About Silverdale CofC

The Silverdale Church of Christ is located on the Cunningham Highway about 20 minutes from Ipswich between Warrill View and the turn-off to Kalbar. Our chapel is situated on a hill, in a rural community with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. 
It is easily accessible from the highway and we are part of the Scenic Rim Regional Council. 

The church began in 1920 and relatives of those who started the work are presently part of the church family. We were tied closely with the Boonah Church of Christ until 1990 when Silverdale Church called its first full-time pastor. 

Our church has great facilities which are well cared for and maintained. There is a chapel and a hall, which are connected by a covered area and two other separate buildings. The chapel is built on a large parcel of land (approximately 2 hectares) which gives us many options for the future. 

There is one Sunday morning service starting at 9.30am. 
Our worship style is contemporary and we seek to be vibrant and inspiring.​

1) Do the will of God

By living out our faith as we take up the call of Jesus Christ to share the Gospel Message and proclaim that the Kingdom of Heaven is near.

2) Share Christ with our Community

Through care and support of our neighbours and shining the light of Christ through our everyday actions.

3) Cultivate Spiritual Growth

Through relevant messages and worship as we desire to go deeper in our commitment to being available for the Holy Spirit to use.
