City North Church, Glenorchy
Who Are We?
In 2021, a few of us began meeting together with the intent of planting a new F.I.E.C Church. Since March 2021, that 'few' has grown to about 35 adults, 10 teenagers, and 20 children. We are City North Church and we are excited to minister amongst the people of Glenorchy. Our name reminds us remain focussed on preaching Jesus to the suburbs north of Hobart City.
We want to see:
1. A hub of vibrant and active churches proclaiming Jesus Christ as Lord in the Northern suburbs.
2. Cultural renewal through a spiritual conversion: We believe that communities can change as souls are saved. This is not mere social justice: this is a complete person overhaul. As members of the north are transformed by the gospel, their lives will also be transformed in visible tangible ways also. We expect to see this within the next 20 years as kids come through kids ministry and teens into adult ministry at our church.
3. Local people saved, transformed and trained to become leaders and members of a new church plant in the Bridgewater / GageBrook area by 2030.
Why your giving matters
Those who know Hobart know the Northern Suburbs for it's beautiful Derwent River outlook, breathtaking mountain views and, tragically, it's desperate social needs. Unemployment, homelessness and poverty all add the ever-growing crisis we face in Glenorchy. We do believe, though, that the gospel of Jesus Christ can and will give locals a rock-solid future. Therefore the gospel must be preached and people must be saved. In giving you are helping us preach the gospel in one of the poorest areas in Australia. We may, one day, become financially self sufficient, however if we don’t, your support ensures we can keep going. Your giving is really making a difference!
