The City Harvest Church Penang holds a strong reputation among the Christians in the northern state. It is one of the younger churches around Penang as it was established only after 2005. The City Harvest Church Penang was born through the strong faith of Pastors Saras and Felina Bany.
The 2 leaders had in 2005 returned to Penang after serving 8 years in Singapore and through the calling of the Lord and the power of prayer, they used their new home to start a cell group which grew from 6 people to 15 within 2 months and the church never looked back since.
Later on that year, the pastors needed a larger space and The Life Church was born. Using a space belonging to a Tamil Church in Fettes Park in Tanjung Tokong, The Life Church organized worship services on the evening of Saturdays and more members joined in then. In 2007, The Life Church was officially called the City Harvest Church Penang as it was associated with Singapore’s City Harvest Church.
Then, the church moved to The Bayu in Tanjung Tokong into a place it can call its own and Sunday morning sessions were held. The first Chinese cell group was started in early 2009 and this would eventually grow into becoming the City Harvest Church Penang’s own Chinese service. Later on, the church would require a larger space and a new floor at The Bayu was required in order to accommodate the Nursery, the Youth Center and other ministries.
In 2012, the City Harvest Church would move again as more space became imminent. This prompted the church to move to Level 4 of Island Plaza not far from its original location and this is where it has continued to grow into becoming one of the prominent churches in Penang today.
As how it all started for the City Harvest Church Penang, cell groups are an integral part of the organization and it has an active network of groups providing support and fellowship for its members. Besides that, the church has other ministries for children and women as well as prayer meetings.
