A gift of light and clean water

Missions is one of the core values of CityLife Church, and as a church we provide ongoing support to 12 official missions partners in nine nations across the world. Hundreds of our congregation members actively support these partners and their projects through prayer and fundraising. There are also many people within our congregation who actively carry out God’s missions calling for them as an individual, personally raising funds, going and working sacrificially to make a Kingdom impact on the communities that God has placed on their hearts.

Michael is one such member of the CityLife Church community who is doing this right now, here’s his story…

Missions Trip to Cambodia – Dec 2016 (Pt2)

Every year CityLife Church sends teams of our members to visit our missions partners all around the world. These teams work together with our local partners to be a blessing to the local communities. For more information about our missions trips, visit this page.


In December 2016, a team made up of members from our Manningham and Knox congregations, led by Youth Pastor U-Wen, left on a missions trip to Cambodia. Here’s the second of their updates from the field.

Life Group Adopts Bali Mission


New Life Group shows it’s never too soon or too small to make a start supporting missions…

Hi, we are very small new Life Group (Raymond, Mark, Jackie and Harris) at CityLife Church but we believe in giving practical expression to our Christianity. That’s part of our philosophy of being a Life Group and so we are supporting CityLife World Impact.

We know there are many other Life Groups which have been doing this on a much bigger scale for much longer  than us, but I guess our message is,  “It’s never too soon or too small to make a start.”

Turning Crisis in to Opportunity

CityLife International Church in Ethiopia has been given notice to vacate the rental property for its Burayu congregation by the end of the year. With your help, the church can transform this situation into a blessing with exciting plans for expansion and development.

Since moving from Australia to Ethiopia with their family eight years ago to plant CityLife International Church in Addis Ababa, the capital city, Paulos and Abado Djini have seen thousands of lives and dozens of communities transformed. Now, the church is poised to embark on a very exciting expansion program.

With your help they can develop the land for their Burayu site. The initial stage involves laying down a concrete slab and putting up a temporary structure to take care of immediate needs. The ultimate goal is to built a new church facility and community centre which would enable CityLife International Church to firmly establish its presence in Addis Ababa.sketch-crosscut-view-side-wordpress

Seven Days of Prayer

CityLife World Impact calls for seven days of prayer for the current situation in Ethiopia…

The weekend of 22/23 October, 2016 was a very special weekend at CityLife Church campuses all across the city of Melbourne, Australia. These two days were devoted to supporting and celebrating CityLife World Impact, the missions ministry of our church.

Many volunteers came together to set up bazaars and sausage sizzles to sell food and gift items with the proceeds going to support the work of CityLife missions partners. Thank you all for your support of our ministry.

One of the most powerful messages to come out of the event was a call by CityLife World Impact for a week of prayer for the current situation in Ethiopia.
