The vision of City Life Church is simply to love God, love one another and love the world. We are a friendly and vibrant church, passionate about hearing and responding to Jesus in order to make his love known. We provide a place of belonging and growth in order that we might be equipped to support our communities, initiate projects, and be all we can be for Him. We are actively involved in the local community, the city and internationally, working in partnership wherever possible for the benefit of all, especially the vulnerable and disadvantaged.
We have two celebrations every Sunday at 286, Burgess Road, SO16 3BE. You are welcome to join us for our 'Shine Celebration' 10am - 12pm: building family together through all-age fun activities, worship, teaching and prayer. Or come along to our 'Evening Celebration' 6.30 - 8.30pm: building community together through worship, teaching and prayer. All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Tea, coffee, soft drinks and snacks are served at the start of both celebrations, and we invite guests to our Welcome Table where you can find out more about City Life. There is free parking locally.More about our celebrations
City Life has many Connect groups across the city meeting in homes weekly or fortnightly at which you will receive a warm welcome. We also have community outreach groups in specific places providing an opportunity to build friendships and explore faith in God together. These include St Andrews Messy Church in Sholing, Open Door at 286 and our Kids & Families outreach.Get involved
As a church, we connect and partner with several other local churches and projects. Some of these are independent charities but partnering together as Pioneer family enables us to share resources and serve our local communities more effectively. We are privileged to have a great team who serve our children, young people and vulnerable adults. Our Safeguarding policies and procedures are aimed to give confidence to everyone working in these areas. They set out guidelines that ensure the best possible standards of safety and protection for all. We are grateful to Churches Child Protection Advisory Service (CCPAS), Winchester Diocese, and agencies such as, StopItNow, Lucy Faithful Foundation, SafeNetwork, the NSPCC and New Community, especially Elaine Davidson. Their help has been invaluable. If you have any concerns about Safeguarding at City Life Church, please contact Dave Barclay.Download Safeguarding Policy
