Updated 27 March 11am

As of last weekend, our church services and ministry events are all online. Our weekend service will be streamed on citylife.church/online, YouTube and Facebook at the following times: Saturday 4pm & 6pm | Sunday 9am & 11am.

Our church offices are only open to staff who are not able to work at home. We held our first staff meeting completely online and even managed corporate prayer and worship together!

All our ministries are putting in place alternate options to move ministry events online and keep people connected.

Let’s continue to gather as Life Groups online. While we can’t gather in buildings or homes as congregations or groups we can still give hope, bring encouragement and show love to the people around us online in so many creative ways. We don’t want anyone to feel alone or isolated at this time.

Psalm 91 reminds us that God is in control of our lives and that he cares deeply about each of us. We are praying for His protection over you and your loved ones. Let's keep each other in prayer daily and be in prayer for those affected by COVID-19: healing for those quarantined or infected with the virus, protection over frontline healthcare team members, wisdom for all those in the various authorities handing the situation.

Needs of Community

Thank you to those who have given so generously to our pantry last week!

With the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we are seeing an increased need from those who are disadvantaged and vulnerable. Help us continue to serve our community.

We would love donations of the following items:

  • jam and peanut butter
  • pasta sauce
  • small cereal
  • large tuna canned
  • 1 litre long life milk
  • 1kg rice
  • deodorant and dishwashing detergent

Thank you for your generosity and support!

Please take a few moments to watch this message from Andrew as he shares from his heart about our response to the pandemic and prays for us.

Updated 18 March 7pm

As of this weekend, our church services will be online. We will not be holding services in any of our venues due to the restriction on meetings of more than 100 people announced by the Federal government on 18th March. Our service will be streamed on citylife.church/online, YouTube and Facebook at the following times: Saturday 4pm & 6pm | Sunday 9am & 11am.

Our church offices remain open (albeit with reduced staff presence) and we are here to support you throughout the week.

All our ministries are putting in place alternate options to continue to keep people connected and move ministry online. Further information will be forthcoming from ministries.

Let’s continue to gather as Life Groups, as we are able to physically, virtually (via Zoom or Skype, etc.), or a combination of both. When we meet physically let’s all take the necessary hygiene precautions.

Whilst we focus on some of the practical responses, let’s also bear in mind that this is such an important opportunity for us to give hope, bring encouragement and show love to the people around us. We don’t want anyone to feel alone or isolated at this time. Psalm 91 reminds us that God is in control of our lives and that he cares deeply about each of us. We are praying for His protection over you and your loved ones. Let's keep each other in prayer daily and be in prayer for those affected by COVID-19: healing for those quarantined or infected with the virus, protection over frontline healthcare team members, wisdom for all those in the various authorities handing the situation.

Please keep an eye on your emails, follow us on social media or email us info@citylife.church if you have any questions.

  • jam and peanut butter
  • pasta sauce

Updated 13 March 5pm

We are monitoring and reviewing the latest developments on COVID-19 and the impact on our communities and how we run our church services. All our church services and programs will continue to run as normal, but do expect some changes in the way we do communion, offering and hospitality to protect the health and safety of all. Watch this update from our Senior Minister, Andrew Chisholm.

Also at our Knox site we will be limiting our attendance to 500 people at all services commencing March 21/22. This is in response to the government's announcement today restricting public meetings to less than 500 people from Monday, March 16. For those not attending in person, we will be providing live-streamed worship services from March 21/22. Information on our live-streamed services will be available on this page next week. At Manningham, Casey, and Whittlesea sites and our Chinese services, our services will continue as normal as our service attendances are under 500.


Let's pray for people affected by COVID-19: healing for those quarantined or infected with the virus, protection over frontline healthcare team members, wisdom for all those in the various authorities handing the situation, and the church communities to be a light and blessing to all.

We encourage you to continue to attend our regular church services and programs. Please take care of your health and protect others by practicing good personal hygiene.

Please stay home if you:
  • are unwell or experiencing flu-like symptoms.
  • have recently returned from an affected area.
  • have been in contact with an infected person.

Stay up to date with the latest information from Victoria's Department of Health and Human Services here.
