A Community of Jesus followers in Manly, Northern Beaches Sydney


At Small Boat Big Sea we have a reputation for “doing church differently” but that’s not how we see it. In fact, we don’t think we “do church” at all, let alone differently. We are simply a community of Jesus-followers who prefer people to programs, and worship-in-action to worship-in-a-building. We’re a tight knit bunch, deeply committed to working together in God’s mission in Christ to bring peace and hope and love to the world – including our own world in Manly as well as the whole world out there.

The Lounge

The Lounge is church stripped of its formality. We follow a simple liturgy:Blessing, Eating, Adoration, Teaching, Sending (one of our regulars shares about their typical week, then we reflect to them the ways we see they image Jesus in what they do, and send them to continue to bless people).
