John Chapman and Dave McDonald are photographed here at the the first Crossroads morning meeting at MacGregor Hall. In the evenings Crossroads also used to meet at the Manning Clark Lecture Theatre (before it was demolished and rebuilt into the Manning Clark Hall, Kambri Cultural Centre) ANU.
20 March 2020
On Sunday 20 March 2020, on the eve of COVID lockdowns in Canberra, Crossroads City could not meet in their normal venue, in Manning Clark Hall at the Australian National University, instead they met at Merici College in Braddon. This was the last time we met for almost 9 months due to COVID lockdowns. As you can see, social distancing was not really a thing yet.
In 2021 Crossroads Celebrated 25 Years (during COVID Lockdown)
Just over 25 years ago a group of former ANU students and their families started a new Canberra church called Crossroads. This church did not have a building, nor was it steeped in tradition, instead it was young, contemporary, and 100% committed to university ministry.
Listen to Founding Pastor Dave McDonald talk to Marcus Reeves, current Senior Pastor, about the work of Crossroads and what the future has in store.
