My wife Altamira and I, along with our daughter Passion, have been coming to City on a Hill since we moved to Melbourne from Sydney in July.
Having left the Army after five years to attend Bible College at Ridley, we were looking for a church that had excellent teaching and could support us spiritually as a young family. Before we even moved to Melbourne we'd heard about City on a Hill and the great things God was already doing there. When we started attending, not only did we find the community at large very welcoming, but also discovered the teaching was excellent.
My wife and I have been able to connect with some of the local families and made some wonderful friends who have already reached out and blessed us with true and genuine friendship.
As a young family we commend and are truly thankful for the hard work and dedication from the City on a Hill crèche team. We recognise week in and week out your loyal service, as it means so much to my wife and I as we get spiritually fed when we come to church. Our daughter Passion certainly loves the other kids and playtime – most weeks she doesn’t want to leave!
Lastly, as a theological student I am continually seeking Bible teaching that is sound, uplifting, encouraging and edifying for my family and the body of Christ. At no other church have I been as continually challenged by the depth and breadth of the teaching as I have from the pastors at City on a Hill. Their genuine spirit and concern for God’s people is certainly something that has struck me to the heart as a Christian and inspired me to strive for a lifestyle to serve Jesus and others with all I have.
If you are seeking a rock solid bible teaching church that loves Jesus, living to know Him and make Him known with cultural relevance and clarification – you have arrived.
