Church Life

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.

Young Adults

Generation One is an active young adults network for 20s and 30s to connect, make friends and live life to the fullest through God. Single or married, studying or working, settled or far from home, we're one generation walking different paths, but in one direction.
