In 1997 the congregations of Preston, West Preston, Ivanhoe and Northcote Churches of Christ began a three year conversation, which eventuated in their merger and the establishment of Northern Community Church of Christ. 

The four churches sold their properties and pooled their resources with a vision to be a church focused on making a positive contribution to Melbourne's northern suburbs. Since 1999, Northern has sought to practically serve our neighbourhood.


Northern is affiliated with Churches of Christ Vic/Tas. Churches of Christ seeks to be a Christian movement, which transforms culture with the message of Jesus Christ. Northern affirms the beliefs and values of Churches of Christ, which you can read about here.
