church front We are a welcoming, affirming, and safe congregation for all who attend—whoever you are, whatever your journey or background. God excludes no one, and neither do we. 

Our mission is to reveal the love of Christ in all its tenderness and grandeur to the community in which we live. We desire to embrace the wonder of humanity in its complexity, diversity, and beauty--and to do so without precondition. In short, we yearn to reveal the splendor of Christ and to affirm the worth of all people.

City Church’s Online Campus (www.citychurch-online.org) has expanded! There are now 14 broadcasts everyday of the week! (Wednesdays will be when the new week’s broadcast begins.)
—Sunday through Friday at 8:00 p.m. Pacific Ttime & Eastern Time
—Saturday mornings at 11:00 a.m., Pacific Ttime & Eastern Time

*For our international friends, it is easy to see our broadcast times in your time zone. Just click on the Timezone drop-down arrow in the upper right corner.

A daily schedule means we can minister to almost anyone most of the time! This means, of course, that we still need a few more chat hosts for the services—welcoming viewers at the beginning, and wishing them God’s blessing at the end of the service. Contact us and we can show you how to become a chat host. It is easier than you think. Become the blessing to those who are unable to worship with us in person!

City Church Online is also re-broadcasting San Francisco's Church 1.0 service Sunday-Friday at 3:30 p.m., and Saturday at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time. Live-streaming of Church 1.0 is every Saturday at http://new.livestream.com/accounts/5213395.
