Serving in The Land Down Under

Congregation Beth Yeshua Australia

Yokine, WA

About Our Congregation

Beth Yeshua Australia is shepherded by Steve “Arnie” Arnold and his wife Cindy Arnold.  This fledgling fellowship was originally founded  in 2011 on the Gold Coast of Queensland, but God had other plans. It wasn’t long before God called them back to Perth to start a Messianic fellowship. For several years they led a small home-based group of Believers, but God had other plans.

In late November of 2017, just before Chanukah, Beth Yeshua Australia was blessed with a new home for its weekly Shabbat services – in the Jewish Community Centre in Yokine, Western Australia. This small but dedicated group is committed to touching hearts, and changing lives.

Where is CBY Australia?

“Arnie” and Cindy Arnold (Congregational Leaders) are based in Butler – a small coastal suburb of Perth, Western Australia. Beth Yeshua Australia comes together each Shabbat at 2PM in the Main Hall of the Jewish Community Centre.

There is ample parking. Everyone is welcome and there are light refreshments and fellowship following the meeting.

I Am The Nations... (Video)

In May/Jun 2017, Beth Yeshua International (BYI) in Macon, Georgia, was blessed to welcome three of its four congregational leaders. This video is a compilation of past visits, and their recent joint visit.

To paraphrase Arnie from the I am the Nations video (at about the 17:54 minute mark)

“,,, That’s all I wanted to do. We’re small in Australia, but we’re trying and we’re sharing. Like Greg said, there’s a need there for a legitimate Messianic congregation, and that’s what I want to take back and build; to just take a little piece of this [of Beth Yeshua- Macon] and to build on it. It is such a privilege and an honour. And, it’s so needed!”

I planted the seed, and Apollos watered it, but it was God who made it grow. So neither the planter nor the waterer is anything, only God who makes things grow — planter and waterer are the same.
