No. 855 - Moonah - Velocity Church

Moonah is a suburb of Greater Hobart and is located approximately 5 kilometres north of the central business district. Moonah was previously known as South Glenorchy before it was developed as a residential area in the late 19th century

The Velocity Church located on Risdon Road, Moonah, belongs to the Apostolic tradition. The Apostolic Church in Australia is now known as the “Acts Global Churches” .

The Apostolic Church is a denomination that originates from the Pentecostal movement. The term "Apostolic" represents the denomination's belief that it follows the teachings of the twelve apostles who followed Christ. With roots in the 1904–1905 Welsh Revival, it seeks to stand for first-century Christianity in its faith, practices, and government.

The Apostolic Church became established in Tasmania in the 1930’s and 10 churches are established in the State. The Moonah Velocity Church is located in the former premises of the Hazelwood School.

Additional information about this church and the building is most welcome as all articles are continually updated. I can be contacted through this page or my Facebook page "Churches of Tasmania" which is linked here: Churches of Tasmania.
