"Neos" Mission


"Neos" is the Greek word for new.  The Charlestown and Garden Suburb is setting out in a new mission into our community to discover where God is at work, form relationships, and see how our resources can assist in the growth of God's Kingdom. 

The mission is based on the work of Karina Kreminski in Surry Hill, NSW.  Karina was featured on an episode of ABC's Compass program a few years ago.  The show can be viewed here.

We have added a "Neos Blog" to our webpage so you can keep up to date with what we are discovering.  Check it out here.

What is Spiritual Direction?

The practice of being with people as they attempt to deepen their relationship with the divine, or to learn and grow in their own personal spirituality.
