Welcome to Forward


From the 12th July, we can now physically meet for church. We can’t wait to see you all in person again!

To ensure your safety in this season, register yourself and your family members for our Queensland Locations.

We will also continue to stream all services online! To watch our on demand services, head over to our online campus.

Our Pastors

Who we are

Daniel & Rautini are the Senior Pastors of Forward Church. They have been married for 15 years & have 3 children. In 2013 they moved to the Gold Coast from Wellington, New Zealand.

Knowing a handful of people in this new city, they launched Forward Church in February 2014 with a launch team of twenty people and have since grown to hundreds gathering every weekend. Today over 1000 people call Forward Church home. Daniel & Rautini have an entrepreneurial spirit, with a background in Business Management & Real Estate. Their passion however is the local church, and with over 25 years of pastoral care experience between them, they are committed to creating life giving churches that empower generations.
