FAQ

Do I have to be a Christian to come visit New City Church?

No you don't. Though many of us are, we welcome people no matter what their backgrounds or beliefs or honest questions.

New City Church is a place where you can safely explore the teachings of Jesus Christ without pressure. We'd be honored if you'd use the resources of our community to grow in your understanding of yourself, your Creator, and this world.

Do I have to stand up and introduce myself or say something?

No. You can come and simply observe the service if you'd like.

Of course, we'd love the opportunity to meet you. There is an information table, plus coffee and refreshments after the service. There is no pressure to sign up for anything.

What should I wear?

With the weather being as crazy as it is in Calgary, please come comfortably. You will find that people wear whatever they are comfortable in - everything from dresses & ties, to jeans & sneakers, to shorts & sandals.

So our advice is to simply come as you are. You'll fit right in.

What is the service like?

Our services are rich, joyful, and reverent.

When you arrive, you will be given an outline for the service. Here's a sample.

You will notice that we sing a variety of historic & contemporary songs & hymns. Often, we will have guitars & a keyboard for instruments. The morning lesson from the Scripture usually lasts around 25-30 minutes. We observe the Lord's Supper every week.

All in all, we aim for a service that lasts for about 75-85 minutes, so we're usually done well before noon. There is a time for refreshments immediately following the service.  

Do I have to give money or anything?

No. While we do have an opportunity for those who call New City Church their home to support the ministry and mission of the church, there is no pressure or expectation that you should give. You are our guest and we are just happy to have you visiting!

Is there childcare available?

Yes. At the moment, we provide a nursery for children ages 0 up to 3 years of age during the worship service.

All our childcare workers are appropriately screened.
