Our Story


In 1982, Pastors Peter and Bev Mortlock, along with their family and a handful of people, pioneered City Impact Church with a vision to reach a nation and a generation who really didn’t understand the amazing dynamic of being a Christ-follower. Their contemporary approach and empowerment of others grew the church into what we see today. Their North Shore Campus now has a purpose-built church facility with a sanctuary seating 2000 people, constructed primarily by volunteers. This campus is also the home of City Impact Church School, two Childcare Centres, an Arts Academy, TV Studios and much more. City Impact Church now consists of multi-site campuses across the globe, as well as mission-based churches. Their TV show has screened in New Zealand for more than a decade and is now available in many nations, as well as online. Well respected by the Christian community, Pastors Peter and Bev have had the privilege of ministering internationally at many churches and world-wide conferences. Pastors Peter and Bev have two married sons and six grandchildren. Together, they have diligently ignited a passion for Jesus Christ and His Church in multiple nations and generations.
