You can join us each week for our Sunday services at 230 McKillop St, East Geelong at 9am, 11am, and 6pm.
There is plenty of parking at the church and in the surrounding streets. City on a Hill Geelong is a vibrant and diverse community of all ages and many nationalities. The morning services are all age with kids and youth programs from creche to year 12. The 6pm evening service mostly attracts young adults and students and is followed by a weekly meal. Whether you are not yet a Christian, exploring your faith or wanting to go deeper, you are welcome – so come along, we’d love to meet you, help you get connected, and encourage you to experience more of the beauty, truth, and relevance of Jesus for yourself!
Services are now back up and running physically, but during this COVID season we will be seeking to make our services as safe as possible. Services will have a capped attendance and children and youth can be signed out for their programs from 10 minutes before service start times. Post service refreshments will be served outside in the church grounds. Pre-registrations will be live at 6pm AEDT each Wednesday.
Throughout the week our Gospel Communities gather online or in homes across the Geelong region as they do life, love, and mission together. This is one way of keeping our big church small. Most groups enjoy a meal and social time before spending time studying the Bible and praying together. Many people find the people in their Gospel Community become their closest friends and the people who are there in tough times and the good.

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.
During the 9am and 11am service, age appropriate programs run for crèche (10 months-3 years), kinder (4-5 years), younger primary (prep-grade 2) and upper primary (grade 3-5).
It is important during this season to pre-register your children for City Kids services using the link below. 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 through the Families Entrance to the left of the Main Church Hall. Check-in opens 10 mins before the start of each service.
City Youth exists to know Jesus and make Jesus known. We seek to partner with families to help young people explore their faith in a safe and nurturing space. Our community is built around opportunities where they can build friendships and ask deep questions about life and faith.
Each Sunday we release a new City Youth episode to engage year 6 to year 12 students while during this season of COVID restrictions City Youth meets online via Zoom from 7-9pm every Friday during school term.
2020 was a tough year. Our church in Geelong refused to look inwards in fear but stepped out in faith and love. Bless 2020 was a campaign of radical generosity. In this campaign we set out to raise $120,000 above and beyond our normal giving and then give it all away! To bless those in need in Geelong, Australia and around the globe. In God's grace we raised $121, 830! The campaign has now closed, In the months ahead we will be sharing how this money has been used and what it has achieved. Praise God for his goodness!
