Petersham AOG Church has a history founded in a revival that took place in Sydney (Australia) in the 1920’s. Birthed out of the influence and ministry of one of the greatest evangelists of all-time, Smith Wigglesworth, Petersham became the first AOG Church in Sydney, establishing the pioneering spirit found in this house today. 


In our latest history, Petersham has planted and released many churches both locally and internationally. The same heart to reach people and raise leaders are still at the core of our church. As we continue to step forward into our calling we are excited and expectant for what is to come. As our church was birthed in revival - we will continue to run in revival and we truly believe that our best days are ahead of us.

MARK 16:15 And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.


Thats right - everyone. The good news is for ALL. Whoever you are - whatever you’ve done and whatever you’re going through - JESUS IS FOR YOU. Our message is Jesus to the crowd and Jesus to the one. Our mission is to take Jesus to everyone we know. 


MARK 16:15 And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.


ALL the world. Not just one part - but the whole world. There is no cap and no limit of where the gospel should be taken. The highways and the byways. In our work places. In our schools. In our homes. In our businesses. Our vision is take Jesus everywhere we go.
