SUNDAY SERVICE –  All Welcome

We have plenty of room and all are welcome to join us for our Nanson Street Sunday 10am service.

Please arrive at 9.50am for normal Sunday morning services . The service starts with worship at 9.55am, as we will be filming the service for those watching online.

Children’s Ministry Program is on 

On arrival, please sign your children in (and you will also need to sign them out at the end of the service).  For babies to 2 year olds, the crèche room will open.

Transitioning from Video-Livestream to new and improved Podcasts
Over the last 12 months, our livestream has served an incredible purpose of reaching both our own Westcity family and the wider community. As restrictions have eased in WA, we have assessed the effectiveness of continuing the livestream and will soon be transitioning from video-livestream to a new and improved podcast format.

Comparing analytics across the platforms showed that podcasts had a wider reach and a bigger capacity with a significantly smaller spend of resources. We will have three more weeks of Livestream Sundays and will wrap up on Sunday March 7. If you’re streaming live at home, we’d love to still host you online until then. We will communicate here about links to all the platforms that the Westcity Podcasts will be available on, over the next few weeks.

Lent 2021 

Our current sermon series theme is “Lent 2021: The Story We Are In”. You can scroll down this homepage for a full outline of what we will be covering in our Sunday sermons and mid-week resources over the coming weeks.

We are suggesting that our community goes on a Lenten journey this year, using the resource “Into the Desert”, available from this link https://intothedesert.org/  or preferably as a free app for iPhone and Android.

Lent 2021 started on Ash Wednesday Feb 17, so we encourage you to jump into these daily reflections, over the coming six weeks, in the lead up to Easter.

 

Westcity Youth – Friday Nights – Join us Feb 26

This year we will have a Friday night program running 4 times each term and led by parent teams along with Peter, one of our young adults. This is consistent with what we have done in the past and is an open welcome for anyone from Year 7 – Year 12. Older youth may in effect help with the leadership and support on the evening.

Come and join us for the first Friday Night Youth Group of the year on Friday February 26, 7pm-9pm, at Westcity Church. It will be a games night in the Church hall and supper. Come along and tell us your ideas for future activities, we want to hear from you!

Sunday Youth – Sunday March 7

All high school aged youth are invited to join Phil for some teaching and discussion at our second Sunday Youth on March 7, at 10am. Join us in the chapel for the normal Westcity Sunday service and then Youth will head out the back together, at the end of the worship/music.

This is a new initiative (run fortnightly, during school term). This morning will aim at a discussion with a member of the teaching team around how our church teaching relates and connects to the young people in our community. Again, it is open to all Year 7 – 12s with the focus on the older age group allowing the younger youth to be able to listen and learn from their older peers.

Children’s Team – volunteers needed

We are looking for people to volunteer for three roles: storyteller, doorkeeper, and helper. The different roles might suit different personality types and allow people to take on differing levels of preparation and responsibility. If we keep the teams consistent and put them on for three weeks in a row, they can build relationship with each other and with the children.

Storyteller (lead teacher) – this person will tell children a core Bible story using the Godly Play approach. They will need to prepare and rehearse the story in advance, and learn how to deliver Godly Play (training provided). This is a role for someone who is confident with kids and comfortable speaking to the whole group. As team leader, they will also need to get to know and encourage their team, meet with them before the service and pray with them, and encourage them for their contribution.

Doorkeeper (small group discussion facilitator) – the doorkeeper welcomes children across the threshold of the Godly Play room, to listen and wonder. After the story is over, this person will sit with children who would like to explore the story further, by looking it up in the Bible, and asking and answering questions. They might wish to prepare an activity or extension questions about the story to lead older children in deeper understanding – although this is optional (they can just turn up on the day and follow the children’s’ lead).

Helper – a third set of hands is really important to help set up beforehand and clean up afterwards; to support younger children with craft activities; and simply to sit with children and get to know them as they do their “work”, responding to the story. No preparation required, but it would be great if they can commit to being at the church by 9.30am reliably. This role suits those who don’t want to lead the lesson or discussions but want to help out and get to know the children.

We are also looking for volunteers to help in the creche room (with the babies to 2 year olds).

Please consider if any of these roles are a way you can serve the community and find connection. By the way, if the three week commitment concerns you, please talk to Kathleen overseeing the Children’s Teams and let’s see if we can work together on a solution. Maybe you could go on roster as a helper once per school term (eg 4 times per year)? Maybe you and a friend could go on roster together? You can contact Kathleen on wardk@iinet.net.au or via our website.

HOME CHURCH

As a church we want to live out the 'welcome' and 'go' of Christ. So we meet together beyond our Sunday gathering to do that. Some people meet one on one at coffee shops, others meet in their homes. Home churches are centred around Jesus' teachings and presence, undergirded by friendship with one another and service to each other.

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.

My role as Vocation Chaplain is to support the healthy functioning of the volunteers and Church 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 Fran de Carolis, Vocation Chaplain.
