NEW-age churches are fast becoming the scourge of suburbia, with
residents fed up with booming rock music that has become the hallmark of
their services.

In Brisbane, communities at Yeronga, Annerley, Salisbury and New Farm
are among those angry about marathon sermons and "Christian karaoke"
which they say are making their weekends a misery, The Courier-Mail reports.

Kathy Davis, of inner-city New Farm, said police were regularly called
to the Metro Church in upmarket Sydney Street because of ear-splitting

"As soon as they go the music is turned up again. It can go for eight
hours and there's no escaping it," Ms Davis said.

Police confirmed they had been called to the address on a number of
occasions in relation to excessive noise.

Despite complaining to local councillor David Hinchliffe, State Labor MP
Grace Grace and the Metro Church itself, residents have been unable to
get any peace.

"The council did impose an 8.30am (AEST) curfew for Sunday, which is

Prior to that we were being blasted as early as 7am on a Sunday," Ms
Davis said.

Another New Farm resident, Malcolm Rough, said he used to attend the
church until the noise got too loud.

"I'd take ear plugs to wear during the service," Mr Rough said.

The Rock church at Annerley has also received complaints about noise and
neighbours of Life Church at Salisbury said the behaviour of young
patrons left much to be desired.

"They come out on the street and make a hell of a mess," said a
long-term resident who did not want to be named.

"I don't know what happened to 'love thy neighbour'."

State president of Australian Christian Churches pastor Wayne Alcorn
said the approach to services varied from church to church.

"There are definitely a significant number of our churches that use
modern, contemporary music," Mr Alcorn said. "This is one of the reasons
we are growing through attracting young people."

Residents in a long-running dispute with the Anglican Church at Yeronga
said they had made some progress after dispute resolution mediation.

But Jenny Johansen said they were still subjected to hours of amplified
music every Sunday afternoon.

"It really drives up the stress levels when all you want is to have a
quiet sit in your back yard," Ms Johansen said.

"The last thing you want is to have to listen to Christian karaoke."

Reverend Trevor Butler said he was working with the local Ethiopian
community which conducted the Sunday afternoon service, to limit the noise.

The last thing you want is to have to listen to Christian karaoke."

those crazy bastards, that is mind control for sure...

jack off crazies can blast there music at 8 or 10 in the morning or anytime during the day. but when those same ass-faces go home, and they see the neighborhood red eyed kid playing White Chapel Grind-core Metal music they call the police and use the statement " I am a humble and quiet christian and I just can't concentrate! the music sounds like the devil and its so loud!"

so much for making sense. :headscratch:

but it still isn't fair for either side, I think after noise laws are fucking stupid.

it takes common sense over a law to know when to be quiet. but unfortunately ( as stated above) some people take advantage of that for whatever purpose.
