Melbourne is ranked as the most liveable city in the world and is estimated to be the largest city in Australia by 2050. One person in three is born overseas and one person in four speaks a language other than English at home. It gathers the rich and recognised as well as the poor and neglected.
Melbourne is known as the cultural capital of Australia, boasting a vibrant arts and music scene, world–renowned galleries, internationally–acclaimed events such as its film and food festivals, world–class dining, a celebrated wine and coffee culture, and reverence for sport.
Approximately 80% of Melbourne’s population has little, if any, connection with a church community. Melbourne’s growing influence and the urgency of gospel work calls us to rise up. It is this time in salvation history that we’ve been sent to be responsible for carrying the gospel–baton in our generation.Find Out More
City on a Hill: Melbourne East is a church just now being built to know Jesus and make Jesus known in the east and southeast of Melbourne.
We’re just getting started in gathering a mission-minded core team together who are passionate about shining the light of Christ in their neighbourhoods and networks. We’re meeting together to build community and are being trained and equipped in the gospel for effective mission.
In the coming months we’ll be launching Gospel Communities around the south-east of Melbourne. Please join us in praying for the leaders of those groups, that they might be on the forefront of engagement in their local areas.
We’re currently looking to secure a Sunday venue in the Chadstone area. This is a highly strategic location being near the centre of the population of Melbourne, and one that bridges the established inner-south east with the ever expanding growth corridors of the south eastern suburbs. If you know anyone disconnected from a church community in the area, let them know we’re here!
Please be praying for the men and women that God is going to call to himself through this work. There are literally millions of people right across this region who need to know the beauty, truth and relevance of Jesus, and the saving power of his life, death and resurrection.
Traditionally a hardscrabble working class region, Melbourne's West is a constantly evolving and endlessly fascinating mix of cultures and demographics.
Stretching from the iconic Westgate Bridge, the west encompasses hip inner suburbs like Yarraville and Seddon, multicultural hotspots like Sunshine and Footscray, and then out to the ring of new suburbs in the greenfields of Point Cook and Caroline Springs.
Within this wonderful melting pot of cultures and dreams, there is great need - and opportunity. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, the rightful Lord of Melbourne's West – and we want to see his name magnified.Find Out More
