As a church family, we feel most closely aligned to the beliefs outlined in The Lausanne Covenant. A lot of our thinking comes from Timothy Keller (City to City) and Jeff Vanderstelt (Soma).
Soma Australia is a network of missional churches within the City to City network
Soma Australia began 7 years ago, with a lot of help from Soma in the United States. Over this time, several info nights and training events, as well as developing a supportive network, have enabled many churches to be planted across the country who are applying key Soma concepts in contextually relevant ways. We have churches in Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne, Adelaide, Hobart and Perth.
Soma Australia has officially joined City to City Australia. City to City is a global church-planting movement emanating from Tim Keller, NYC. It provides best practice training and support for church planters, church plants and networks of church plants. We have already been encouraged by the mutual benefits of this new collaboration for seeing gospel growth in Australia!
