How It All Began

Our Story, Our Mission & How It All Began

Reach Church is a vibrant, multi-ethnic church passionate about bringing the life-transforming love of Jesus Christ to our city, nation and the world.

Pioneered as New Life Church Parramatta in 1991 by Pastors Gary and Joyce Dench, God gathered a community of believers from many nations to worship together in a community hall in Wentworthville, Sydney.

2014 Transition of Leadership

In 2012, the church purchased a place to call home in North Parramatta, and in 2014, Gary and Joyce Dench retired and transitioned the leadership of the church community to Pastors Graeme and Mandy Fitzgerald.

Reach Church is called to make disciples of all nations, and to release for the ministry, believers who love Jesus and are committed to reaching people and changing nations. In obedience to the call in 2019, a team from Parramatta were sent to plant Reach Church Riverstone in the North-West Sydney.

We are so glad to welcome you to Reach Church today.
