Our Story

LifeHouse Church was launched in Coffs Harbour in 1987 by Founding Pastors, Steve & Bev Spence. Since then we have grown to meet in four locations including our Northern Beaches campus in Woolgoolga, our campus in Moree, our Grafton campus, and our weekly online service. 


LifeHouse Care was started in 1996 and the first Op Shop, (previously the Bargain Centre) was opened. Since then we've grown to five and seven food pantry locations, all working for the peace and prosperity of the communities we are a part of. 


In April 2011, LifeHouse Coffs Harbour moved into its current building on Orlando Street. And in April, 2017, The LifeHouse PlayHouse was built at the same location, creating a safe and engaging space for the families of the Coffs Coast to enjoy together. 


In 2012, Lotty and Cie moved from Coffs Harbour to Moree to plant a LifeHouse campus there. Eight years later, in 2020, we moved into an iconic building in the community of Moree which was gifted to the church.


After 31 years of leading LifeHouse, Steve and Bev Spence “passed on the baton” of the Senior Leadership to Lotty and Cie, and that is the story so far. Essentially, it’s a story all about the faithfulness of God. As we look to the future, it’s God’s faithfulness that inspires us to continue following the plan and purposes He has for His church.
