We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-wracking. We want to help make your first experience at City Church a great one!
We're located right in the heart of the city – arguably in Manchester's trendiest area – the Northern Quarter.
We usually start by singing our thanks and love to God. Don't worry if you don't know the songs. It's fine to just listen and take it all in.
One of the ways we connect with God is by talking to him in prayer. You'll get a chance to fill out a prayer form in the service if you'd like prayer about something.
A big part of gathering is getting to spend time together laughing, talking and hanging out. We believe God created us to be in community – it's vital for human thriving.
This word has negative associations, and yet hearing from God's word about how much he loves his people is anything but. Talks are usually around 35 minutes, but please don't time us!
Who doesn't love a good snack?! Whether it's a brew, a cookie, or some fruit, we try and have something for everyone... and it's all free.
For Christians, church isn't a meaningless ritual to tick a box. Nor is it simply a crutch for the weak. For us, gathering together is vital to thriving as humans. Not only do we enjoy being together, we also get a weekly reminder of the true meaning of life – our true purpose – to glorify God by enjoying our relationship with Jesus.
