Brian Houston, the founder of the Evangelical Hillsong Church, will face court over allegedly concealing alleged child sex offences.
Police say they will allege in court that Mr Houston, 67, knew information relating to the sexual abuse of a young male in the 1970s and failed to bring that information to the attention of police.
The charge is the result of a police investigation that started in 2019.
Mr Houston is expected to appear in Downing Centre Local Court on Tuesday 5 October 2021.
More to come.
