About Soma

A community following Jesus. We are a church community spread across the Blue Mountains and Penrith. We believe the Way of Jesus is good news for today, and our desire and ambition is to follow him together for the renewal of the world. We are part of Soma Australia and City to City Australia.

Gospel Communities

Gospel Communities are the primary way we scatter during the week to be the people of Jesus. These are communities of Christians on mission with God, depending on the Spirit, showing and sharing the Gospel of Jesus among specific pockets of people, situated across the Blue Mountains and in Penrith.

Year Of Authentic Community In The World

In 2021, we’re diving into an initiative we’re calling ‘The Year of Authentic Community In The World.’

We keep hearing in the news and all over social media, how our nation and our world is so divided – that it’s broken, that we can’t seem to get along. How it’s full of violence, both physical and verbal, and it’s full of hate. But if you think about it, all the things that seem to be at the centre of our violence and hate are relational. Whether it’s about race, politics, sexuality, or justice. At the heart of it is how we relate to each other. How we live in community with one another.
