About our Family
We are a 'safe' place where you can be yourself. A place where you don’t have to believe to belong but as a result of belonging we hope that you will ultimately believe.
When we come together our goal is to be immersed in God’s life transforming PRESENCE, to experience freedom and to connect with each other as members of a loving family.
As a place of spiritual ENCOUNTER we come with hearts prepared, with an expectation that Holy Spirit will meet with us. We long to simply be in His Presence and allow the Holy Spirit to move as He so desires. This is a place where there is the tangible Presence and Power of God; manifested in healing, fresh hope, freedom, restoration, love and encouragement.
We are passionate worshippers, empowered and embraced by HOLY SPIRIT.
We see ourselves as a multigenerational and multicultural FAMILY made up of fathers, mothers, grandfathers, grandmothers, sons and daughters, who are expressing and sharing God’s unconditional love recognizing and appreciating the valuable role of spiritual fathers, mothers, and grandparents in mentoring and in bringing Godly wisdom to the table. To us family looks like people of all ages WORSHIPPING God as One Generation, absolutely enjoying each other and celebrating our time together. You will be loved unconditionally by our loving Father God to discover how you are created with a unique destiny and an identity.
We experience great FREEDOM and a sense of AWE as signs, wonders and miracles flow, demonstrations of God’s great love for everyone. As this LOVE pours out, lives are indelibly changed. When Jesus lived in Capernaum it was the radical demonstration of God’s love that caused an entire city to be transformed. We believe that this is part of the Great Commission, this spontaneous and radical love, full of joy and fresh hope that will bring healing and life to our beautiful city of Melbourne.
We are on a journey to become a people who express love through radical GENEROSITY. Generosity is a spiritual dynamic that demonstrates and also invites God’s unlimited blessing resulting in the release of supernatural provision. Generosity is expressed in friendships, supporting family, time, gifts, encouragement and finances.
For our Leaders at CTF Melbourne INTEGRITY in a primary value, along with holiness, accountability and authenticity. Our Leaders encourage others to simply LOVE and ACCEPT others, creating a place where we can all experience God’s loving PRESENCE.

Our passion is seeing people connect into relationship with Father God, to be healed, equipped, empowered and released to live in the fullness that God created each of us to be. We endeavour to live our lives constantly in the transforming presence of the Holy Spirit.
Our mission is to align peoples own personal God given destinies with that of the church. Our passion comes from our own experience of a loving Heavenly Father who has revealed His heart and from His goodness.

Our heart is for family which is expressed in relationship with their two children and five grand children.
Church in revival
Catch The Fire Melbourne is a thriving local church
that is born out of revival.
Catch the Fire Melbourne is a church born out of revival and carrying the revival DNA of hosting His Presence. There is a genuine unconditional openness which says ”Holy Spirit, whatever You want to do.” Under this open heaven there is always an expectation of a new outpouring of His amazing supernatural Presence and Power.
Revival creates awakening. The next great awakening will be like nothing we have ever seen before. It will come unexpectedly, like a great wave, sweeping across Australia and New Zealand. It will bring huge transformation and change in its wake and then proceed across the globe.
This revival will be a combination of revolution, reformation, restoration and renaissance, where “everything that can be shaken will be shaken” and millions of people will be loved into the Kingdom. This revival will not be about a singular person or a church or denomination, but a sovereign, unstoppable move of God.
What's important to us
Catch The Fire has four unique values that are threaded through all our churches and ministries.
Our core values are the underlying principles that guide us in making decisions, determining priorities, setting goals, allocating resources and carrying out programs. They are the defining characteristics of Catch The Fire and are drawn from biblical teachings.
EXPERIENCING GOD AS FATHER
Experiencing God as our true Father just like Jesus did will change our lives. Every child of God needs to feel, know, and experience the unconditional, extravagant love of Father God.
John 14:6-13, Luke 15:11-32, Romans 8:35-38
INTIMACY WITH GOD
Every follower of Jesus is designed to communicate with God. God speaks to us through a variety of ways and means. Our response is to listen, and in turn, talk to God through prayer, obey Him, and learn to be a doer of His Word.
John 10:3-4, Hebrews 1:1-2, 1 Thessalonians 5:17, James 1:22
RESTORATION OF THE HEART
Before we can truly love others, we must love ourselves and that means allowing the Spirit of God to transform our spirit, soul and body. Our Father is able to reveal to us issues & hurts that need healing. The Holy Spirit knows what we need to believe and receive in order to become whole.
2 Corinthians 7:1, 2 Corinthians 3:18, John 16:14, John 15:1, 1 Thessalonians 5:23
EMPOWERING IN THE ANOINTING
The anointing is the power of the Holy Spirit for breakthroughs from poverty, brokenness, ill health, and oppression from demonic forces, that takes us into incredible favor. We desire for all to receive these breakthroughs and then to release the anointing to others.
Luke 4:16-21, Luke 9:1-6, Luke 10:1-9
