Our story began in 2007 with a small team and a big vision to make a difference in Melbourne for the good of all people and the glory of God. Gripped by the good news of Jesus, we prayed that God would establish a community of faith that would experience his beauty, truth, and relevance in a timely and contextual way. Like a “city on a hill” that shines in the midst of darkness, so we wanted the light, love and life of God to emanate brightly in and through our lives for our good, the good of our city and the glory of his name.
Since our inception, we have witnessed a special work of God’s grace. We are now a movement of eight churches, across five cities, united together by a vision to reach ten cities with the beauty, truth and relevance of Jesus by planting 50 churches. City on a Hill is a movement of men, women and children, united by a simple mission: To know Jesus and make Jesus known.
