(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 15
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.
Morning Prayer – Join Us on Zoom
Part of community life at Westcity is to gather together to be with Jesus through prayer and scripture reading each morning.
Join us on zoom, every morning from 7am – 7:30am (Monday – Friday). The zoom password is ‘prayer’.

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
