End Church is a welcoming Christian community of people who have discovered Jesus. End Church invites people of all ages and backgrounds to explore the timeless rhythms of faith and life with them.
We have a timeless and vibrant faith – expressing the vibrancy and beauty of the various Christian traditions from throughout the ages.
We value clarity and mystery – holding in tension the clarity of truth revealed in the word of God and person of Christ, and the mystery inherent in spirituality.
We embrace curiosity – welcoming those who are intrigued with what they see, wherever they are in their journey to discover what they believe.
Vision and Values
We see a church that is passionate about the Person of Jesus, the People of God and the Plan of God for the world.
Our Mission is to make fully committed followers of Jesus.
The Person of Jesus
We see a church that is secure in the love of the Father, overshadowed and empowered by the Holy Spirit and deeply devoted to Jesus Christ.
We see a community that worshipfully responds, at every opportunity, to who Jesus is and all that He has done for us.
The People of God
We see a church that is overflowing with people from all walks of life who have personally experienced the transformative power of the Gospel.
We see a compassionate and accepting community of Christians whose love for one another and for Jesus is infectious and attractive.
The Plan of God for the World
We see a vibrant church in West End that is influencing and impacting the inner city of Brisbane. We see a church with a vision to reach out to and serve the nations of the world.
We see a church where people have a conviction that Jesus has entrusted the Great Commission to them personally.
The pastors of End Church are Glen and Maureen Cochrane.
They love each other, their family of four adult children, and the people of West End and inner city Brisbane.
They each discovered the reality of a faith in Christ as adults and know what it is to find a new beginning. Their passion to help the spiritually curious find their own new beginning through discovering Jesus Christ is what has motivated them to start a church in West End.
They may not have met you yet, but they’re praying for you, and look forward to meeting you.
Who We Are
End Church is a part of the AUSTRALIAN CHRISTIAN CHURCHES, which is a movement of Pentecostal Churches in voluntary cooperation. Each individual church is self-governing, but commits itself to work together with other churches in the movement for the purpose of mutual support and the spread of the gospel in Australia and the world.
The Assemblies of God in Australia was formed in 1937 and has experienced consistent growth. It adopted a new name of Australian Christian Churches in 2007 and currently consists of over 1,000 churches with over 280,000 constituents, making it the largest Pentecostal movement in Australia.
In our churches you’ll find vibrant, contemporary Christians who love the Lord Jesus Christ and express that love in lively praise and worship and in caring relationships. Australian Christian Churches are Bible-loving, evangelical and Pentecostal, and are about connecting people to Jesus Christ.
We share in the beliefs of the Christian Church, so wonderfully expressed in the Nicene Creed.
The Nicene Creed
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.
Jesus said to go into all the world, and even though we are a young church we have decided to act on that command.
We have chosen to support ministries and missionaries from all over the globe whom we have relationship with.
Saul & Rebecca Thurrowgood
Saul and Rebecca Thurrowgood got married in 2008. They have 3 children, Leia, Zoe and Emily. Saul has worked in science for a long time and had no reason to believe in anything spiritual until a student at his workplace told him about Christianity and offered to buy him a Bible—surprisingly he accepted. He has 13 years of experience working in computer vision research.
Rebecca is a Child Of Deaf Adult (CODA). She has worked as an Auslan Language Model/Teacher’s Assistant for 8 years with primary school children in a Bilingual/Bicultural program. Rebecca also has extensive experience as a paraprofessional interpreter. Saul and Rebecca have felt God’s calling to be involved with the Deaf in Christian ministry and to contribute to the work of translating Bibles into sign language for the Deaf around the world.

Kathy Dadd – Serving Indigenous Australians through Bible translation
Kathy is passionate about people having access to God’s Word and is saddened that so many Indigenous Australians still don’t have the Scriptures in a language they easily understand. God has given Kathy a love of languages and she has now completed her linguistic and theological studies.
Kathy will live in the Northern Territory to serve Indigenous Australians through Bible translation. She will be working on the translation of the Plain English Version (PEV), supporting Aboriginal Bible translators and training to be a translation consultant. The PEV is an English translation of the Bible designed for people who speak an Aboriginal language as their mother-tongue. It is used by those who do not yet have the Scriptures in their own language, or who meet with Christians from other language groups. In order to support the Aboriginal translators, Kathy will spend some time living in a community, learning an Aboriginal language.
Please be praying for wisdom and that God will prepare a team of Indigenous Christians for her to serve alongside.
