About us

Exploring ways to live simply, lovingly and joyfully together

GraceTree is a community in Melbourne's inner north committed to following Jesus and caring for one another. We value hospitality, sustainability, creativity, and healthy relationships with God, ourselves, one another and the earth. As a community where "all are one in Christ Jesus" we welcome you regardless of ethnicity, class, gender, or sexual preference. Whether it's your first time at GraceTree, or you've been hanging around a while, we pray that you will find the peace and joy of God in your visit.

Layers of community

Find where you fit best

Residents

Two families live in intentional community on site, one in Manna House (106) and one in Thomas Merton house (104). Each house has a Christ-room (guest room) and a focus on welcoming all those whom God draws near.

Kids

Kids are essential to our shared life and community, and have a central role in our gathered worship.

Family

GraceTree family are those who come regularly to GT events and commit themselves to one another and the common way of life described in our Resolve.

Friends

GraceTree friends are those who come regularly to GraceTree events but haven’t committed to the group or its practices. These include some folks who come to Sunday gatherings, as well as blokes’ group and the those who are part of the Asylum Seeker Woodwork Project.
