(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.
WEEKLY UPDATE – June 30
To all members and visitors of the Westcity community
After months of watching our Westcity service in our pyjamas, we are now preparing to get dressed and meet face to face. Yes, it is happening! Starting this weekend – 5th July!
We are also keen to keep our updates short and sharp. So, without further ado, here are our top 4 tips for serving the Westcity community and beyond this week:
1. Register for weekend church service
For the next two weeks, we can have only 60 people plus children in our chapel. You can continue to watch on-line or you may be heading along to a Sunday Home (local homes hosting service online). But if you want to come to Nanson Street then you need to please register here to attend on Sunday July 5th and 12th July, as soon as possible as we have limited spaces.
We look forward to meeting together and welcoming our local community, new comers, young families and those not already connected within our church community.
Here is a video update from Phil, on ‘Westcity Coming Home from July 5th’.
2. Give to the Common Purse
June 30 is the last day for giving with tax-deductibility for the 2019/2020 financial year. We have had another fantastic response to our Common Purse appeal. It is one way we reach beyond our walls, give extravagantly and serve our world. We would love you to join us – you can donate at anytime here.
3. Livestream Sundays 10.15am. We are so happy to be able to continue to connect and care for our online community locally and around the world.
Our weekly online resources will also continue for you, throughout the week, such as Podcasts, Home Study Notes, Pastoral Notes, Weekly Updates and other initiatives. You can check all these out via The Hub on our website.
4. Serve on our Media Team
Not only are we returning to our church building for LIVE services from this weekend, but we are going to continue to maintain our on-line presence. This means we need a small team every week covering all of the AV roles. If this is your passion, interest – or potential passion or interest – then let us know and Josh will follow up with the detailed information. It’s a growing ministry area at Westcity which is making a fantastic difference. Send an email to Josh Fernandes at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find more details via The Hub on our website.
Love and blessings,
Phil and the Westcity Team
