Find a Loving Community
Way of Jesus
Surely there’s more than this?
At some point in our lives, many of us wonder if there is a more meaningful way to live.
You might find yourself going through the motions. Stuck in the daily grind. A spectator in your own life. Left wanting so much more.
Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
Maybe you’re filled with big questions and don’t know where to turn. Perhaps you are curious about Jesus, want to reconnect with him, or know Him more completely.
Could learning about Jesus in community be exactly what you’ve been looking for?
Deepen your understanding of Jesus.
At City on a Hill: Melbourne West we believe truth, purpose and wisdom is found in Jesus.
We invite you to join us and explore authentic and life-changing faith in a loving community.
No matter your opinions, questions, experiences or background – you are welcome here.
I love Melbourne’s west, and I’m honoured to lead a church here. We’d love you to join us, as we learn about God, discover his grace, and become more like Jesus.

Carmen serves as the Ministry Coordinator at Melbourne West. Born and bred in Sydney, Carmen moved down to Melbourne in 2010 and encountered Jesus in a personal and powerful way a couple of years later. She has a heart for seeing people redeemed by the grace of God and finds great joy in witnessing others flourish in their spiritual gifts as they serve in the church. Carmen is also an artist and art therapist. In her creative and therapeutic practice, she enjoys exploring how the gospel offers meaning, hope and redemption in the realities of a broken world.
Dan is the Music Coordinator at Melbourne West, supporting the music teams as they aid our community in song and praise. He has been playing music in churches for over a decade and has a deep joy in building God-focused cultures within ministry. Dan and his wife Kat moved to City on a Hill in 2018 and were delighted to find a community after God’s heart in the west.
Dan has an Honours degree in Composition from VCA and is regularly involved in productions around Melbourne and beyond.
Khoi is the Associate Pastor of City on a Hill Melbourne West. He has a deep heart for communities of life, love and mission, as he passionately wants to see the gospel of Jesus make an impact in the western suburbs of Melbourne. Khoi’s favourite community, of course, is at home with his wife and two boys. He is an avid sports fan who supports mostly losing teams – which keeps him pretty humble (and sad).
City Kids Coordinator
Michelle serves as the City Kids Coordinator at City on a Hill Melbourne West. Michelle previously worked in health care but has loved the switch to spiritual care. She loves Jesus and is passionate to share that love with those around her. Michelle loves sharing the gospel with the kids, showing them how every part of the Bible points to Jesus, and how we need Jesus. Married to Paul, they have 3 mini Deroons running around at home: Elijah, Zachariah and Kaley. They are a homeschooling and home renovating family. She unwinds by listening to sermons and playing match 3 games or trying to play the piano. Not your typical coffee snob, she likes her coffee decaffeinated, half strength and lactose free.
