It is with much excitement that the elders of Church of the City would like to announce: We are moving!
Over the last number of months we have begun to experience growth constrictions in our current space, John McCrae Public School. This is a great problem but one that needs to be solved.
As elders, we discerned a couple of things:
1) We do not want to split our church into two services. We have only begun to develop some of our rhythms and values and keeping us together for unity was identified as important. As we continue to develop a 'Reunion' culture having one large gathering made more sense than two smaller.
2) We want to remain central in the city. Our desire is to be accessible for all people in the city and select a central location to do so. Our vision of 'In Guelph as it is in Heaven' continues to guide us as we pray this over our city.
With these two things in mind we began exploring central meeting locations and while our selection became extremely limited, it also made our choice much easier. We are excited to announce that War Memorial Hall will become our new meeting space this January.
War Memorial Hall has an incredibly rich history in this city and is dead centre at the corner of Gordon and College.
Over the next couple of months please be praying for our elders and leadership team as they plan and put together this new space. This is a big faith step for us but we are trusting our incredible God to guide as we move.
If you have questions please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or ask them to our elders at our upcoming membership information meetings (Nov. 6th and Nov. 14th).
