10am @ 63 Nanson St Wembley, Perth
We come together on a Sunday to connect with each other and God.
We come together to rehearse the words of Jesus so we can live like Him.
We come together to encounter God’s presence at His table and be filled with His Spirit, because everyone is invited!
We come together to be reminded of the ‘Go’ of Christ, to be sent to bring God flavours and God colours in to our world.
Come and join us there’s always room for one more!
AFTER THE SERVICE & DURING THE WEEK
Like many communities we are serious about food. And coffee. And just hanging out. After the service you are welcome to join us in doing just that. This is a great time to get to know people, to ask for prayer, to make some new friends. Because we are a community (not just a service), we gather during the week in homes and coffee shops to connect with each other and experience God’s love through each other as we seek to live God’s love for others during the week.
WHY COMMUNION EVERY WEEK?
Why not? We believe what is central to our time together is not good preaching (though important), or anointed worship (which we desire) but God’s presence. We believe Christ’s life, death, burial, resurrection and ascension is the crescendo of God’s message. And Communion is the Message in a Meal. God promises to be present in a special way at The Table; where broken people like us are invited to share in Christ’s broken body, celebrate God’s grace and anticipate that Day when God’s love will be all in all. God welcomes everyone to the table, so do we.
COMMUNITY LUNCHES & TOWNHALL MEETINGS
We get together and share a meal. During our community lunches we share together and celebrate God’s grace. We remember Jesus, His life and way, as well as welcome the Holy Spirit. And finally, we invite those to the table, who like us, have at one time or another felt on the outside, felt too broken and sinful to come and yet like us, Jesus invites them to come and be healed and made whole also.
Our Townhall Meetings are our time to gather and chat about the practical side of church, as well as our plans, finances and how we are travelling along together on our pilgrimage. We share good news stories and celebrate. It's always a joyful time together. We have so much to be thankful for!
WHAT ABOUT GIVING?
At Westcity, we take up an offering each week, in a quiet way during one of the songs. We agree that the Bible teaches us to give to the poor, to share with each other for all we need as a church community and to support those whose work is within the church. So the people at Westcity give pre-set regular amounts via on-line bank transfers. Or through placing money in the offering bag or into the silver giving box situated at the back of the chapel. We present a budget each year outlining where the finances are going to be spent and regularly update our church community on how we are tracking.
We also take up an annual Common Purse offering. This is a separate Westcity community fund to be redistributed to those in need, locally or globally.
OUR KIDS MISSION:
Helping our children
to love God,
and follow Jesus
Creche (0-3 years), Children (3 years to Grade 4) and Lighthouse (Grades 5 -7).
Sunday Youth (for high school age) happens weekly, during our weekend church service. It focuses on a facilitated discussion with a member of the teaching team or a specially selected church community member, around our church theology and how it relates to youth and culture. It is open to all Year 7 – 12s and their friends. One main benefit of this program is the bridge it creates for our youth to church leaders and church teaching, that we believe makes for a better sense of ‘belonging’ to our church community.
We join the Youth Program at Subi Church (every Friday from 7pm-9.15pm). Subi is a local church which shares much of our philosophy and theology around youth, God & friendship.
