Sunday Services

You can join us on Sundays at 9am at the Palace Barracks Cinemas, 61 Petrie Terrace or 5.30pm at Ithaca Presbyterian.

We’re back to meeting in person. The 9am service will also be live streamed on FacebookYouTube or at for those unable to attend.

Located in the heart of Brisbane, the Palace Barracks is home to our morning services and is accessible from all directions with plenty of parking downstairs. See the team at our Welcome Desk or the staff at the box office to get your ticket validated for up to 3 hours of free parking.

Located 2km from the Palace Barracks, Ithaca Presbyterian is home to our evening service. There is some parking on site and there is plenty of parking on the street.

Our Sunday services are a great opportunity to gather together to know Jesus and make Jesus known through song, prayer and preaching from the Bible. We gather as people of all sorts of backgrounds—churched and unchurched, white-collar and blue-collar, young and old—to hear the best news in the world, that Jesus has lived, died, and risen for us.

Gospel Communities

During the week, we scatter throughout Brisbane in smaller Gospel Communities to share life, give and receive love, and grow in maturity together.

Our Gospel Communities are all across Brisbane, so there’s sure to be one near you. If not, we are continually raising up new leaders and starting new Gospel Communities, so one is not far away. We bring together people across ages and life-stages so we better experience the diversity of God’s people.

At our Gospel Communities, we dive into the passage of the Bible that we looked at on Sunday. We also share meals together, connect on a deeper level, pray for each other, and support one another in reaching out faithfully for Jesus to our wider world.


City Kids

We are passionate about seeing the next generation know Jesus and make Jesus known. Jesus said, “let the little children come to me” and so invited children to know him and walk with him. We want to help the children of our church know Jesus, and we do that on Sundays by teaching them deep truth from the Bible in fun and friendly ways. Our kids learn about Jesus, are challenged to live in light of him, and are equipped to tell their friends about him.

If you’re new to City Kids, please come a little early to check-in your children before the service starts and to meet some of the team. Check-in takes place on Level 2 near the entrance to Cinema 3. Our primary-aged program (Prep-Year 5) takes place in Cinema 4, our pre-school program (2 – 4+ years) takes place in Cinema 3, and our creche (10 months-2 years) is located in Cinema 2, which is right next door to our main Cinema.

Our City Kids and Creche programs take place only during the 9am service.

City Youth

We want to support and serve our young people as they seek to know Jesus and make Jesus known through the challenges and opportunities of youth.

City Youth takes place on a Sunday mornings post our 9am service. It’s for young people of high school age and meets in the foyer during the final stages of our 9am service.

City Youth then takes place at Tiger Eye Cafe in the Palace Barracks complex outside the Cinema. The mornings include cafe drinks (FREE) and lots of fun, along with relevant and impactful discussion and study of the Bible. We also have social nights that help our young people find real community and meet the real Jesus.

For more information about City Youth, please send us an email below.


We want to support you in your Christian faith, and so training is integral to our mission. We offer a variety of training events and courses which can encourage and equip you in growing your faith. These include Introducing Jesus – our Christianity course, women’s events, men’s events, and a Marriage Preparation course. Our goal is to disciple and equip everyone at City on a Hill to know Jesus and make Jesus known.

Many Rooms

Many Rooms is City on a Hill’s mercy ministry – a practical expression of care and support for those who are disadvantaged and vulnerable in our city. It operates across all City on a Hill churches, through our national-based programs: The Living Room and Care Pack Initiative. Find out about how you can get involved and explore your gift of service and mercy through Many Rooms.

Pastoral Care

The best place to care and be cared for pastorally is in a Gospel Community. However, sometimes this is not possible or suitable. A pastoral care team exists to help support and care in such cases. If you would like to speak with one of our pastors, please email us or fill out an online connect form.
