Welcome To City

We're a church for everyday people, where you can come as you are to connect with God in a way that makes sense. Whether you're exploring the Christian faith or a church regular, there's something for you.

About Us

What To Expect

At City you'll be welcomed into a friendly and casual environment by people who are genuinely happy to see you. 

How long are Sunday services?

About 90 minutes, give or take a little depending on what the Holy Spirit has in store. Stay for a chat, prayer, tea or coffee after the service.

What about my kids?

Bring them along! Our dedicated children’s programme is available at both locations for infants to 12 year olds.

What is the music like?

We enjoy live music and singing as part of our worship to God. It's vibrant and modern, but not noisy. Check out our Spotify playlist for a selection of songs we enjoy.

What should I wear?

We want you to be at ease and encourage you to wear whatever you're comfortable in. We usually dress casually.

Jesus

Who is Jesus and why does it matter? Discover the hope of the world.
