WHAT WE'RE ABOUT
The City Church is all about making much of Jesus. We believe that He is God, that He came from Heaven to Earth to rescue us and did so by living, dying and rising.
You may have heard many things about Jesus and His Church that could lead you to believe we are all about rules and ‘good’ people. That couldn’t be further from the truth, the Church is made up of normal people that have encountered Jesus and haven’t been the same since.
We want to share the good news with everyone, that Jesus invites you to know grace, forgiveness and purpose.
We are a passionate, fun and devoted family that want to grow in loving Jesus, the Church and the world. To know and follow Jesus isn’t just a Sunday morning deal. To be a Christian is to be a disciple who is committed to following Jesus wherever he leads.
We are here to help and bless Canterbury, Whitstable and beyond, living out the love of God that we have tasted for ourselves. We want to invite people to encounter Jesus with us.
BE GREETED THIS SUNDAY
Our heart is for everyone to feel welcome from the moment they arrive. We have tea and coffee before and after the service to give people a chance to chat.
We give time to worshipping and praising Jesus, celebrating His gospel. We believe that Jesus is alive and that He speaks to us, so we give time for prayer as well as for contributions from those in the church to build up and encourage everyone. We have weekly teaching from the Bible which is engaging, relevant and helps us to apply biblical truths to our daily lives. We also take communion regularly.
If it’s all very new to you, feel free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable. Sit where you like, including at the back if you just want to see what goes on.
We are passionate about creating an environment that is fun and safe for our young people to learn about Jesus, so on Sunday mornings we have specific provisions for all age groups. There’s more information on our site pages.
