Yes, it's true - At Hillsong Church, we have begun plans towards planting a church in MELBOURNE.
After allowing this possibility to stir in my heart for several months and after some vigorous vision planning and discussions with key members of our team, we have decided that the time is right for us to make some serious plans to plant Hillsong Melbourne. We are VERY excited about the possibility of building from the ground up; I really believe that Hillsong Melbourne will be a thriving representation of our church right in the heart of this growing city.
Why Melbourne? Obviously it is a great city; reputed to soon become Australia's largest. There are so many areas of Australian life and culture that are synonymous with Melbourne and like any large and cosmopolitan city, there are so many people to reach and so much potential to be realised. I believe it is the right time for us to do our part to see God's great Church flourish in this world-class metropolis.
