** FINAL COST OF EASEMENT COURT COSTS BY Citilife Christian Outreach Centre Toowoomba AGAINST MASTERS HARDWARE CITED AT $400,000 - $450,000. About 1998 Masters Hardware wanted to take away a strip of land from Citilife Christian Outreach Centre Toowoomba for road and piping. From Hume to Ruthven St. COC took on the case in the environment Court and basically won. (Because of the type of court it was they only got back $40,000.) The council paid for the road Hume St to Ruthven St between Masters and church. (May 2014)
** CHURCH SPLIT NO LONGER. Joe Casey and Pat Casey were Pastors at Citilife Christian Outreach Centre Toowoomba and allegedly were stood down and asked to leave the church. They don’t really claim they took people but people did think it was unfair to ask them to leave the church. So they got a month by month lease Prescott St & James St. Apparently, Good Life Church was up to 70 people at first then shifted around and settled to 30 - 40 people. But by late 2013 Ken Wootin & Joe Casey talked and the Good Life Church returned BACK to Citilife Christian Outreach Centre Toowoomba.

TOOWOOMBA LUTHERAN SERMONS WENT NATIONAL. "Lutheran Media" gave "Good Shepherd Lutheran" $20,000 for 2 video cameras and specialised equipment & each week CD and DVD are sent to Adelaide. See for full story http://www.churchdiscover.com/lul

PASTOR RICHARD HARRIS HAD OPENED NEW MELBOURNE CHURCH. Shifted in Oct 2013. It is a non - denominational church and not associated with Anglican church of Australia.

TOOWOOMBA CHURCHES MOVE INTO SECOND PHASE OF CHILD PROTECTION. In a watershed moment in mid 2013 , stringent child protection policies have been pushed into place in preparation for 2014 government new rules that go way past Blue Cards. Incident reports need to be filled out by every church leader for every child in which something happens or in which something is merely suspected of occurring. From not just sexual suspected areas but physical, verbal tirades, medicines given. From areas on the church property and outside the church to even homes (For example,. youth leaders often have meetings at their house) and even cars (i.e. a leader might have to drive a child home.)
The government of Australia for 2014 began "Child and Youth Risk Management Strategy" and thus a booklet used called "Child Protection Policy Procedures". These are yearly legal requirements to have group training meetings. Any incident that happens, a report needs to be filled out and filed by the "religious practitioner". Events include combined church events like camps. Also, Police may be called if a person refuses to leave building. (The charge is "public nuisance".) Policy covers things like verbal , physical and even implied sexual abuse, accidental touching. Apparently, leader can’t promise to keep anything a secret. (Catholic priests in confession may be exempt in Australia.) Note: This policy is post blue card era where only a police check was needed. (The government does not tell anyone to renew blue cards yearly. The onus falls on the individual. ) In this 2014 policy , in areas of suspected child abuse resulting in fluids "Clothes must be collected for the police" and "Also if an incident happens at home." No alcohol or medication to be given to any child. If a child needs medical attention, it must be given.

CHURCH ABOUT TO BE BOUGHT BY MUSLIMS. The ex Scotts Uniting church at Stephen and 217 West St might be turned into a Muslim Mosque. A minaret will be added to each mosque in Toowoomba over the decades which broadcastes a call to prayer 5 times per day. (This information was confirmed months later by secular press in these stories for further research.) http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-05-30/mosque-plans-consider-existing-churches/4722384?&section=news and http://www.thechronicle.com.au/news/plans-to-establish-a-mosque-in-toowoomba-to-cater-/1883684/ and http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/queensland/mosque-plans-neighbour-concerned-leaders-supportive-20130530-2ndi8.html

Our Guesstimate:
$213,400 to $271,400

SOME COMMENTS ABOUT WEBSITE in 2013. "My son and his wife moved to Brisbane and when they came back they looked on your site and they decided their next church from your website." And another man said "I found this church through your website and now come here all the time because of the unique beliefe structure I have."

FIFTH CLOSED BRETHREN CHURCH was built brand new in Hume St in 2012. (Between Spring and Nelson Sts.) In 10 years have doubled their numbers.

