City to City Australia
Our pastor, Nat Clarke is an assessed and endorsed church planter with City to City Australia, a gospel-centered church planting network that exists to help leaders build gospel movements in Australian cities. The vision of City to City Australia is to join with God to see major city centres in Australia worshiping Jesus Christ as Lord so that God will renew them spiritually, socially and culturally to the glory of God the Father.
CTC Australia is part of City to City Asia Pacific, which is, in turn, part of Redeemer City to City in New York City. The movement began out of the vision of Redeemer Presbyterian Church to see a renewal of Gospel-centred church planting in the great urban cities of the world, and is very much connected to the former pastor of Redeemer, Dr Timothy Keller. http://www.citytocityaustralia.org.au/planting/
We are affiliated with Soma Australia, a family of churches who want to see believers living radically God-centered lives together in gospel communities on mission. Soma Australia partners with Soma in North America, which originates out of Soma Tacoma, in Washington State, USA.
