7NEWS Spotlight on Channel 7 – From Hillsong to Hellsong, shocking new revelations about Brian Houston’s megachurch

Victims speak out in 7NEWS Spotlight’s season return tonight

It was once hailed as one of the most influential religious organisations in the Western World, a global megachurch, preaching a rock’n’roll brand of modern Christianity.

But just as quickly as Hillsong and its controversial leaders became superstars and super powerful, child sex abuse scandals would bring down its founder, Frank Houston, implicate his son, Brian, and dirty the faith’s squeaky-clean image.

Now, in an explosive season return of 7NEWS Spotlight 8.30pm tonight on Channel 7 and 7plus, guest reporter Tom Tilley lifts the lid on shocking new allegations of abuse and corruption that will shake the church to its core.

Tilley, author of the best-selling story of Pentecostal perversion, Speaking in Tongues, partners with investigative journalist Liam Bartlett to track down Hillsong’s disgraced leader, Brian and his wife Bobbie in their new US bolthole, as the couple try to resurrect their personal fortunes and stage their own “second coming”.

Also on tonight’s program, as a nation mourns the loss of a global superstar, 7NEWS Spotlight pays tribute to the late Barry Humphries and the comedic characters who made him an icon.
