About us

Crossroads has been around for around 20 years. We started as a Bible study full of uni-aged people who didn’t fit the usual church stereotypes

We wanted to read the Bible on its own terms, live in response and let go of whatever else cluttered the message. Over time we planted as a church, saw people believe, started international ministries, sent people away to college, got married, had kids, and grew in faith through good and tough times.

These days, we run a 4pm and 6pm service, there’s a lot of young families and a broader range of ages. We’re keen to meet you if you’re game to come along!

Values & mission

Values & mission

We love living in Hobart. It’s exciting to think about what God’s already done in this city, and what’s still to come. Imagine ordinary people living in restored relationship with God and each other.

Ministries

Our Sundays are pretty typical church gatherings. We sings Christian songs, pray and listen to Bible teaching. We also run introductory Christianity courses, and meet in small groups during the week.
