CRL – Risen Lord Community Australia



Community of the Risen Lord was established in Sydney in 2009. What started as a small gathering of three families has now grown into a large and vibrant group of people who intentionally pursue the heart of God. We are based in Stanhope Gardens in North-West Sydney. Our community has a large youth and young adults population which is one of our strengths. Our community has been blessed with many gifts of the Holy Spirit and most importantly the unity, joy and peace that is true and real which is the most valuable gift all of us enjoy everyday.

Weekly Prayer Meetings: Every Friday 7:30 PM The Catholic Parish of St John XXIII Glenwood – Stanhope Gardens
