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.

Prophetic Ministry

One of the most encouraging things in life is receiving and running with a prophetic word that reveals God's truth and purpose for us. It's our privilege at City to provide prophetic ministry training and opportunities to receive a word through individual prayer.
