Westcity Church

Love God | Love People | Follow Jesus

WESTCITY HUB

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.

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.

Story 1: ‘Dot’, our longest serving church member. Dot’s story starts back in the 1940s and still has plenty of episodes to run! Live from Sept 15.

Story 2: ‘Andy’. What a guy (and a great head of hair). Live from Oct 14.

Story 3: ‘Leah’. This “cool chick” who just bought her first skateboard, tells of her controversial childhood, dreams of becoming an actress and how she’s found fulfilment in her career. Leah also shares of her love of connecting with people and telling their stories….sounds a bit like Jesus? Live from Nov 10.

Story 4: ‘Mark’ tells about the life lessons he learnt in the jungle. He also shares thoughts on his calling, of serving and supporting people, as a HR Manager. A true gentleman, who glorifies God and makes a positive difference in people’s lives. Live from Dec 8.

Podcasts available below (on our Homepage).

SUNDAY SERVICE

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.

Everyone is welcome and if you are unable to join us in person, you can listen to any of our Sunday sermons, via podcast, on our Homepage or on any of these platforms Apple Podcasts, Spotify Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Amazon Music Podcasts.

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

Arrival

“So we begin with Jesus. Jesus is the revelation of the God who created heaven and earth; he is also the revelation of the God who is with us, Immanuel” (Eugene H Peterson).

Advent is the beginning of the church year. While most people treat it as a preparation for Christmas (and of course it is), Advent more aptly prepares us for the coming of Christ to us as Emmanuel, and his final return to put all things to rights.

Karl Barth put it beautifully when he famously said that Jesus’ divinity was most clearly shown, “in His way into the far country in which the Lord became a servant”. He thought of Jesus arrival into broken humanity as a picture of the Prodigal son in reverse. The eternal Son comes to the “far country” to find his brothers and sisters and raise them from brokenness to new life in the new kingdom. So much more than Christmas eve and Christmas day!

In other words, Jesus’ birth signifies more than one beginning. All the “beginnings” are brought together and we begin to live in what God has done and is doing. Jesus began his incarnational work on Earth and we begin ours, till he returns.

This is why Advent is also seen as a “penitential” season and includes clearing the decks of superfluous stuff, to adjust our loyalties and priorities in preparation for Christ’s birth for us, and His life in us.

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)
