CityLife Church is a multi-site, Pentecostal megachurch located in Melbourne, Australia, with weekly services in the municipalities of Knox, Casey, Manningham and Whittlesea. Weekly services are also held in Mandarin and Cantonese at the Knox site. CityLife is the largest church in Melbourne and second-largest in Australia. It has a strong emphasis on gathering in small groups called life groups. Its leadership team is headed by Senior Minister, Andrew Hill.
The church was established as Waverley Mission in 1967 by Richard Holland. In 1981, the church name was changed to Waverley Christian Fellowship and the following year, Parkmore Full Gospel Church and its Christian school (now Waverley Christian College) merged with it. In 1986, Kevin Conner became Senior Minister of the church (then about 600 members). Then in 1995, Mark Conner, Kevin's son, was appointed Senior Minister. In February 2017, Mark Conner handed over the senior minister role to Andrew Hill.
In April 2006, CityLife Church Casey was established, followed in March 2008 by CityLife Church Manningham. On 18 November 2013, Open House Christian Fellowship in Whittlesea joined with CityLife to become CityLife Church Whittlesea.
Today, CityLife is a multisite strong church. CityLife plays host to over 10 services across Melbourne at Knox, Casey, Manningham and Whittlesea. Major building works are underway at the Knox campus and a new Casey building was completed in 2016.
CityLife Church also runs CityLife Community Care which provides a range of community services including counselling services, health-related services, emergency accommodation and other courses and support programs.
