Surf Coast

The Surf Coast. Sun, Surf, Sand, the great our doors and amazing lifestyle. Living on the coast is all about ‘lifestyle’. Two thousand years ago one man spoke a lot about life. His name was Jesus! He said, “I have come that they may have life, and life to the full.”City on a Hill - Surf Coast began as a small group of people meeting in a Mt. Duneed living room to pray and seek God’s call. Since then, this small group has grown to four Gospel Communities meeting in Jan Juc, Torquay, Mt. Duneed and Armstrong Creek.

We are a community of believers and seekers who desire to know Jesus and make Jesus known throughout the Surf Coast and the Armstrong Creek ‘greenfield’ growth corridor. Also, we are a church that gathers together every Sunday to praise, pray, and proclaim the good news of Jesus at the iconic BoardRiders HQ in the heart of the Surf Coast.

You are welcome to come and experience the abundant life Jesus offers to all who seek and trust in him.


We are committed to cultivating communities of life, love and mission. Join one of our Gospel Communities around Surf Coast, or help us plant a new one!

Join Now


Jesus invites us to be used by Him in building His church. Whatever your background or skill set, there is a place for you to serve and contribute.

Serve Now


We have a big vision to know Jesus and make Jesus known in Surf Coast. One of the best ways we can contribute to this becoming a reality is through contributing some of the finance God gifts us to steward.
