In 2013, what was then known as Moonee Valley Christian Church came under the leadership of Senior Pastors Craig & Nadia Clark, who renamed the church Life Melbourne.
Eight years later, at the start of 2021, they felt led by God to expand, searching for another property to lease. God supernaturally led them to purchase land along the Maribyrnong River in West Melbourne.
Since then, after many miracles a remarkable transformation had taken place with a new home for Life Melbourne created, from a former crane storage warehouse to a vibrant and welcoming worship centre. But as Senior Pastors Craig & Nadia Clark said “We are not here to renovate a building, we are here to restore a city”.
Located adjacent to Dynon Road and a West Gate tunnel offramp, the new property offers accessibility from all areas of Melbourne. Primarily zoned for industrial use, the zoning also allows for a place of worship, cafés and childcare centres. The site also houses a wedding reception venue and an artist collective. Future plans envision the location being used asa multi-purpose community hub.
Along with the many faithful and generous members of the Life community who contributed so much, CCFS has been delighted to provide funding and partner with an inspiring church.

Pastor Craig stated “Life church is a testament to the dedication of the individuals who made this vision a reality, and it symbolizes the hope, unity, and the promise of a brighter future for all those who walk through its doors.”
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesian s 3:20-21 NKJV
