Melbourne East

City on a Hill: Melbourne East meets at Phoenix Park Community Centre in Malvern East, every Sunday, at 9 and 11AM. Here’s a bit of our story:

The city of Melbourne is a growing and sprawling city set to reach a population of five million people in 2018! Melbourne prides itself on being regularly voted the ‘World’s Most Liveable City’ and the east and south-east of Melbourne typify this liveability. With tree-lined streets, plenty of parks, schools, playgrounds, shopping districts, it’s easy to see why the centre of the population of Melbourne is in the south-eastern suburbs.

City on a Hill: Melbourne East is knowing Jesus and making Jesus known in the midst of these suburbs. We exist to show Melbournians that a true and better life can be had by trusting in Jesus and living for Him.

We launched in October 2017, and meet at Phoenix Park Community Centre, just a few hundred metres north of Chadstone Shopping Centre. Our vision is to continue to know Jesus and make Jesus known to the east and south-east of Melbourne by holding fast to biblical teaching and training; raising up humble, courageous and sacrificial leaders, cultivating communities of life, love and mission, staying committed to gospel growth and embodying God-centered generosity.

Our hope and prayer is that God would use this our church to make a difference for the glory of God in Melbourne and eternally impact the men, women and children who reside in the east and south-eastern suburbs.
