Our Senior Pastors

Hardy and Vicky Churlew are the founding and senior pastors of Northside Community Church, A Foursquare Church in Perth, Western Australia. They have been in full time ministry for over 35 years and are passionate about leading the local Church. Hardy is also currently the Supervisor of the Foursquare Churches in Western Australia.

The Past

After ministering as the pastors of the Foursquare Church in Katanning, Pastors Hardy and Vicky Churlew started a new church from scratch in the Wanneroo area in 1980. With four young girls, the family formed the majority of the congregation and there were times where they were in fact the whole congregation! Over the years, the church has grown and moved location a few times and in March 2018 settled in its own facility in Franklin Lane Joondalup. We normally see around 100 people come out for our Sunday services and there is still a welcoming family appeal.

Northside Community Church has been a source of inspiration for many families and singles over this journey and has been at the foundation of many lifelong friendships that have formed. Today, Northside Community Church still strives to increase its influence and reach in the community whilst welcoming each new person and visitor as if they are family.

The Future

Our vision represents our glimpse into the future and what we would like to become… We would like Northside to be:

A group of people who are passionate about worshiping and serving God with great contentment and happiness.

A group of people who never lose sight of the fact that the message of Jesus should continually be told in a contemporary way to our neighbours, our community and to the world.

A group of people giving the best of their talents and abilities to present the church and the message in a way that will help others to also follow Christ.

We want Northside to be a Church that we would be excited to be a part of.

A group of people who genuinely care for one another.


Our Heritage

Northside Community Church is part of the Foursquare Church which operates in every continent of the world with 8+ million members in nearly 70,000 Churches spread throughout 145 Nations. The term “Foursquare” is a Biblical term used of the tabernacle (a temple in a tent) in the Book of Exodus. The term “Foursquare Gospel” was used by the denomination’s founder, Aimee Semple McPherson to represent that which is equally balanced on all sides.

We say that “Jesus Christ is the Same, Yesterday and Today and Forever.” (Hebrews 13:8)

The Foursquare Gospel is in complete harmony with traditional Christian doctrine and is summarised as below. We believe that Jesus Christ is:

 The Saviour

“But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him…” –Isaiah 53:5 (Titus 2:14, Isaiah 55:7, Hebrews 7:25, Isaiah 1:18)

 The Baptiser With The Holy Spirit

“For John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit… you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” –Acts 1:5,8 (John 14:16-17, Acts 2:4, Acts 8:17, Acts 10:44-46, 1 Corinthians 3:16)

 The Healer

“He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses…” –Matthew 8:17 (Mark 16:17-18, Matthew 9:5-6, Acts 4:29-30)

 The Soon Coming King

“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout… the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.” –1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 (Titus 2:12-13, Matthew 24:36-44, Hebrews 9:28, Luke 19:13, Luke 12:35-37.)
