No. 1442 - Launceston - Redemption Hills Church

Redemption Hills Church is a relatively new independent church which was established in 2018. The church initially met at Albert Hall before relocating to the Tramsheds at Inveresk. In 2023 the church relocated to ‘Ark City Mission’ at the Killafaddy site near Waverley.

In August 2019 Launceston City Mission purchased the Killafaddy property which was built in 1974 for Tasmanian Board Mills. The building was designed by Hank Romyn and features extensive use of Blackwood, Huon Pine, Sassafras, Myrtles and Tasmanian Oak. City Mission has developed the building into a refuge for children and young adults. Called “Ark City Mission, it draws on the symbol of the biblical Ark as a place of safety. City Mission has made the building available for weekend church services.

The building has previously been used as a church by the former Launceston Community Church and from 2008 until 2014 it housed the “Community Christian Academy”.
