Christian church attendance in Australia is static or declining. Contrary to this trend Some churches have been identified as attracting increased numbers of attenders. Within this group of new attenders there is a category of attendees joining churches for the first time, or rejoining after a substantial absence of years. These can be called “Newcomers.” The research problem focuses on exploring this atypical population. Hence, the purpose of this research is to explore the engagement of Newcomers in church attendance. The focus of the research is local churches which have high percentages of Newcomers.
