts.

Our goal is to create a vibrant family of hope filled believers who deeply experience the love and presence of God in their everyday lives.

At the centre of our gatherings, is a pursuit of God’s presence, where our hearts are transformed and launched into their destinies.

Whether you are new to the family or a long-time member, we cannot wait to connect with you.
