Connect with us

 

We are a group of Christian freinds at university in Port Macquarie.

Going to university is significant.  The friends you meet and the choices you make can end up defining the trajectory of your life.  When you do life together at PCS, we plug you into a fellowship with Jesus at the centre.

 

We come from multiple churches.  We're across various uni campuses in Port Macquarie.  We come together as one body of Christ to better share Jesus with friends and classmates.

 

We are not a church, but delight in connecting students to churches in the Port Macquarie/Hastings region.
