Welcome to the Cairns Area of the Disciples of Jesus Covenant Community!  
The Cairns Area of Disciples of Jesus Covenant Community had its beginnings with 3 married couples coming together to pray for covenant community in January, 1995.
The couples, Francis and Gaile Bedford, Mark and Mignon Crawford, Steven and Cher Logan, were all the fruit of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal here in Cairns.
After consultation with John Kennedy, the Presiding Elder of Disciples of Jesus Covenant Community, we approached the Bishop of Cairns diocese, with a view to beginning an area of community here in north Queensland.
Roger McWhinney, an elder from the Melbourne branch, came to Cairns to live with us, and form us in community ways.   He stayed for 4 months, and then in 1997 Craig and Alison Dalzell came from Canberra with their children to lead us and form us in the Disciples of Jesus way of life for the next two years and nine months. We continue to thank God for Roger and the Dalzells - for their help, sacrifice, and commitment to us as a developing community area.
We have a committed group of people, married couples, families and singles who are living a Christian lifestyle and feel called to evangelisation and mission.
Our Area leader is Francis Bedford, and we are based at St. Monica’s Cathedral in the centre of Cairns. We meet every Sunday at 2.30pm at the Cathedral meeting room for our general community Gathering, to worship and give thanks to the Lord in prayer and praise. Every second Sunday of the month we have a fellowship picnic at one of our local beaches or creeks and picnic areas.
