Our Giving page outlines the finer details of how our Common Purse operates.

SUNDAY SERVICES – From July 5th

Here is a video update from Phil, giving you an overview of ‘Westcity Coming Home from July 5th’.

Sunday Service at Nanson Street 10am, from July 5th onwards. Register here to attend July 5 and July 12, as soon as possible. Limited spaces.
We look forward to meeting together and welcoming our local community, new comers, young families and those not already connected within our church community. Children will not attend the service in the chapel but go straight into their program in the rear hall. On arrival, please sign your children in (and you will also need to sign them out at the end of the service). Please arrive at 9.50am . The service starts with worship at 9.55am, as we will be filming the service for those watching online.

Sunday Homes – this is for those already connected with in the Westcity community, to help create extra space at Nanson St. We are asking our church leaders and members to consider hosting a Sunday morning at their home by inviting friends and home church members to join them. At this time, it is rather informal but the morning will include watching the live-stream service, from 10.15am as a group followed by conversation and community. We would ask that leaders keep a list of those attending in the event that we are asked to provide details.

There is no need to register for a Sunday Home at this time as Home leaders will be managing their own invites and arrangements. If you are keen to attend a Sunday Home and haven’t already received an invite  (or are able to host), please contact us.

Livestream Sundays to continue from 10.15am. We are so happy to be able to continue to connect and care for our online community locally and around the world, in this way.
Our weekly online resources will also continue for you, throughout the week, such as Podcasts, Home Study Notes, Pastoral Notes, Weekly Updates, Church Emails, FaceBook and other initiatives.

Join Media Team:

Being in lockdown has shown us the ability of utilising the digital realm to still continue to “go out” and “be the church” in the world. Our Westcity community is truly such a beautiful gathering of people.

We are excited to continue to do more in this global online space and put our combined skills together to achieve something wonderful here.

Here are some areas we see us continuing to be active in and some roles that would go alongside:

LIVE CHURCH (In-person gatherings)
– Sound Desk
– Visuals Desk

LIVESTREAM SUNDAYS (Church livestreamed over social platforms)
– Filming
– Audio Mastering
– Editing
– Livestreaming
– Social Stream Moderation

DIGITAL MEDIA
– Photography
– Filming
– Editing

– Graphic Design

If you would like to be involved in this group of people pulling in our time and skill sets to be able to reach people that are still isolating and/or unable to meet in person, let us know.
Send an email to Josh Fernandes at av@westcity.church

Morning Prayer: Join us on zoom, every morning from 7am – 7:30am (Monday – Friday). 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: Centred around Jesus’ teachings and presence, undergirded by friendship with one another and service to each other.

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.

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.

For more information on our current Men’s Groups and ways to connect please email 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.
For more information on our current Women’s Groups and ways to connect please 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, Volunteers Chaplain.