TOOWOOMBA CITY CHURCH flooded Jan 2013 wetting new carpet from floods Jan 2011. Water bubbled up through sewer drains on Neil St.

* VISION church shifted from Neil St to Jones St Railway yard.

Richard Harris last sermon was 7 April 2013.
Richard Harris began his first parish late in 1997 at "Beverley" and was Rector for 5 years. Shifting across country, Richard and wife and 4 kids under age 11 arrived Brisbane in May 1998 to take positon as priest at St Bart's Toowoomba for 14.5 years from September 1998 till 7 April 2013. Richard had the first stage of the brand new church built but left the 2nd stage (about 1000 people size) to the next priest to finish. Announcing his resignation 27 Jan 2013 Richard was not sure what his next ministry would be but hinted it might be "different".

UPDATED 2014

 

 

 

 

SUMMARY QUICK GLANCE OF FINDINGS OF WEBSITE.

 

25% of Toowoomba people go to church regularly (minimum once a month). (25,000 people)

15% of Toowoomba people go to church every weekend (minimum). (15,000 people)

7% of the 15% are "born again". (7,000 people)

3 1/2 % of those "born again" church goers go to a "speaking in tongues" or Pentecostal church. (3,500 people)

(Many are shocked when I verbally say that I have personally counted 15,000 + people consistently travelling to church every weekend, however, traditional researchers like the "Australian Bureau of Statistics" have the same general findings. The easy way to remember is that 15% of Toowoomba go to church each weekend, half are born again and half of those are Pentecostal)

