City Church is an increasingly diverse community comitted to helping each other live like Jesus in our city and our world. We're a small but lively group of people seeking God's heart for our neighbors, our campuses, our friends, our city, and each other.
Throughout the week, City Church gathers in community groups where we learn, live, and share Jesus’ story. Community groups are the best way to begin to experience what living like Jesus is all about. Many of our community groups are engaged in serving their neighbors at local community centers, youth prisons, english as a second language classes, and more. They are a place you can belong.
On Sundays, City Church gathers to worship Jesus, hear relevant messages from Scripture, and enjoy meeting old and new friends. We are excited to meet in such a diverse and centrally located neighborhood like Allston and would love to have you visit us.
You will be welcomed into a warm and friendly environment, where others come as they are (and dress how they like) to worship Jesus and enjoy being together. You'll probably be greeted by our connect team, and you will be able to pick up a packet of info about City Church and a coffee at our welcome table in the back. In the first half of our meeting there will be a joyful and expressive time of worship where we expect to experience the presence of God and hear from Him, then there will be a talk (message) where we seek to make the truth of the Bible relevant to life. There is often an opportunity to receive prayer for any issue in your life at the end of the gathering. There's always coffee and sometimes even some snacks at our welcome table, and there will be folks from many different countries and backgrounds ready to answer your questions and get to know you. Everyone is welcome at City Church.
We meet in the Brighton Music Hall, a music venue that we rent each Sunday.
Worship begins at 10:30am and usually ends around noon. There are dozens of great restaurants to go out to lunch to around our site.
During the message there will be a kid’s program (4-8) and nursery (0-3) available for your children. We love children and enjoy having them as a part of our gatherings. All of our kid's workers are trained and CORI certified.

As we encounter Jesus and journey on His mission together, we value...
Jesus Centered Worship
Gospel Focused Preaching
Others Focused Ministry
Costly, Joyful Giving
Spirit Empowered Prayer
But more than anything else we value the grace of God. God demonstrated his love and grace for us that while we were still caught in sin Jesus died for us and now enables us to love all people freely and without condition.
