No. 819 - Lutana - Revival Centres Church

Lutana is a northern suburb of Hobart located on the western shore of the Derwent River and adjacent to the Risdon zinc smelter and refinery. Lutana was originally called Risdon Rise. Following a naming competition run by the Electronic Zinc Company in 1920, when building their new housing estate, the name Lutana was chosen. Lutana is an aboriginal work for ‘moon’.

The Lutana Revival Centre is located in a hall at the end of Lucinda Parade on a hilltop overlooking Lutana and the Derwent River. The church was established in 2012. 

The Revival Centre is a part of Revival Centres International, a pentecostal church which back to 1948. Most pentecostal churches have fractious and complex histories of schisms and this is also true of Revival Centres International. The movement which was founded by Lloyd Longfield has grown into an international church with its headquarters in Melbourne and has centres in 22 countries. Over the years we’ve been known as Revival Centres of Australia, Revival Centres International, and more recently Revival Centres Church.

The Church has a strong emphasis on the need to show evidence of glossolalia or "speaking in tongues”. Revival Centres do not affiliate with any other religious organisation and are not a member of the World Council of Churches.