ENTER WEB SITE HERE for non specific Toowoomba church areas. YOUR NOW AT THE HOME PAGE. REGARDING DISCOVERCHURCH-1. It measures exactly how many people are going to church.2. It is very likely the largest and most accurate count of all church going people in one location.3. It's very interesting to see which denominations are growing. 4. It gives a very thorough understanding of the political/ social church scene. 5. It explains in fascinating detail WHY churches believe the way they do.
REASONS for this web site. 1. Non-Church going people need this web site as it contains great information as to why churches work the way they do. 2. Others need this web site as it has much information on what other churches are doing and what they believe. 3. Church goers around the world need this as it shows a lot about the church in general. 4. Church going people will find it particularly useful as it has great information on denominations, beliefs and cults.5. Church going people need this as it's the only complete directory of church starting times, has great information on how churches operate and believe. 6. Evangelical Church goers need this web site as you can invite people to church by sending them this uniquely independent information. (See FAQ's Community.)7. Christians who do not believe that church buildings and money orientated churches are the answer will find this site very informative as this site is not biased towards churches being the answer. See- http://groups.yahoo.com/group/discoverchurch/
FAQ's IN BRIEF.
IS THIS A SMALL WEB SITE?
This web site was written from 1999 to 2008, is 100,000 words long, it's based on fact not fiction and it's for anyone to see what churches are doing.
IS THIS ENTIRELY YOUR OWN PERSONAL WORK?
Yes, I did collect and collate and write ALL OF THIS information myself. None of the information collected here is taken from ANY other web site or ANY book or ANY other source other than myself.
WHO ARE YOU?
I try do what the Bible says. I am not joined to any denomination.
WHAT DID YOU DO?
I personally and independently went to every service of every church in a large western city and compiled a report of each service.
WHY DID YOU DO THIS?
I already knew more than most people about different churches and were getting regular requests for information by parishioners wanting to know about churches.
WHY THE NEED FOR ARE ALL THOSE NUMBERS?
This report are generally all facts in the same way a newspaper should be without a journalists opinions. It's essentially a statistical research project but if you can get passed only the cold look of this report, you should be able to see that the web site HAS INCREDIBLY RELEVANT AND PERTINENT CHRISTIAN INFORMATION SUITABLE TO ANY PERSON IN THE WORLD. The reason I wrote it this specific way is for usefulness to a broad cross section of users. It would be impossible to re-write this web site for every user group. Like Non-church goers to parishioners etc..
DO YOU RECOMMEND ALL PEOPLE FIRST READ THE INFORMATION WITH THREE ASTERISKS (***) IN FRONT OF THEM?
Yes. First read the "Tour." Then read the *** 3 asterisk information as THIS IS THE ABSOLUTE CREAM of the web site. If your impressed, read the two asterisk information. Depending on who you are, if you find that information very relevant, read the one asterisk information. Of course, it's NOT RECOMMENDED you try to read the entire 100,000 words of this web site.
WHY SHOULD I READ INFORMATION ABOUT OTHER CHURCHES?
Because every other church tends to affect the whole church scene which affects the community.
IS THIS EXPOSING PROBLEMS IN WHICH PEOPLE NEED TO DISCUSS?
Absolutely. The Rev William H Willimon, a Duke University chaplain, has written that even gossip can have positive effects such as exposing problems people need to discuss.
IS THIS GOSSIP?
No. It's all fact based. Basically, the information is not at all meant to be opinion biased either for the church or against the church. However, it should be said that most clergy and church leaders do NOT approve of this information! This web site is written expressly for the PEOPLE. For example, there is an organisation which helps the people who rent houses. They don't help the real estate agents. So, of course, Church leaders do not support this site. This web site is only for the PEOPLE.
BUT I FEEL INTIMADATED BY ALL OF THESE CHURCHES.
Not one person should or ever needs to feel INTIMIDATED BY CHURCHES!!!! (When you think about it, churches are intimidating places to enter and be a part of! There are countless unwritten rules! And if your not VERY familiar with how churches operate, you may have had one bad experience and it will put you off church for life! My hope is that you get a good understanding of how churches operate. Keep in mind that there is a certain WAY that they operate.
SO, THE WAY THIS WEBSITE IS CREATED IS THERE IS A REPORT OF NOT ONLY EVERY CHURCH BUT EVERY SERVICE TIME AS WELL? Correct, each report starts with the time the service starts. WHY SHOULD I READ ABOUT THESE "EACH AND EVERY INDIVIDUAL" SERVICES?
It is most important to at least read all of the asterisk information here as it all "VERBALLY INTER-CONNECTS". For example, only one report explains what the "signs are of the Toronto blessing" or what "why churches believe in extreme Calvinism". So, if you only read one service in each church you will find you won't understand the "THE CONDITION OF THE CHURCH" as everything is explained only once. For example, if a church has 4 church services you will need to READ ALL REPORTS as basically NONE of the information is REPEATED other than in the 18 criteria each church is measured in.
IS THIS THE PURPOSE OF THE WEB SITE? TO MEASURE THE CONDITION OF THE CHURCH IN GENERAL? Answer: Yes.WHAT ARE THE AREAS YOU MOSTLY MEASURED IN? (Numbers 1 to 18.)
1. NUMBER OF PEOPLE: .
2. NUMBER OF CHAIRS: .
3. Type of person: .

