Rise Pathway

Pathway is the a 5 step journey of discovery that we invite people to take as they begin to explore Rise Church as a place to call home.


Rise Church is a vibrant and growing church under the leadership of Pastor Tim Kreis. Tim is married to Venessa they have two children Ella and Leah.  Tim has developed his ministry in Rise Church serving as our Youth and Associate Pastor before transitioning to lead Pastor in February 2016. He has also served as the Youth Alive Director for South Australia.

Rise Church has been serving our local community since it  began on Sunday 30th April, 1995 as North East Christian Centre when Pastors Paul and David Helyard and their families pioneered a church in Greenacres. In 2002 we purchased our current property and transformed a decommissioned Power Station into our current facility.

With a strong presence in our local community and a significant and growing involvement in Cambodia and Indonesia our desire is to be a church that impacts locally and influences globally. 

Our services are designed to bring a life empowering message with a passionate, engaging expression of music and worship.

Rise offers a variety of programs from toddlers to our mature aged that enables people to connect and grow in their relationship with God and each other. We want to see each person come into a relationship with God and become all they are called to be.
