The Mission of Rhythm Church 

Rhythm Church is a modern community-engaged church that is intentional in seeing people become centrally devoted followers of Jesus Christ and see people encounter their God-intended Rhythm. 

Let’s do this together, all for His glory!

Meet the Pastors

Murray & Kathy Boyton

Pastors Murray & Kathy Boyton

In 2013, Murray felt the call to plant a church in Caloundra South (later to become Aura). Together, they possess a wealth of ministry experience; from missionaries to Eastern Asia to being on full-time pastoral roles in a number of church environments both in Brisbane and the Gold Coast.


In 2017, they moved from Brisbane with their three children to embark on the greatest and most fulfilling adventure of their lives. 

In 2019, after being sent out of Newlife Church Nambour under the leadership of Ps Barry and Linda Wedrat, they launched Rhythm Church.

You may have seen Murray out and about Caloundra with his mobile coffee van; Grounds for Good. Murray regularly makes coffees for the homeless  and disadvantaged. In the coming months, Murray will open Rhythm Espresso, a community engaged, social enterprise espresso bar in Aura, which will support the disadvantaged while serving amazing coffee to the Aura community.

Kathy is a qualified teacher of the Word and exhibits a strong empath & mercy gift for the underprivildged and disadvantaged in the community.

Together, they are both credentialed with the Australian Christian Churches, a movement of more than 1000 Pentecostal churches throughout Australia.

Why Rhythm Church?

It doesn’t take much to see that life operates in a number of rhythms. The seasons of the year, the tides of the ocean, the heartbeat of our bodies.

Rhythm Church is a church that exists to offer a reset and to discover the divine rhythm for your life, as God originally intended. Part of that resetting is about changing the way the world views God.

You are invited to plan a visit Rhythm Church, where you will not be judged, where you won’t be pressured, where  your story matters and you will be enabled to make a difference.


What is important to Rhythm Church?

Jesus… a personal relationship with Jesus kickstarts the rhythm in our hearts

People… We see all ages trusting God, making wise choices and developing healthy relationships. All generations matter!

Relentless Grace… Responding with relentless grace and love with Jesus as our example

Unending Hope… Jesus is the hope for humanity.

Family… because in a healthy family, diversity is a reality and everyone belongs!

Celebration… because Jesus & people are worth celebrating in every season, and joy is the currency of heaven.

Authentic Community… because a healthy community makes way for every generation to flourish. Starting with the children, youth & young adults… A place to belong, grow and be seen.

Contagious Generosity… because generous people ‘show up’ practically, financially and spiritually to help, empower & bring solution & change to our local, national and global communities.

Divine Destiny… because everyone has something significant and unique to contribute. And it’s way more fun, doing life and building church together.

Discipleship… because we are all on a journey to know Christ & make Him known.

Audacious Faith… because as we step out in faith, led by the Holy Spirit, people will be saved, healed, restored, made whole, encouraged and inspired with direction to be everything God has designed them to be.

Prayer… because God is always listening and prayer changes things.

While our story may only just beginning on the Sunshine Coast, we truly that God is doing something very special. We are reaching people from all walks of life. Through partnerships with local community groups, we feed the homeless, we provide support for the disadvantaged including people on the spectrum and much much more.

Introducing Rhythm Initiative and Rhythm Espresso

The pace of life in the modern world can easily feel out of rhythm. Many of us are tired, distracted and overwhelmed by the length of our to do lists and the burdens we carry. Additionally, the frantic pace of society leaves some members of our community behind. Those who keep the pace eventually burnout; those who can’t reach it to begin with are left behind. Everyone loses.

So, we created Rhythm Espresso to set a different rhythm.

To remind you, that your story matters.

We’re a social enterprise espresso bar, here to upskill and empower those who are often left behind, forgotten about or overlooked. We’re creating accessible work experience and employment opportunities for people of all ability levels within our community. Too often inclusion and accessibility have been afterthoughts; we’re putting them first. As one of the first cafes in a new suburb, we want to set a precedent for empowering people of all abilities to learn, grow and shape this place.

At the same time, we’re creating a safe space full of good vibes, quality coffee and unhurried connection. We’re not anti-busy, but we’re unhurried. Your rhythm needs refreshment; we’re here to provide it. A place where every person is valued and every cup is poured with attention and presence.

We want to create the taste of a different rhythm. A presence in Aura that puts people first and helps to build our local area.

Join us for your next caffeine hit and see exactly what we mean.

Launching soon.
