FIRST TIME?

At Church of the City we seek to integrate the best of historic Christianity with a contextualized and thoughtful approach to our faith today. Our gatherings consist of singing (both hymns and contemporary songs), the reading of scripture, expository preaching, and a time at the end of every gathering for response and ministry from the Holy Spirit.  We view our gatherings as an essential part of our shared spiritual formation as we seek to live the Way of Jesus together.

We gladly welcome anyone to our Sunday services.  If you are joining us this Sunday and you have any special needs or considerations which require you to contact us in advance please email us at hello@churchofthecity.com.

If you are a Christian or come from a faith-background, we have a short book written by senior pastor Jon Tyson, called Becoming a Creative Minority," which further unpacks our vision for life in the city.

 If you are exploring faith for the first time, we have a free book for you entitled Why I am A Christian” by John Stott, which makes a compelling case for why the Christian faith makes a life-giving difference in our world today.  Come to our connect table in the lobby of our gatherings to receive a copy.


TEACHING

We believe that the teaching of God’s word is to play a central role in our worship gatherings, through both the public reading of scripture, and the teaching of the word.

All of us are looking for wisdom and insight on how to navigate the complexities of our modern lives, and how to live in a way that humbly and faithfully honors God. Our preaching is designed to integrate biblical exegesis, cultural understanding, practical application and personal formation so that we learn to think, act, love and serve like Christ. We value the scriptures as the source and authority of our faith, and seek to understand and live them faithfully in our time and place.
