The roots of MyCity Church span more than 25 years ago, when we were known as Boyne Island Christian Fellowship. In 1985, while studying at Bible College and working on a farm in Pyramid Hill, Victoria, Howard James felt God calling him to cut ties with farming and move his family to Queensland. Through prayer, surrender, and miraculous housing provision, God made it clear to Howard and his wife Sandy that He truly was calling them to Queensland. Even though they were unsure of what the future would hold, they accepted God's calling on their lives, Howard resigned from farming, and they relocated their family to Boyne Island in 1986. Five years later, Howard and Sandy became the founding pastors of Boyne Island Christian Fellowship, now known as MyCity Church.

Our Name: Why "MyCity"?
It's not uncommon for people to think that church is a place where Christians go to hide from the world, but we believe the Church is a group of people who are called to save the world. We became "MyCity" because we wanted to be a Church filled with people who took ownership of their city. Our goal was for our church to think, "My friends, my family, my neighbours, my city – my responsibility!"
We see growing churches of engaged people; connecting, growing, and serving to save the world.
This is how we roll at MyCity:
We Connect To God
We Invite People
We Get Involved
We Grow, Together
We Step Up
We Would Bleed For This
MyCity Church is a part of the Australian Christian Churches movement.
