Who We Are.

At Imagine Church we are passionate about creating a LIFE-GIVING environment for people to ENCOUNTER God through worship and be EQUIPPED for everyday life through a Bible-based message.


We believe that the church is the hope of the world and it’s where people find their PURPOSE and are GRACED to live their best life as totally committed Christ-followers.


No matter where you find yourself on the journey of faith, you are welcome at Imagine Church.


Our hope for you is that you would deepen your relationship with God, take your next step as a Christ-follower, discover your purpose and then live it out empowered by the grace of God.

Ps. Donavan & Shelley Cassell

Senior Pastors of Imagine Church


Jesus is the only way to eternal life. The message of salvation is good news and is the first step in the discipleship journey.


Spiritual freedom from your past is available to all who follow Christ and this freedom can be experienced when we devote ourselves to the ways of God.


As Christ-followers we all have a part to play in God's church. Being committed to a church gives us the opportunity to bring our skills, time and resources to extend the kingdom of God through our local church. It’s where we find a purpose to live for that which is bigger than ourselves.


We live empowered by the Holy Spirit who leads us and guides us in the way of the word as a Christ-follower.

The Legacy of Imagine Church

Imagine Church started in 1981 as Rhema South Family Church. It started with a few people in a home and has now become a HOME to thousands of people.

The church transitioned leadership to Pastors Donavan and Shelley Cassell in January 2014 from Pastor Donavan’s parents (Pastors Anthony and Laurel who founded the church).


In 2021, during our annual Vision, the Church name changed from Rhema South Family Church to Imagine Church, paving a new way forward for our church.


We are a Christ-centred and Bible-based church that exists to disciple people into totally committed Christ-followers.




Pastors Donavan and Shelley are visionary leaders who set the direction and tone for the church. They are advised in decision-making by an Advisory Board and are accountable financially to a Finance Board made up of business leaders not employed by the church. The church is audited annually.


We are affiliated to ARC (Association of related churches) which is an international church planting organisation, as well as RFC (Rhema Family Churches).
