Melbourne West Church
No physical services this Sunday. You can join us on Zoom at coah.co/melbwest-zoom at 11am for our local livestream service.
Due to recent COVID restrictions in VIC we will not be gathering in person. Normally, we gather each Sunday as a community to hear God’s word, sing, pray and spend time together. Our service times are 9am and 10.45am at Hoyts Highpoint (Rosamond Road, Maribyrnong).
If you come along you’ll find a real range of people; young, old; students, workers, retirees; families, single people – and all coming from an array of cultures and backgrounds. All are welcome, so come along; we’d love to meet you!
During the week, we scatter throughout the western suburbs of Melbourne in smaller Gospel Communities to share life, give and receive love, and grow in maturity together.
Our Gospel Communities are all across the west, so there’s sure to be one near you. If not, we are continually raising up new leaders and starting new Gospel Communities, so one is not far away. We bring together people across ages and life-stages so we better experience the diversity of God’s people. We still have Gospel Communities meeting online at the moment, so get in touch if you are interested in a digital Gospel Community at this time.
At our Gospel Communities, we dive into the passage of the Bible that we looked at on Sunday. We also share meals together, connect on a deeper level, pray for each other, and support one another in reaching out faithfully for Jesus to our wider world.
We are passionate about seeing the next generation know Jesus and make Jesus known, and so each Sunday our City Kids gather during both our morning and afternoon services. We have a wonderful team of volunteers who lead the program, providing fun, interactive learning experiences for kids in creche (10 months-3 years), pre-school (4-5 years), and lower (prep-grade 3) and upper primary (grade 4-5). Several of our volunteers have experience and training teaching kids with special needs. If you’re new to City Kids, come a little early, so you can sign in your children and meet our team!
City Youth is designed to form a community for your teenagers that they love being a part of and want to invite their friends along to. We think it’s important to provide a space where they can have fun, build friendships, and ask deep questions about life and faith. City Youth meets throughout the year on Friday nights, and we’ve just finished up for 2020. We hope to resume meeting in person as school begins in 2021. To find out more email us below.
MUMS AND BUBS
We have lots of families at Melbourne West, and we know some of the challenges facing young mums – and so we’ve set up a Gospel Community specifically for mums with young kids. We normally meet at a fantastic local neighbourhood centre in Newport - but during lockdown we’ve moved online. For more details email us below.
We want to support you in your Christian faith, and so training is integral to our mission. We offer a variety of training events and courses which can encourage and equip you in growing your faith. These include Introducing Jesus - our Christianity course, women’s events, men’s events, and a Marriage Preparation course. Our goal is to disciple and equip everyone at City on a Hill to know Jesus and make Jesus known.
PRAYER AND PASTORAL CARE
Prayer is fundamental to the Christian life, and so we want to provide space for all people to speak with their Creator. We have regular Zoom prayer meetings 7.30am Monday to Friday, and it’s a wonderful way to spend time with God and get to know others. If you’re keen, jump on to Zoom link.
We all have different challenges and opportunities in life, and we want to provide support and care through every season. If you’d like to speak to someone please get in touch.
Our mission is to ‘know Jesus and make Jesus known’ – but how do we actually do that? SALT is a training program designed to help everyday people get excited about their faith and learn how to share it with others. For more details email us below.
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. 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.
