Normally, we meet at Phoenix Park Community Centre (22 Rob Roy Rd) in Malvern East but during this season we are gathering in the comfort of our homes. We are a community from all sorts of backgrounds—churched and unchurched, white collar and blue collar, old and young—to hear the best news in the world, that Jesus has lived, died and risen for us.
GOSPEL COMMUNITIES ONLINE
During this lockdown season our community gathers online in smaller Gospel Communities to share life, give and receive love, and be on mission together.
Our Gospel Communities meet all over Melbourne's eastern suburbs on different days and nights of the week. They bring together people across ages and life-stages so we better experience the diversity of God’s people.
At our Gospel Communities we dive into the passage of the Bible that we looked at on Sunday, connect on a deeper level, pray for each other, and support one another in reaching out faithfully for Jesus to our wider world.
City Kids is our children’s ministry that operates during our Sunday services. Like our services, City Kids exists to gather children together and disciple them to 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 this season, kids aged 3-12 years are invited to join City Kids Connect each Sunday at 9.30am on Zoom. City Kids Connect is our live, online program run by our City Kids Coordinator and a team of leaders, and is full of bible based games, fun, lessons and activities.
In addition, each Sunday we release weekly episodes of City Kids TV. CKTV is a place for you kids to have fun and learn about Jesus.
City Youth is designed to form a community of life, love and maturity that points high-schoolers to the beauty, truth and relevance of Jesus. It’s a space where they can have fun, build friendships, and ask deep questions about life and faith.
During this season of restrictions due to COVID, City Youth meets online each Friday night during school term. High school aged students are invited to join us on Zoom. Contact us to find out more.
Throughout the year we host several training events that seek to help you live all of your life in light of the gospel.
These events include deeper dives into the context of a book of the Bible (eg. the context of the book of Acts), an evangelistic exploration of a cultural moment (eg. unpacking a popular movie) or a practical course for a particular life stage (eg. marriage or pre-marriage).
Many Rooms is City on a Hill’s mercy ministry - a practical expression of care and support for those who are disadvantaged and vulnerable in our city. It operates across all City on a Hill churches, through our national-based programs; The Living Room and Care Pack Initiative.
During this season, we’ve also launched the Sewing Team that makes and distributes masks for those in need, and The Pantry that helps provides pantry and personal items to international students who are currently living in Australia with no access to government support. Contact us to find out more.
In addition, our Melbourne churches, work together to serve Melbourne’s homeless and disadvantaged. Normally, our Many Rooms Kitchen, provides nutritious meals and community for Melbourne’s homeless and disadvantaged on Friday nights and Saturday mornings. However at the moment our Kitchen is closed and instead we are delivering meals and care packs to the vulnerable we know.
Find out about how you can get involved and explore your gift of service and mercy through Many Rooms.
