GROUPS

Community life groups, you can join or start:

Home Church – coming together weekly or fortnightly to open up the scriptures, pray together, share a meal, hear each other’s stories and support and care for one another on the journey.

Connect Groups – gathering together weekly, fortnightly or monthly over a common interest. The sky’s the limit; whether that’s walking, prayer, pottery, gardening, playing a sport, painting or advocating for a social justice cause, it’s up to you.

Pop Up Groups – Short term groups of 4-8 weeks where we gather, learn and grow together. Whether that’s a book study, couples dinner or discussion group around a specific topic or cause.

HOME CHURCHES

As a church we want to live out the 'welcome' and 'go' of Christ. 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.
Some people meet one on one at coffee shops, others meet in a group at their homes. Home churches are centred around Jesus' teachings and presence, undergirded by friendship with one another and service to each other. We see this as being a part of living out our vision of loving God, Loving people and following Jesus.

To find out more about our Home Churches, or to join (or lead) a Home Church, contact Phil Stevenson (Lead Pastor) phil.westcitychurch@gmail.com

WESTCITY WOMEN

At Westcity we want to create space for women to take time out, to be supported in the myriad of tasks that face women each day. So we connect, discuss and encourage one another. To invite Jesus to be at the centre of it all – the centre of our small decisions and our big moments, of our careers and families, of our mess and our order.
Women at the Well, Women’s Lunches, High Teas. Seniors Morning Tea every Wednesday morning. Email westcitychurch@gmail.com for more info.
Ministry for Mums, Dads and Young Families: To offer support, care and love during this intensive life stage of raising little ones.

For more information, or to find out how you could help with supporting young families in our neighborhood and community, email westcitychurch@gmail.com.

Volunteer with Us 

Vocation originally means “calling”.
Duty without heart is just a transaction. Duty from the heart fulfils our calling. And we are all called to serve.
“Whoever brings blessing will be enriched and one who waters will himself be watered.” Proverbs 11:25

When I read this verse, what strikes me is that without heart who ever brings blessing won’t be enriched, without heart one who waters wont himself be watered. It’s just an action. To genuinely serve with all you heart is when we will be enriched, and we will be watered.

Our Volunteer Coordinator is there to support the healthy functioning of the volunteers within Westcity. I believe we are a Church that functions with heart. If you have a desire and feel called to serve, but you don’t know where or how, or maybe you don’t know what gifts you may be able to use please come and speak to me. I would love to help you try and find your place to serve.

For more information on volunteering with us please contact Nina Bergmann, Volunteer Coordinator, via westcitychurch@gmail.com.

JOIN US ON FACEBOOK 

Our Westcity Community Face Book page is a private group and is distinct from our Westcity public page. Each of our pages has its own distinct purpose: community building versus information sharing (although there is always some overlap). The community group allows us to check in with one another, ask for help and provide encouragement. This is just one of the ways we stay connected and build networks, outside of meeting at Nanson Street.

Please note that people ‘ask’ to join a group and then agree to a code of conduct that keeps a community safe and cohesive. This will automatically be forwarded to you when applying to the page.
