Lifebuilders Wesleyan Church was planted in the rapidly expanding northern fringe of Brisbane called Narangba. 

With a growing number of young families with primary school aged children our Sunday services are characterized by casual clothes, contemporary style music with occasional use of hymns, a time of prayer, some personal sharing, preaching and morning tea’s. We have an active children’s and youth ministry, and besides our regular meetings on Sunday’s we also meet for House Church every 4th Sunday of the month.

Whether you’re looking to discover what Christianity is about, wanting to re-discover the truths of the Bible or you just want to check us out, we look forward to having you over for a visit. 


We believe in God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ the Son suffered in our place on the cross, that he died but rose again, that he now sits at the Father’s right hand until he returns to judge all people at the last day. We believe in the Holy Scriptures as the inspired and inerrant Word of God. We believe that by the grace of God every person has the ability and responsibility to choose between right and wrong, and that those who repent of their sin and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ are justified by faith.
We believe that God not only counts believers as righteous, but that he makes them righteous, freeing them of sin’s dominion at conversion, purifying their hearts by faith and perfecting them in love at entire sanctification, and providing for their growth in grace at every stage of their spiritual life, enabling them through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit to live a victorious life.


As a church family we want to…

  • Create an environment in which we treat each other with respect and dignity.
  • Contribute positively to our communities.
  • Construct an atmosphere that allows people to experience the love of God.
  • Cultivate a community that nurtures spiritual growth in the lives of believers.
  • Commission every believer to serve through their unique talents and gifts.
  • Communicate the Good News of Jesus to everyone we can.


To nurture Christ followers who engage their world for Christ.


Living Life together for the Glory of God.


Jesus came to give life is full and good. – John 10:10b


The Wesleyan Methodist Church of Australia is part of a world-wide evangelical denomination with ministries in USA, Britain, Canada and Australia as well as over 40 other countries.
In a very real sense the church owes its origin to the great spiritual awakening of the 18th century when God raised up John and Charles Wesley. The Wesleyan revival soon spread from England to America where churches were established, and extraordinary growth in spiritual and numerical strength took place. Methodism was initially a movement stressing evangelism and a closer walk with God. Wesley determined to do all he could to make disciples who grew in every aspect of their spiritual and practical life.
This is what set the Methodists apart from many other movements at the time and led to real transformation of the church and society at large.
Early American Methodism was faithful to Wesley’s emphasis in doctrine and Christian conduct. However, Methodist ministers were pressured not to agitate for the abolition of slavery. Denied the right to exercise their consciences in this matter, many withdrew from the Methodist Episcopal Church. In 1843 the Wesleyan Methodist Church grew out of this reform movement. Our denomination, therefore, did not have its beginnings over a doctrinal issue.


During the Second World War many Christians became acutely aware of the great spiritual needs of the Australian people and prayed for an awakening. Following an encounter by the Rev. Kingsley Ridgway, with an American Wesleyan serviceman, contact was made with the Wesleyan Methodist Church of America. After the literature was studied, an invitation was extended to the movement to open work in Australia and an encouraging, affirmative answer was received.
A handful of people attended services, and from this group sprang a movement burdened for “the spreading of Scriptural holiness across the land”. In 1947 the Inaugural Conference was held and a Bible College commenced. We currently have almost 100 churches spanning all Australian states.
In 1974, a group of believers started the first Wesleyan Methodist Church in Queensland in the living room of Rev Dr Don Hardgrave’s house. This group grew and eventually bought the property in Mackenzie, since then God has used ThreeSixteen Church to continue developing disciples and building the kingdom of God. We would love you to join us in the task of making disciples here at ThreeSixteen.

People to live with.

At Lifebuilders we are here to walk alongside you regardless of what your family looks like or at what stage of family life you are in. We endeavour to develop stronger, healthier relationships as we grow spiritually and embrace Gods design for our relationships, family and marriage.

“You are members of God’s very own family.” Ephesians 2:19

Passion to live beyond.

We believe that healthy and vibrant relationships require open communication, and prayer is the language of communication with God. He invites us to speak to Him just as one would talk to a loving parent, bringing Him our joys as well as our needs.

“Announce with me the Lord’s greatness, let us praise His name together.”  Psalm 34:3

Profession to live out.

God did not design ministry for just a few people and therefore at Lifebuilders we believe that every member of our family is able to use their unique abilities to serve God.

“In the same way, since you’re eager to have spiritual gifts, try to excel in them so that you help the church grow.” 1 Corinthians 14:12

Purpose to live for.

At Lifebuilders our belief is that we were made for a mission and God wants you and me to share His love wherever we might find ourselves.

“Life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus – the work of telling others the Good news about God’s mighty kindness and Love.” Acts 20:24

Principles to live by.

Spiritual growth is not so much about, “doing” as it is about, “becoming”, and becoming more like Jesus.

“Jesus, undeterred, went right ahead and gave his charge…Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life…” Matthew 2 8:19


We believe that God extends His love to people of all ages, from all walks of life and from all nations and cultures and we treasure the contribution that each can make to the life of our church family.
While most people who come to our church service have already found a new life through Jesus, some are just starting out down the road of spiritual searching. If that’s you, then be assured that our open door definitely extends to you. Feel free to come and ask us questions during the time after a Sunday morning service or make an appointment to chat with Pastor Jake during the week. We’ll do our best to listen to your personal and spiritual needs and guide you in some of the next steps.

When you first arrive on a Sunday morning there should be someone to greet you. Make sure you allow plenty of time after the service to get to know us over a cup of tea or coffee. 

Dress in something that you find relaxing and comfortable. Smart casual is the norm. You’re welcome to get dressed up in something rather special but that’s not expected. Out of consideration for our church family, please dress modestly.
