I spend most of my time reading at the moment. But, when I get bored, or my eyes get sore, I’ve been playing with statistics and searching online for churches in Melbourne which advertise themselves as international, overseas, or by a specific ethnic identity. Along the way I have discovered Transforming Melbourne. All I know about them is what’s on their website, so you know as much about them as I do now. But what I’ve found really helpful is their church search function. There are three basic search criteria you can use to narrow your search:
- geographical location (either by city, postcode or municipality);
- denomination; and
I am intrigued that ‘ethnicity’ is a search option. I hope it means that I’ve picked up on something particularly worth looking into in the Australian church scene!
