THE STORY SO FAR

City on a Hill began with a small team and a big vision to make a difference in our world for the glory of God. Since our inception in Melbourne in 2007, we have witnessed a remarkable work of God’s grace as he has united hundreds of men and women around the mission of ‘knowing Jesus and making Jesus known’. City on a Hill is now a movement of churches meeting across eight locations in five cities – including Brisbane, a church that began in 2016 and is now a community of over 400 people.

While our story is characterised by constant change and growth, we have maintained an enduring commitment to Christ and his call on our lives in this generation. We are committed to raising up gospel-hearted leaders, building healthy churches, which will reach and serve cities with the gospel of Jesus.
