Place of worship prediction

30 Jul 2013

A pentecostal megachurch is expected to develop a place of worship in Docklands

Docklands News understands that Places Victoria will soon announce CityLife Church as the successful bidder

In August last year Places Victoria called for expressions of interest from parties interested in developing a place of worship at the corner of Footscray Rd and Little Docklands Drive.

It’s understood that three parties were shortlisted for the project – the Faith Communities Council of Victoria (FCCV), Planetshakers and CityLife Church.

The FCCV withdrew its bid in mid-December last year, while Planetshakers is also understood to be out of the mix, leaving just CityLife Church in the running.

CityLife Church is a pentecostal, non-denominational church based in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs.

It’s a multi-site congregation, with services in Knox, Casey and Manningham and is considered a megachuch, with an average of 2000 or more people attending weekend services.

The church, formerly known as Waverley Christian Fellowship, was founded in 1967 by pastor Richard Holland.

It is now led by Pastor Mark Conner.

It has a strong focus on community groups and events, tying in with Places Victoria’s request for bids that would demonstrate a community benefit.

The church is also  associated with Waverley Christian College, which is located on the church’s property.

Docklands News did not contact CityLife Church for comment as it is bound by a confidentiality agreement as part of the bid process.

It is not yet known when Places Victoria will announce the successful bidder.
