(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.

Big Thanks to our Talented Speakers
Over the next couple of weeks we will be wrapping up our sermon series on Acts: Being Church in a Different World. Big thanks to our talented pool of speakers who have shared their thoughts, insights and scripture with us over the past three months – Richard, Peter L, Andreas & Amke , John B, Jon & Nina, Heidi, Chin, Kathleen, John G and Dawn. These valued and loved members of our community have added much depth, humor and wisdom to our Sundays, mid-week resources and core teaching team (of Phil, Chiz and Kelley).
We look forward to launching into our next series together, The God Jesus Reveals in November.
We hope you are enjoying “Take Out” – A 3 min video describing the big idea of the Sunday message and a practical application. Our newest weekly resource aimed at giving you additional ways of go deeper in your spiritual thinking and daily walk with God. Posted on our ‘Westcity Church Community’ Facebook group, each week.
Westcity Supporting the Heart of the Common Purse
Over the past few weeks we have been running a ‘Common Purse Thank you Campaign‘ to say: Thanks Westcity for your amazingly generous giving in 2020 and supporting the heart of the common purse……’more like Jesus’.
We have re-shared stories, updates and videos from the global and local projects we are currently supporting. Check out our our ‘Westcity Church’ Facebook page and ‘Westcity Community’ Facebook group.
We have also been promoting that applications are now open for funding for Common Purse Global Projects for 2021/2022 (applications close on 15 January 2021). We are looking to partner with people who have a direct relationship with Westcity and are working on small, grassroots type projects that our church community can support.
To have an initial discussion regarding the suitability of your organisation/project with the conditions of our fund please chat with our committee chairperson, Kirrily Kilbane or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Selection criteria for funding for global projects and more information can be found on our Giving page.
Peace and blessings,
Phil and the Westcity Team
