Westcity Church

Love God | Love People | Follow Jesus



(Well, what did you expect from a church?)

We are old people and young, artists, people with disabilities, lawyers and plumbers, activists and accountants who have been captured by, and caught up in God’s Dream for the world and God’s purpose for our lives, that we see revealed in this Jesus.

Maybe we are a church for those who don’t like ‘church’. A church for those who don’t want to play religious games or be entertained  but on a good day, desire to live the love that God has shown us.



To all members and visitors of the Westcity community. Here’s an overview of what’s happening at Westcity over the next few weeks…


Common Purse 2021 – Supporting local and global projects

but they had all things in common…not a needy person among them” –Acts 4:32-35

Westcity is a faith-based community committed to looking like, and loving like, Christ. Part of this commitment means giving beyond ourselves to serve and support others in practical ways to people who may never attend our church nor hear our message.

Every year we take up an offering to distribute to local needs within our borders, as well as to global partners, building capacity and providing sustainable solutions for people in the majority world. We believe something powerful happens when we give and bless others collectively. We would love you to join with us.

Here is the video of Phil giving an overview of the Common Purse and its history and vision.

Community Life at Westcity

The word ‘life’ in our community life title is an acronym for Love, Inclusion, Faith, Everyone.

We love gathering on a Sunday, but we see our discipleship journey together as something so much more. It’s also the spaces in between each Sunday where we get to live out our faith in Jesus with one another.

Whether we are meeting for a coffee, studying the bible together in a home church, sharing meals, praying in the morning on zoom or the myriad of other gatherings that take place throughout the week, we see this as being a part of living out our vision of loving God, loving people and following Jesus.

If you’d like more information and invitations on how you can get more engaged and connected in Community Life at Westcity, or to join a Home Church or even find out more about hosting or leading one then don’t hesitate to contact us via the website. You can also check out our website for an update on the leaders, locations and times of our current Home Churches.


Next Westcity Town Hall Meeting and Community Lunch

Sunday July 25, after the service. More information coming soon.


Welcome to Westcity Dinner (W2W) 

Register Here. Friday July 30 @ 7pm, at Rob & Lois’ House in Swanbourne.

For those who are new to Westcity church, or those who have recently joined our community and would like to learn more about Westcity and how to get more engaged and connected, if and when you are ready.

When you meet a friend you have them over for a meal. At Westcity it’s no different. As we come to the communion table of Jesus each week we learn about the welcome of Christ and let’s face it, meals are the best way to extend a welcome.

The other great thing about a meal is that we get to share a bit about each other. You get to meet some of the team and we get to share a bit about how Westcity functions, what we value, what we’re up to. All of this is done around good food and wine. There’s no pressure, just family (in Christ) having a yarn.


Love and blessings,
Phil and the Westcity Team


10am @ 63 Nanson St Wembley, Perth, Western Australia

Our desire as the Westcity community is to find God’s story in our stories and our stories in God’s story. Each week, we explore scripture so that it might capture our imaginations that we would be open to the Holy Spirit’s transforming work and be equipped to live God’s love. We often give a gentle opportunity for those who haven’t said yes to God’s love to do that and to explore baptism.




10am Children’s Program at Nanson Street 

Godly Play is a great opportunity for children of all ages to listen, wonder and respond. We listen to the story, stop and wonder about the questions, then respond by doing our own work or play – each child can do their work differently.



The New Way: Sermon on the Mount 2021

"The resurrection was the first visible sign that the revolution was already under way. More signs would follow.”
N. T Wright

And his kingdom will have no end.
The Nicene Creed 325AD

It looked like death had the last word on Easter Friday but within forty-eight hours the world was forever changed. N. T. famously calls it the day the revolution begun. For the early Church it began a time of great hope and deep joy. Looking back to those earliest times, Anthony Kelly says, “Hope lives in the time after Easter. It stands in the open space of the ascension and breathes the ever-fresh air of Pentecost...”.The declaration, “He is risen” echoed again and again and soon the obvious conclusion was being drawn. If Jesus is risen, then Jesus is Lord. The new way of living, that Jesus called life in the kingdom of God, was really at hand and really liveable. It was the beginning of a world turned upside down by revolutionary love. His words burned anew in his followers throughout the world, and they still do.

Every year we join his earliest disciples and take time to listen to his words and let them kindle the same flame in our 21st century culture. We set aside the time it takes to encourage each other to put them into practice in our families and communities. In particular, the Sermon on the Mount describes the way of being that Jesus exemplified. It was his rallying cry and his hope for how the Church would live throughout the ages. Actually, it was also his command, that the Church was to be the place where His way could be authentically experienced. And not just for those who were already following him, but especially for those who were not yet living with Jesus as Lord. The Sermon on the Mount is not just an eloquent description of how life can be. It is also a solemn challenge for all of us to live it with his help, for others.

The end of all Christian belief and obedience, witness and teaching, marriage and family, leisure and work life, preaching and pastoral work is the living of everything we know about God: life, life, and more life. (Eugene Peterson)
