At  DIVERGENT CHURCH we love the word, we love people and most of all we LOVE GOD with all our hearts, souls, strength, and mind.'

Where ever you are on your journey we believe DIVERGENT CHURCH is a safe place to experience the radical love and purposes of God. 


Food/ Coffee

Community is our heart and nature, even 'at church' we love to hang out. Our services are structured but casual with great food and coffee and time to connect. We believe in the significance of community and food helps (don’t worry there is also healthy stuff in their as well).



Our gatherings tend towards a full band environment and are lively and passionate, though we do love more acoustic vibe as well and so that can happen at times.

Either way, we love worshipping God through music as it expresses the soul. 




Josh (our Senior Leader / Pastor) is our primary preacher/teacher and has a style that is relational and real. He is enthused about the Bible and what God wants for the lives of his people. Josh is presently preaching through the Books of Luke and Acts (with occassional exceptions)

Additionally, we have a team that preaches around DIVERGENT CHURCH that preach regularly, bring different gifts, life experience and style 

At DIVERGENT CHURCH, we believe in the word spoken both with relevance and conviction, never compromising the counsel of God. It is the word that is the foundation of everything we do in life. 

Sermons at Divergent Church Canberra City operate under a number of different methodologies from Topical to Book series. We do not hold any methodology to be sacred, the word itself preached with clarity, in its context and with conviction is our heart and intent.


Team Leadership


We have great Senior leaders in Pastor Josh and Angela Reading but as a Church we also wholeheartedly operate with a wider Pastoral Leadership team that serves our gatherings and church as a whole. In each gathering are specific Pastoral Leaders that care for and lead that gathering. 



Through the week


You can also connect with crew at DIVERGENT CHURCH through the week in different small groups (Life Communities) around the city. Wherever people love to be is where we love to meet - Cafés, Work, Uni. If you are interested give us a buzz or ask at Church.
