C3 Global

our founders

Ps. Phil and Chris Pringle are the founders of the C3 Church Global movement. Ever the brave pioneers, they set out from New Zealand in 1980 with a dream of starting a contemporary, relevant, and anointed church. They are passionate about building faith filled, anointed churches that are motivated to reach the lost and make disciples.

who we are

C3 Church Global is an international movement of churches: Christ-centred, Spirit-powered and connect-driven. We want people to know Jesus in a fresh, personal way; to have a real-time connection with God. We are a hospitable people – generous and fun and full of life – and we are committed to healthy and growing churches around the world. As an international family, our members can walk into any of our C3 Churches and know they’re home.

where we've come from

With a passion for Jesus and desire to see this world won for Christ, Phil and Chris Pringle came to Sydney in 1980 to start a church. With just 12 people attending an Easter service, Christian Centre Northside (and the C3 Church movement as we now know it) was begun. This church grew to over 400 members in 4 years and soon began planting within Sydney and beyond.

where we're going

With over 500 churches in 64 countries, we have a dream of seeing 1 million worshippers in C3 congregations every weekend around the globe. The C3 of the future will be even more vibrant, diverse and energetic than it is now. As we look to the future, we’re excited about all that God is doing and all that he will do.
