No. 1054 - Hobart - Hobart City Church of Christ

Hobart City Church of Christ is situated in a building converted for use as a church on a site between Goulburn and Liverpool Streets in the central business district.

The church was established in 1872 and originally worshipped in the Christians Chapel in Collins Street. It moved to the present site in 1991. The history of the original building will be the subject of another article on ‘Churches of Tasmania’.

The Church of Christ arrived in Tasmania in the early 1870s. Initially the denomination was simply known as the ‘Christians' then from 1885 as 'Disciples of Christ' and finally as 'Churches of Christ'. The Churches of Christ believe that Christian communities should be similar to those described in the New Testament; simple and with autonomous congregations. The Church of Christ has similarities with the [Open] Christian Brethren, although it is influenced by American rather than British churches.

Additional information about this church is welcomed as all articles are updated. I can be contacted through this page or my Facebook page "Churches of Tasmania" which is linked here: <Churches of Tasmania>.
