Your Church in Brisbane City is a Christian church in the Brisbane central business district, Australia, that holds public worship services each Sunday morning.[1]

Its website lists its aim as "Connecting Christians and Changing Lives" with importance placed on worshipping Jesus and welcoming everyone. [1]

The church was formed on September 23 1883 [2] as a church affiliated with the Churches of Christ in Australia with roots to the Restoration Movement. Throughout its history it has also been known as "Brisbane Disciples of Christ", "Brisbane City Church of Christ" but was best known as "Ann Street Church of Christ". The historic building at 430 Ann Street, Brisbane, was built in 1881. The sum of 1,100 pounds was the price paid when it was purchased by the Church of Christ in 1898.[3]

The church was active in starting other Brisbane churches. In 1912 it held an outreach to Hawthorne and established a Sunday school that in 1914 became the Hawthorne Church of Christ.[4] The Sunday school secretary of the Ann Street church in the early 1920s was Australian army chaplain John Kenneth Martin.[5]

A future Queensland Premier Digby Denham was a leading member in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
