York St Church Of Christ is affiliated with Churches of Christ Vic/Tas a movement born in the early 1800′s in the United States. Barton W. Stone and Alexander Campbell previously Presbyterian clergy, were leading figures who sought to renew the whole Christian church on the pattern set forth in the New Testament, without regard to the creeds which allegedly kept Christianity divided. Churches are now found throughout the globe, claiming to “concentrate on the essential aspects of the Christian faith, allowing for a diversity of understanding with non-essentials. ”
Among key practices are the weekly celebration of the Lord’s Supper(Communion) on the first day of each week and a commitment to believer’s baptism by immersion in water.
