Who are we

ACCR (Australian Christian Church Roselands) is The Greek Church of God church which started with Pastor Nick Kola, Kerry Theodore and George Kaisharis in Feb 1958 relaunched in 2010 as ACCR under Pastor Andrew Kola and Francesca Kola.

The transition from a Greek speaking church to an English-speaking multinational church was overdue. The change was made over one week, with the very next church service held was all in English.

Since then we have enjoyed encouraging both the original Greek congregation of whom we have retained, and new members alike.

Our church services consist of a time of worship, followed by the preaching from the word of God, finishing with a time of fellowship coffee/tea and an assortment of things to eat.
