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

    In 2016 at Church Hill we’re spending a year with Jesus, and we’d love you to join us. To help you on your way, we've created a daily devotional app, called A Year with Jesus. Each day we’re seeking to encounter Jesus in his word, and frame our day around that encounter. Why not download it today?

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 2017, 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

  • Acts VI

    Acts VI exists to serve those in need within our congregations with pastoral support, biblical wisdom, practical budgeting, recommendations of counselling services and temporary financial assistance.

     

    To access these services, you need to have been regularly coming to a Church Hill congregation for at least three months. Applications for assistance are dealt with in a confidential manner by the small team who run the ministry.

     

    If you, or someone you know, need help, please contact the team.

     



  • Hope for Sydney

    Church Hill partners with an organisation called Hope for Sydney, which exists to create collaborative relationships between churches, charities and other not-for-profit organisations.

     

    We know many Christians want to serve, but don’t know how. That’s where Hope for Sydney comes infinding opportunities for service and connecting volunteers to them.

     

Engaging the city

  • Gotham Fellowship

    As a city church, we want to equip workers to bring the fullness of the gospel to bear on their work and not just their weekends. Through the Gotham Fellowship we provide the theological, spiritual, and relational foundations required for meaningful and sustainable integration of faith and work. Gotham is a year-long program originally created by Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York.

     

    We offer the program to full-time workers with at least two years of working experience. Applications open around August each year for commencement in February the following year.



 

  • 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
