Our ministries

Church is more than a Sunday service. Each week, people gather together outside of our services to learn together, serve together, care for each other, and be creative together.

Making disciples

  • Community Groups

    If you come to a Sunday service, you’ll notice that people are really kind, but it’s still not easy to connect. That’s what community groups are for. They meet midweek, and they’re places where we learn, pray, care, eat, serve and live.

    Community Groups are at the centre of our vision for church, so before you do anything else at church, we recommend getting into a community group. Groups meet in the city and surrounding suburbs and there are different types of groups to suit different people. 

  • Serve

    You’re needed.

     

    Really. From serving on a Sunday at a service to serving behind the scenes midweek, church is made up of people who use their gifts to serve others. If you’ve been to a Church Hill service, you’ve been served by these people. And more servers are always needed.

     

    Most of our serving happens in teams, which means serving is not only a way to use your gifts, but it’s also a way to grow in community. There is so much that God could do through us if we all committed to serving each other and the city.

In your own words, tell us how you'd like to serve


 

  • A Year With Jesus

    Want to get to know Jesus more deeply this year? Download Church Hill’s daily devotional app ‘A Year With Jesus’ in the app store. You can catch up on last week’s talks in the ‘library tab’ or simply join us on Monday for the next instalment in the Gospel of Matthew.

Helping the hurting

  • City Care Lunch

    In 2010, a member of our church made a suggestion: let’s not keep talking about serving the marginalised, let’s just do something.

     

    We did. And from that has grown a Sunday lunch that happens six times a year for over 100 men and women who live on the margins: economically, psychologically, socially and culturally.

     

    The idea is simple. Church Hill puts on a big barbecue with steaks, gourmet salads and tasty desserts, and we sit with our guests and talk. There are clothes and toiletries to take, provided you get in quick. It’s a practical and meaningful way of sharing the gospel of Jesus.

     

    In 2020, we’re also running Bible and Breakfast. We invite the homeless community who live near church to join us for bacon, eggs, juice and a short devotion from the gospels, on the Tuesday mornings following each lunch

     

    City Care & Covid-19


    This recent article highlights the plight of people living on the streets of Sydney with the rise of Covid-19. The situation isn’t great. Our City's marginalised run a higher risk of contracting the virus and many food vans and homeless services are drying up due to a lack of volunteers, economic upheaval and the health risks involved.

    After seeking advice from Sydney City Council the City Care team is determined to double-down on our efforts to support our City Care regulars during this difficult season.


    Our Plan for City Care Lunch on Sunday 19 April

    City Care will run on a takeaway-only basis gifting shopping bags filled with hygiene essentials, non-perishable food items and ‘groceries only’ gift cards to all-comers. Excess bags will be distributed at several homelessness hot-spots throughout the City.

    We will also seek contact details from our regulars and encourage them to let us know how we can help them more specifically over the coming months.

    For more information contact the City Care team by email citycare@churchhillanglican.com



  • Community Care

    In this season of physical distancing we want to continue to love our neighbours.

  • Acts VI

    Are you having some financial difficulty right now and are a member of Church Hill? Perhaps due to COVID19? Perhaps you don’t have any other means to pay a bill, or get some groceries, or something else? 

    Some time ago, the Parish Council set up a ministry called ‘ACTS V1’. In Acts 6:1-7, the Apostles set up a simple way for the widows who needed help, to get help, so that the Gospel could go forward. ACTS 6 is our way to help distribute money, given by church members, to members of our church in need.

    The purpose is specific: If you have a specific need, then we’ve love you to fill in the form below. You don’t need to get specific. A sentence will do. 

    Then, either Emma Collett (an Assistant Minister) or Justin Moffatt (Senior Minister) will call you to hear a little of your situation. We will pray with you and see if we can help. There are a few things we will ask you, but it’s not onerous, and it’s not invasive. It will remain confidential between you and Emma/Justin, and it will be ‘signed off’ by the Acts 6 Officer, Greg Fendler (from 10:15am). While there are limits to how much we can give, each case will be assessed individually.

    If you, or someone you know, need help, please fill in the form below.



Engaging the city

  • The arts

    Music and the visual arts have always been friends of the city. But they’re also something that we have a special interest in: God is creative and he gives creative gifts in order to bless the world.

     

    Church Hill has deliberately sought to foster the creative arts within our community: using the buildings as venues for concerts, hosting an annual art show, and creating weekly art-pieces called zines (4pm and 6pm) which showcase artistic interpretations of the content of our services. Keep up to date by visiting our 'What's on' page. 

Multiplying gospel communities

We work with partners and friends to establish new communities in the City and surrounding suburbs. We seek to be on mission, and to help new churches begin and grow.

We'd love to meet you
