Christ Church birthday celebration

One of our sister churches, Christ Church North Dublin, is celebrating two years since it was planted by Irish Church Missions.

We're invited to a 2nd Birthday Celebration at Baldoyle Community Hall, on Sunday 22 May at 5.15pm. Join them as they thank God for His faithfulness in building His Church.


Smith sabbatical

Mark and Philippa are now on Sabbatical until July. Please pray for them and their family as they take time off to rest and recharge after almost a decade of church planting and prepare for the next season.

If you need pastoral care, please reach out to our other elders - Ben Linn, Peter Thompson and Duncan Candler - or alternatively, talk to your community group leaders or the women's ministry team (Nicole Thompson, Dorine Linn, Sarah Emerson).


Women's ministry

At City, we believe God has given us community to help us know, love and follow Jesus. One of the best ways we can grow together is being part of a 1 to 1 (or 2!) group, that meets regularly to read, pray, share their struggles and encourage one another in the gospel.

If you'd like to be part of a group but aren't sure who to ask, sign up here and the women's ministry team can connect you up to someone else.

If you're already meeting in a group, please also fill out the form, so that we have an idea of the groups that are already meeting and can better support you!


Community groups

Community groups are pausing in May, but there will be alternative programming taking place over the summer.

The elders are planning for the Autumn, and want to provide opportunities for everyone to get involved. Please fill out this short survey to help them think through what community groups will look like next term.


Serving at City

Being united to Jesus means we're joined to each other too - part of Christ's body, the Church. Like a body has different members with different jobs, City is made up of people who serve each other in different ways, so that Christ's body is built up together in love.If you call City church your home - even if just for a brief season - why not consider serving on one of our ministry teams? For more information, or to get involved, please chat to the ministry team leaders.

At City Church we want to make people feel welcome, whether they are new, just visiting, or are established members. This happens organically all the time as the gospel changes our hearts and compels us to love others.

The Welcome Team compliments this, along with the Hospitality and Connect teams. In particular, the Welcome Team seeks to make people feel at home from the moment they come to City on a Sunday morning by being a welcoming face and the first "Hello!".

Welcome Team members are people who know the benefit of helping the outside feel at home. They love to meet new people and can carry a conversation with people that they are just getting to know.

Those serving on the Welcome Team should arrive no later than 10am to begin welcoming people. They usher people into the screen and seek to chat to any newcomers straight after the service. Each member serves once a month.

Peter Thompson is the Welcome Coordinator. You can chat to him to get involved.


Help us start a new church

Together we are planting Redeemer Church Dublin in Churchtown later this year. All of us as involved in this process whether it's praying or giving to support it. Some of you may feel called to join the launch team as it prepares to be sent from us.

If you would like more information on the plant and being part of the launch team please speak to Duncan or email him duncan@citychurchdublin.ie


€2 Lunches

Eating together as a church family is important, and lunch in the city is expensive, so we came up with "€2 lunches". After church on Sunday, someone from City will provide lunch in their home for a number of people. We just ask that you give €2 to help supplement the cost of the meal.

€2 lunch is hosted by Sydney this week at her home in South Dublin. You can sign up and find the address at the Connect table after the service.

If you are interested in hosting, or providing a meal to bring to someone else's home, you can find out more at the Connect table, or chat to Becky Candler.


Ukrainian fund

Donations to our Ukrainian fund will be given either to families directly affected who are placed here in Dublin or to our Acts 29 church planting partners in Ukraine.

If you wish to give, go to the giving page on the website, or the giving tab below, and designate your gift to the “Ukrainian fund”.


Giving

Giving is an act of worship and obedience. It is one of the ways that we respond to God's generosity to us in the gospel. Therefore we encourage everyone who calls City Church their home commit to giving sacrificially, regularly and joyfully according to the means that God has given you. You can do this easily through our website here.