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THESE AREAS? (The UPPERCASE words.)
1. Number of people: .
THIS IS THE ACTUAL AMOUNT OF PEOPLE WHOM I PHYSICALLY COUNTED WHO WERE SEATED IN THE CHURCH ON AVERAGE.
2. Number of chairs: .
THIS IS THE AMOUNT OF CHAIRS I PHYSICALLY COUNTED.
3. Type of person: .
OFTEN CHURCHES CONTAIN SIMILAR TYPES OF PEOPLE.
4. Socio-Economic Status: .
OFTEN THE CHURCHES CAN BE PROFESSIONAL TYPES OR BLUE COLLAR WORKERS OR RARELY, WELFARE RECIPIENTS.
5. Amount of kids: .
I PHYSICALLY COUNTED EACH CHILD AGED 0 TO 18 AS OFTEN FAMILIES LOOK FOR FAMILY ORIENTATED CHURCHES.
6. Ages of people: .
SOMETIMES THE CHURCH MIGHT ONLY HAVE PEOPLE AGED OVER 60 OR THERE MIGHT BE A MIX OF ALL AGES.
7. % of men.
THE PERCENTAGE OF MEN IN THE CHURCH. CHILDREN WERE NOT INCLUDED AS PART OF THE COUNT.
8. Weekly offering published: .
OFTEN CHURCHES PUBLISH THEIR OFFERINGS OR INCOME.
9. Lateness of people getting to church: .
THIS ISN'T A BAD OR GOOD THING IN ITSELF. JUDGE THIS AREA FOR YOURSELF.
10. Any other interesting information: .
THIS IS OFTEN THE MOST INTERESTING AREA OF THE REPORT AND IS DIVERSE.
11. Time there AND date of visit: .
IF THERE IS A DATE HERE, IT MEANS I PHYSICALLY ATTENDED THE SERVICE MYSELF. IF BY CHANCE I DIDN'T ATTEND I WILL EXPLAIN HERE WHY IT'S WORTH MENTIONING. THE DATE OF THE REPORT IS ONLY GOOD FOR THAT DAY. OFTEN PASTOR'S NAMES CHANGE.
12. Length of service: .
THIS CAN BE ANYTHING FROM 25 MINUTES TO 4 1/2 HOURS.
13. This and other service times: .
PLEASE NOTE: THE FIRST TIME GIVEN HERE IS REPEATED ON THE TOP LEFT CORNER OF THE REPORT. AS THIS WAS WHEN THE SERVICE STARTED AS PER DATE OF REPORT. THE SUBSEQUENT TIMES ARE OTHER TIMES OF SERVICES. NOTICE THOSE REPORTS ARE LISTED DIRECTLY BELOW OR ABOVE THE ONE YOU ARE READING.
14. Preacher: .
THERE ARE VARIOUS NAMES. "Ps" IS SHORT FOR "PASTOR". "Fr" IS SHORT FOR "FATHER." "Snr Ps" is for "Senior Pastor." THIS PERSON IS THE PERSON WHO PREACHED, AT THAT PARTICULAR SERVICE. IF THEY ARE NOT THE PASTOR THEN I MENTION THE PASTOR'S NAME AS WELL.
15. Feeling of building: .
OFTEN THE BUILDING CAN BE ANYTHING FROM HAVING COLD STEEL OLD CHAIRS TO 6 MILLION DOLLAR BUILDINGS. BUT ALSO THERE CAN BE A "COLD MILITANT" FEELING OR THERE CAN BE A WARM FEELING.
16. Estimate style of belief: . EACH CHURCH HAS A DEFINITE STYLE OF BELIEF! IT'S POSSIBLE TO GET A FULLY CHARISMATIC ANGLICAN CHURCH IN YOUR CITY AS WELL AS A "HIGH" OR "VERY CATHOLIC" ANGLICAN CHURCH IN THE NEXT SUBURB.
17. Dress code so as not to stand out: .
I AM NOT IN ANYWAY IMPLYING THIS IS THE WAY YOU "SHOULD" DRESS IF YOU GO THERE. YOU CAN GO TO ANY CHURCH IN ANY DRESS. THIS TAKES SOME OF THE WORRY IF YOU DO GO TO A CHURCH YOU DO NOT KNOW.
18. How to get there:
TIPS ON HOW TO GET THERE AND WHERE TO PARK.
SEE FAQ's FOR A FURTHER EXPLANATION in "Frequently Asked Questions". **HOW CAN I FIND WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR? Because it's difficult to scan with your eyes 100,000 words IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU USE YOUR COMPUTER TO FIND WHAT SPECIFICALLY YOUR LOOKING FOR. (FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOUR ASIAN OR PAPUAN AND YOU WANT TO FIND SOME CHURCHES WITH SIMILAR FOLK IN. Or if you want to find a service which starts at a particular time. Or if a Pastor's name is here. Or if you want a church which has a free lunch.)USE GOOGLE AND ADD WORD "discoverchurch" TO FIND ANYTHING. INSTEAD OF USING INTERNAL SEARCH ENGINE - SIMPLY ADD THE WORD "discoverchurch" plus any other term such as the name of the church the street the church is on i.e. "Spring St". This mostly finds what your looking for. THIS IS A VERY POWERFUL TOOL and can be used in such manner of ways-
Enter part of your churches name to find all references of your church in other pages. i.e. Use only "Spring St" instead of only "AOG".Enter any Pastor's name to find out all references to that Pastor. See "Find" for many more uses.

