May our hearts burn

Church pews empty and Bibles gather dust. The once fiery flame of our faith can at times feel dim. But what if our hearts were to be re-ignited for Jesus?

Revival in history has been marked by extraordinary prayer, faith-fuelled unity and great expectation. We are praying for God to move in great power and love to bring a revival of faith in our cities, in our day.

The City on a Hill Conference will be three days to worship Jesus, pray for revival, unite across our churches, and encourage one another in faith. Will you join us?


What to expect?

Extraordinary things happen when God’s people gather in faith.

The City on a Hill Conference will be three days for all our churches to unite in Christ, gathering around the theme of “revival” and together seeking a powerful move of God across our movement and nation.

Come ready for gospel teaching, prayer, worship, and community. Expect to be transformed by God’s Word and re-ignited in faith.

Our speakers for 2024 include our Senior Pastor Guy Mason, Nick Coombs (Lead Pastor of City on a Hill Melbourne East), and special guest Jon Tyson. Jon is a gifted preacher, author, and pastor of Church of the City in New York City.

The conference will include Bible talks, praise and worship, breakout sessions and more.

Kids & Youth

We can’t wait to welcome your whole family to the Conference!

City Kids
City Kids will be exploring the theme of revival, learning about God’s role and our part in revival.

On Friday we will be offering City Kids programs for crèche (1-3 years old), preschool (3-5 years old) and school-aged children (Prep/K to Year 6), followed by a family breakout session in the afternoon. On Saturday we will also be running City Kids programs before an all-age session to close the Conference.

Kids are welcome to attend the evening sessions with their parents. However, a dedicated play space will also be available for you to watch a livestream of the evening sessions while you look after your young ones.

City Youth
Youth (ages 12-17) are encouraged to attend all main sessions of the Conference. On Friday afternoon there will be two specific breakouts for youth to attend.

Our prayer is to see God’s spirit move amongst our kids and youth as they encounter the gospel in their own lives and are equipped to share Jesus with their friends.

It’s a chance to have your faith ignited, gather with brothers and sisters from across the country and be empowered for what God has next for you. If you’re keen for gospel teaching and a few days of lifting the name of Jesus then the conference is for you.
What is the theme for the conference?
City on a Hill Conference in 2024 will be three days to gather around the theme of “revival” with gospel teaching, prayer and worship, and community with other followers of Jesus. Expect to be transformed by God’s word and re-ignited in faith as we unite around the hope of Jesus.
Are there discount options for tertiary students?
Yes! We recognise there are tertiary students who attend City on a Hill, so if you are an adult studying at university, TAFE, college etc… you can receive a discounted rate.
What options are there for children and youth involvement?
In 2024 the Conference will run in the Victorian and Queensland school holidays. These align with the last day of school for those in New South Wales. As such, programs for City Kids will run during the Friday and Saturday of Conference and there will be City Youth options offered at different times as well. The specifics of these programs will be communicated closer to the conference. As always, all volunteers will need to hold a current Working with Children Check.
Will any meals be provided?
There will be some light refreshments available throughout the conference, and you will be able to purchase your own coffees, lunch and dinner at one of many cafe’s, restaurants or fast food places close to the venue.
Is there a half day / day pass ticket available if I can’t make it to the whole conference?

We believe people will get the most out of the conference by being part of the whole weekend. However, we understand this isn’t possible for everyone due to different circumstances, and if this is the case for you, please reach out to as we’d love to see how we can support you. A livestream will be available for delegates who can’t make it to every session, such as parents at home with children in the evenings. In addition, recordings of the main sessions will be available for ticket holders to watch after the conference.

What is included in the ticket price?
Your ticket to the conference gives you access to 3 days of life changing bible teaching, amazing community, Jesus exalting worship and breakouts equipping you to arise and go into the world with the message of Jesus. With your ticket you get access to all main sessions of the conference plus breakout sessions.
Is billeting available for those travelling interstate?
Yes! If you are travelling interstate to attend the Conference and would like to stay with a member of City on a Hill, please fill out a form at and we will endeavour to find you a host.
Is there financial assistance for those that cannot afford to pay?
