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.

HOME CHURCH & COMMUNITY LIFE

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.

GUYS. BLOKES. GENTLEMEN.

Let’s face it, every guy needs someone they can be real with.
At Westcity we are no different, so we connect at different times during the week, and talk about how we can follow Jesus in the midst of our stuff ups and our successes.

Men’s Coffee – Wednesdays 10am, at ‘Brew Ha The Ritual’, 162 Rokeby Rd, Subiaco. No agenda other than intentionally open relationships. It is open to any men including those unconnected with Westcity.

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: Fortnightly on a Tuesday at 7.30pm, Karen & Nikki open their home. You are welcome to join us for a chat, relax and a cuppa. Email westcitychurch@gmail.com for more info.

Alternate Monday mornings at the church, from 9.30am – 11.30am, during the school term.
We also aim to provide support and kindness, by providing a care basket and the offer of some cooked meals, when a new baby arrives. For more information, or to find out how you could help with supporting young families and women 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.

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), fran.westcity@gmail.com.
