Common Purse 2021 – Supporting local and global projects

Make a tax deductible donation HERE.

“but they had all things in common…not a needy person among them” –Acts 4:32-35

Ways to Practice Living the ‘GO’

At the end of this month, we will be coming  to the end of our sermon on the mount series, ‘The New Way’ and so we will be looking at one of the practical applications of how we get to participate in God’s restoration of all things. In particular the imperative from Jesus to see, associate and help those who are in financial need.

One way we practice living the Westcity ‘GO’ is through our Westcity Common Purse annual offering on June 20 & 27.

How does the Common Purse work?
Once a year we collect a special offering. Your giving towards the common purse is tax deductible. Throughout the year, we redistribute the money to those in most in need.

COMMON PURSE LOCAL
Provides relief and supports people within the Westcity community, and their neighbours, who are facing a financial crisis. We provide urgent and temporary provision of emergency aid to reduce immediate suffering from crisis.

COMMON PURSE GLOBAL
Supports national and international relief, reconstruction, and development efforts.
We primarily focus on long-term relationships with development organisations providing reconstruction and development for communities living in poverty or extreme need.

How can you prepare?

PRAY: Begin to pray and ask God to increase your compassion and to open your eyes to see those in need. A great place to start is the Jesus prayer found in Matthew 6.

LIVE: Begin to change your lifestyle so that you have more to share with others. Set money aside each week to give. Fast something like buying coffees, eating out or that new car. This can be a way we leverage money we would have spent on ourselves to give to others.

GIVE: On 20 or 27 June come ready and prepared to give; To share what you have; To celebrate together God’s generosity to us in Jesus that we get to pass on through us.

GO: And beyond the offering – Just be open to help someone in need. Look at getting involved with one of the common purse groups or one of the organisations we partner with who are serving the least, last, lost or looked over. We are looking to recruit more Westcity people to the committee of our Common Purse Local. If you would like to know more about serving in this area, please chat with Danielle (Chair, Common Purse Local) or Fran (Vocation Chaplain) or email  fran.westcity@gmail.com

We expect that God will grow and shape us as a community as we come together to help others.

 

Next Westcity Town Hall Meeting and Community Lunch

Sunday July 25, after the service.  More information coming soon.

 

The New Way: Sermon on the Mount 2021

‘Deep Calls to Deep’ – New App

Phil has invited everyone to join in on using this App, over the coming weeks. Deep Calls to Deep is a 46-day journey into the mystery of the cross that begins in Holy Week and ends on Ascension Day (but it is suitable for any time of the year).  Readings, quotes and reflections for every day make this a feast of theological reflection and fuel for prayer, especially for those who already find themselves in stormy seas. You can download it here:

Next Friday Youth – June 18, 7pm-8.30pm, Monopoly Night at Westcity. All high school aged youth and their friends are welcome.

Upcoming Sunday Youth: June 27 @ 10am

All high school aged youth are invited to join us for some teaching and discussion at our next Sunday Youth on June 27, at 10am, with Chiz.

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 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.

 

CONNECT

Community Life: The word ‘life’ in our community life title is an acronym for Love, Inclusion, Faith, Everyone. 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. Whether we are meeting for a coffee, studying the bible together in a home church, sharing meals, praying in the morning on zoom or the myriad of other gatherings that take place throughout the week, we see this as being a part of living out our vision of loving God, Loving people and following Jesus.

Morning Prayer: Join us on zoom, every morning from 7am – 7:30am (Monday – Friday). Click on ‘Join us’ in the sentence above. The zoom password is ‘prayer’.

Each of us read the scriptures to ourselves, think about what we have read, have a few minutes of stilling ourselves before God, and maybe a few minutes blessing and praying for one another before we enter the day.

Home Church: Centered around Jesus’ teachings and presence, undergirded by friendship with one another and service to each other.
To join (or lead) a Home Church, contact Phil Stevenson via our website or email phil.stevenson@westcity.church

Connect Groups: Meeting online and in person: Women, Men, Young Mums, Young Adults (20-39 Year Olds). Email westcitychurch@gmail.com to join. Details on our ‘Westcity Church’ Facebook page.

Welcome to Westcity Dinner (W2W): Register Here

Friday July 30 @ 7pm, at Rob & Lois’ House in Swanbourne

For those who are new to Westcity church, or those who have recently joined our community and would like to learn more about Westcity and how to get more engaged and connected, if and when you are ready.

When you meet a friend you have them over for a meal. At Westcity it’s no different. As we come to the communion table of Jesus each week we learn about the welcome of Christ and let’s face it, meals are the best way to extend a welcome.

The other great thing about a meal is that we get to share a bit about each other. You get to meet some of the team and we get to share a bit about how Westcity functions, what we value, what we’re up to. All of this is done around good food and wine. There’s no pressure, just family (in Christ) having a yarn.

We have 12 limited places, so please register early to avoid disappointment.

We plan on hosting these W2W Dinners every calendar term. For more info chat to Phil Stevenson or email westcitychurch@gmail.com

Westcity 2030’s Young Adults is a new space for all singles and couples in their 20’s and 30’s but also for the young at heart in our church community.

Next event: Sunday July 4, 6.30pm, at Westcity Church, Naidoc Week Gathering.

You can chat to Jason, Corey or Kara to know more about what’s in store for the 2030’s (Young Adults) group in 2021. More info can be found on their ‘Westcity Church – 2030s’ Facebook page or 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.