IT IS AN INTERNET DIRECTORY OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH INSPIRED FROM WRITINGS OF JESUS CHRIST IN THE HOLY BIBLE COVERING A CRITICAL LOOK OR CENSUS OF THE RELIGIOUS AND THE IRRELIGIOUS INCLUDING STORIES ABOUT THE VERY BAD AND VERY GOOD USA INFLUENCE OF CHURCH LED CHRISTIANITY IN THE WEST INCLUDING THE CATHOLIC, ANGLICAN, Uniting (UCA), Assemblies of God (AOG), Lutheran (LCA), Presbyterian, Brethren, Abundant Life Fellowship (ALF), Baptists (BUQ), Independent Baptist, Salvation Army, Seventh-day Adventist, Church of Christ (COCQ), Independent Churches of Christ, Christian Outreach Centre, Apostolic, New Apostolic, Wesleyan Methodist and diverse independent Charismatic or Pentecostal churches. Also included were arguably Christian cults such as THE MAGNIFICAT MEAL MOVEMENT (MMM), COONEYITES, BIBLE TRUTH FELLOWSHIP ETC... But did not include churches which, roughly speaking, does not have the bible as it’s chief source of authority such as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints (The Mormons) or the Jehovah’s Witnesses. NOT ONLY SEEN AS A TOOWOOMBA CHURCH DIRECTORY, POST CODE 4350, IN THE DARLING DOWNS, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA. COVERING SUBURBS IN BRISBANE, THE SUNSHINE COAST AND THE GOLD COAST, QLD. People in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth will also be able to tell what a church is like without having to go to it as all denominations are the same throughout Australia.

    This is a completely Christian web site, based solely on the bible with little or non- denominational biases or criticism. It is an independent view and critical and exhaustive look at the whole Christian church using one town as an example of all Christian belief contained within a religious internet directory. This Christ church directory does discuss much of the religious church building including location, design, look, appeal and atmosphere. The focus of this guide of churches in various denominations is to uncover statistics to do with the biggest church directory of any one city over 100,000 in population which has been done by one person, Timmy Hart. Including how many people are going to church in this largest count of church going people. It covers the political and social infrastructure on WHY churches believe in this large city, it is a report of the CONDITION OF THE CHURCH and its religion and includes NUMBERS OF PEOPLE, even in Christian Cults, Magnificat Meal Movement. Bible Truth Fellowship, Cooneyites. It is written specifically for the world to see the data of the condition of the church which seems to be allegedly based on the bible. Or is it? You vote and decide. Also, this is an involuntary census of churches. None were asked to participate which means the site is not incomplete in anyway. (Few were ever told but the cults frown upon being listed, as would be expected, alternatively, some successful churches were proud to be listed and asked for a link to and from their own web sites.) This site is written by Timothy Hart FREE from any denominational biases. Thus, churches typically included every Christian church in the city some of which were the Catholics, Anglicans, Uniting (UCA), Assemblies of God (AOG), Lutheran (LCA), diverse independent Charismatic or Pentecostal churches, Presbyterian, Brethren, Abundant Life Fellowship (ALF), Baptists (BUQ), Independent Baptist, Salvation Army, Seventh-day Adventist, Church of Christ (COCQ), Independent Churches of Christ, Christian Outreach Centre, Apostolic, New Apostolic, Wesleyan Methodist. But Timy Hart from http://www.zoominfo.com/z/TimyHart  did not include churches which, roughly speaking, does not have the bible as it’s chief source of authority such as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints (The Mormons) or the Jehovah’s Witnesses. Estimates of numbers given. Not just a Toowoomba church directory "Discover Church", done by Tim Hart, the post code is 4350 for Twmba, in the Darling Downs, Queensland, Australia. But also covers unusual churches on suburbs of the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and in Brisbane, Qld.
