WE ARE A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO ARE ALL ABOUT 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 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. Here you can find out more on our vision, values, beliefs, practices and team.

 

Hi Westcity community, visitors and new comers

Update: July 5

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 a Common Purse 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. Here’s an update on our 2022 offering….

Thank You Westcity! Together we raised $46,180 this year for the Common Purse – Local and Global!

What an incredible reflection of our desire to love God and people and follow Jesus!  I’m so encouraged that we are committed to such a practical demonstration of this and that our “Common” purse enables us to do it together!

June church services were packed full of sharing some of the many simple yet transformational ways the Common Purse brings love and justice and peace and joy both here in Perth and around the world. If you missed them, check out the details on the ‘Giving‘ page of our website.

A big thanks to the people who serve on the local and global purse committees; Danielle, Penny, Nina, Craig, Ky, Michelle, Rob & Loris. It’s an honor to work with, and learn from, such an amazing group of people, without whom there would not be such diligent oversight  in the way the Common Purse functions, nor the beautiful relationships we have with many of our longer term partners.

The team look forward to sharing more ways our purse funds are, in our Westcity Way, helping us to live the ‘Go of Christ’.  May we never tire of it!

Road to Promise

During July and August’s sermon series, Road to Promise, we will be looking at the lives of three ancient Biblical characters to explore how their walking then, can help our walking now. For each, we will explore how they walked personally, in community, and in the service of others. Our hope is that these three key foci will help the Westcity community in our journey of pilgrimage, to experience healthy spiritualityhealthy community, and healthy support of others.

You are so welcome to join us on any Sunday at 10am, listen to our Sunday Podcasts from home, or via any of the invites below:

Biblical Literacy Discussion Group – Book of Revelation Starts Aug 2

 

Townhall Meeting & Community Lunch Aug 7

It’s our time to gather again and chat about the practical side of church, as well as celebrate the funds we raised together for our Common Purse 2022. While we eat lunch together, we will also update you on how we are travelling along on our pilgrimage, and other important church community happenings.

 

New Online Giving Platform

Recently we have been talking about our church finances and  discussing how to support Westcity as our home and community. We have been asking that everyone contributes financially to make sure we stay in a place of strength and that the ongoing support of the church doesn’t get left to just a few. You can listen HERE to Phil’s audio on ‘Why Give’. You can give via this Tithe.ly link by logging in and selecting Westcity Church.

 

Love and blessings,
Phil and the Westcity Team

Welcome to Pilgrimage Dinner

Welcome to our Westcity Pilgrimage. The journey of walking the road to a maturing faith and personal wholeness in Christian community. Together as a church, we plan on going somewhere. Encouraging each other, serving together, being a city on a hill.

Let’s talk through this journey together over a meal. The next dinner is on Sunday July 24, @ 7pm. Free registrations HERE.

The Westcity Stories Podcast is here…it’s a beautiful opportunity to hear the stories of people in our local church community. We talk about people’s early life, faith, fulfilment & passions, perceived injustices and we ask for an everyday life tip to live life well.

Chin: A humble and thoughtful guy, and a much loved part of the Westcity community. He kindly shares his story of how Jesus has become more central to his faith and his passion for every person feeling they are seen. Jen: Listen to how Jen loves well and brings beauty into the world. Peter shares his experiences of facing death and how he is humbly looking forward to God’s recognition at the end of his earthly life. Mark tells about the life lessons he learnt in the jungle. Leah tells of her controversial childhood, dreams of becoming an actress and how she’s found fulfilment in her career. Andy: What a guy (and a great head of hair). Dot our longest serving church member.

CHILDREN’S CHURCH

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.

CURRENT SERMON SERIES

Road to Promise: July & August 2022

“…the territory I thought I was helping to chart was actually discovered a long time ago by my ancestors”(Peter Rollins).

One of the most helpful aspects of the Biblical narrative is that it tracks the spiritual progress of famous characters in a way that we can find meaning for today. This amounts to looking for ways of being, then that can be lived in the here and now.

During July and August's sermon series, Road to Promise, we will be looking at the lives of three ancient Biblical characters to explore how their walking then can help our walking now. For each, we will explore how they walked personally, in community, and in the service of others.

Our hope is that these three key foci will help the Westcity community in our journey of pilgrimage, to experience healthy spirituality, healthy community, and healthy support of others.

Morning Prayer

Morning Prayer with Phil: Join us via this zoom link, every morning from 7am – 7:30am (Monday – Friday). The zoom password is ‘prayer’.
Each of us read the scriptures to ourselves, think about what we have read, have some time stilling ourselves before God, and then a few minutes blessing and praying for one another before we enter the day.

Grace produces gratitude and gratitude gives gladly.

2 Corinthians 8:7 (NIV)
