Come as you are, find what you are looking for

We are City on a Hill: Whittington, a Christian community that exists to Know Jesus & Make Jesus Known.

Visit this Sunday at 11am (245 Wilsons Rd, Whittington).

True Hope

Discover Loving

Find the
Real Jesus

Life is chaotic

Our days can feel like an endless loop of brokenness and hopelessness. There must be a way out of this endless loop. There must be better way to live.

Jesus is the way.

He is the light in the darkness. He offers true peace and says “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Whether you’re considering visiting church for the first time, or the first time in a long time – you are welcome.

With Jesus, everything can be different.

There is a place for you here

No matter what you’ve been through, we invite you to join our community and find genuine acceptance.

Together we will seek to know Jesus more and encounter the deep joy and hope that can only be found in him.

Come along to our Sunday gathering or join us on a Tuesday for a free dinner. All are welcome.

Jesus walked this earth with his heart and his arms open wide. He loved and welcomed all who came to him. Jesus said all who come to him will find forgiveness, restoration, freedom, life….and rest.

We are a church that wants to be like Jesus.

What it’s like to be part of our community

“When I arrived at City on a Hill, I was nervous and had a lot of guards up through fear of being judged, but it has been quite the opposite, I have felt loved and accepted for where I’m at on my journey with God.”
“When I look at City on a Hill Whittington, I see a church that is doing some of the things spoken of in Matt 25: 34-40. It is welcoming, without judgement, people who have drug and alcohol issues, those with anxiety, and those who have been in prison.”

Frequently asked questions

What should I expect on Sunday?

On Sundays we gather together to build friendships, learn about Jesus from the bible, sing together, pray together and some weeks take communion together. Everyone is welcome no matter if you’re new to Christianity, interested to learn more, looking for prayer, or have been a Christian for a long time.

What should I wear?

Come as you are. We dress pretty informally!

Can I just show up on a Sunday?

You sure can! No need to let us know you’re coming, but if you do let us know we can save you a seat, and make a plan to connect with you before or after our gathering.

What denomination of Christianity are you?

City on Hill: Whittington is an Anglican church that is part of the City on a Hill movement of churches. Some City on a Hill churches are independent and some are Anglican.

What is your vision?

City on Hill’s vision is to reach 10 cities with the beauty, truth and relevance of Jesus by planting 50 churches. Our vision at City on a Hill: Whittington is that we will be a “city set on a hill” (Matthew 5:14) where souls are saved and a family where deep disciples are made.

Why plant new churches?

Church planting is one of the most effective ways to build new disciples of Jesus, and grow the broader church. New churches are new communities, and therefore new opportunities for people to connect or reconnect with a church community. And new churches stretch Christians to pray more and be on mission, sharing the good news of Jesus with others.

Can I invite others?

Absolutely! The more the merrier. No need to let us know.

What is the gospel?

The gospel is the good news, or in other words good story of Jesus. The God-man who became like us – human, 2000 years ago. And then lived a perfect life, suffered a brutal death, before rising from the dead on our behalf. The gospel is bad news of our sin and rebellion, but also the good news of Jesus’ forgiveness and offer of a new life. A new way to live: one of joy, peace, and hope.

What do you believe about the Bible?

The Bible is God’s revelation to us. The words of the Bible are divinely inspired and without error. The Bible is sufficient for knowing God and equips us to live holy and meaningful Christian lives.

What do you believe about Jesus?

We believe that Jesus is the God-man. That he was a real, historic man who was also God in the flesh. We believe he lived the perfect life, suffered, died and rose again on our behalf. We believe that soon he is coming back to judge the living and dead, and that following him leads to a better life, one of quantity (eternity) and quality (joy).

Our door is always open

Visit this Sunday, we’d love to see you.
