No. 982 - North Hobart - River City Church

The suburb of North Hobart, as the same suggests, is on the northern fringe of the city. It has evolved into a mixed residential and commercial area since it was developed in the 1830s.

The River City Church is situated on Lefroy Street in a church built in 1924 by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The building was later used as Lutheran church until it was sold to the Full Gospel Church in 1974.

River City Church is now associated with the ‘Acts Global Churches’; previously known as the Apostolic Church of Australia. This denomination is a part of the pentecostal movement. The term "Apostolic" reflects the church's belief that it follows the teachings of the twelve apostles. With roots in the 1904–1905 Welsh Revival, it sought to revive first-century Christianity in its faith, practices, and government.

Additional information about this church 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.
