We are an emerging church (aka emergent, fresh expression or alternate worship), based in Melbourne, Australia, where the core is orthodox, but the asking of hard questions is encouraged. We want to be Jesus' people, but not in a weird "churchy" way.
Hang around in bars, drink coffee, talk about God.
We are a humourous church for serious people. (Well... reasonably serious.)
Caravan is time and space to direct our attention towards God. No matter if we are full of grief, or of doubts, or of joy: God wants us to come to him, to bring our deepest concerns, and our real selves; to anchor ourselves in the bedrock of the universe. Caravan is a collaborative approach to worship, through words, music, images, and silence. We bring ourselves, heart, mind, and soul, to God through our presence, our attention, and our responses.

A collaborative project, with writings and images by members and friends of Cafechurch
Drawn from our experience of life in post-modern Melbourne, created by a group of friends, the written and visual musings in this little volume reflect on the beauty and the pain of being human, and our quest for an authentic spirituality: the search for the God who so often eludes us.
Tentatively, these works express the sense that trapped between the cliff and the sea, even in the darkest places, the most unexpected people, and the most difficult situations, there is a chance of real relationship, meaning to be found, and the possibility of hope.
