About Us

Rise Alliance is a church in Brisbane’s south east. Just as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, so is the migration story of many of the people at Rise. Like the sun, we want people to radiate the good news of Jesus everywhere. Rise Alliance is a church of the Christian and Missionary Alliance of Australia.
