In 2018, Life Church Culburra Beach changed its name to Groundswell Church. The name is taken out of Isaiah 43:16-21 MSG. It speaks of a move of God, that was generated through the ocean and spread inland, a move of God that breaks chains and causes new life to spring up, this move of God that Isaiah writes about is a Groundswell.
A Groundswell is “a broad deep undulation of the ocean caused by an often distant gale or seismic disturbance” and “a rapid spontaneous growth, a groundswell of support” We believe that what God has started here in Culburra Beach is going to impact not only our region and nation, but the nations of the world. We see Groundswell church as a vibrant, life giving church, that connects people with God, each other and empowers people to “turn the world upside down”. We believe our call and mandate is to take Groundswell to our nation and plant life giving churches in communities.
Groundswell Church is part of the Acts Global Churches movement
