Life On Purpose

The life of our church extends across Christchurch and beyond, seven days a week. From your local Connect Group down the road, to the overseas missions fields, City's Christ-centred ministries provide excellent opportunities to make new friends, grow in faith and serve.

Connect Groups

Go small, grow big. Join a small circle of friends at a Connect Group near you, to discuss the Bible over a hot drink and enlarge your faith.
