We are NOT affiliated with Daniel Nalliah, Catch the Fire Ministries or Rise Up Australia

Catch The Fire World (including Catch The Fire Sydney and Catch The Fire Melbourne) is NOT affiliated with Daniel Nalliah, Catch the Fire Ministries or Rise Up Australia

We have become aware of Daniel Nalliah’s organization (Catch the Fire Ministries) recently losing their charitable status in Australia. We want to emphasize and reassure you that we are in no way affiliated with Daniel Nalliah or in support of his organizations. Catch The Fire World is a Christian Ministry founded by John & Carol Arnott (Toronto, Canada) which is now led by Duncan & Kate Smith (Raleigh, USA).  Catch The Fire World has over 30 affiliated Churches around the world including Catch The Fire Sydney (led by Daniel & Robyn Lambert) and Catch The Fire Melbourne (led by John & Pauline Arnott). Catch The Fire World owns the registered trademark “Catch The Fire” in Australia and we are saddened that this ministry (Catch the Fire Ministries led by Daniel Nalliah) is tarnishing our reputation in this great nation.

We are not affiliated with Catch the Fire ministries in Australia

There are some posts going around on social media affiliating us with a "Catch the Fire Ministries" in Australia, however just to clear things up, we are not in any way shape or form affiliated with that specific group or the Rise Up Australia Party, run by Danny Nalliah and we do not share the same views or objectives on many areas. We love all people, no matter their background, race, colour, gender, sexuality etc...We believe the Bible as being truth, (which is our religious right), but if people don't share our beliefs, we don't discriminate against them, we don't treat them poorly and we don't force our beliefs on them. We strongly believe that God did not come into the world to condemn the world, but that the world could be saved through His son (John 3:17) and we follow His lead. We don't condemn or judge, we love. Central Coffee and Catch the Fire Central Toronto Church are both safe places for anyone from any background or belief system to come. Our priorities are to be welcoming, loving, and helpful and to serve you an excellent cup of coffee or tea. We hope to see you soon.
