Serving the CityIn April 2005, CityChurch partnered with the Trussell Trust to launch the Gloucester Foodbank, providing emergency food and care for local people in crisis. Since that time we have been able to serve thousands of individuals and families in the local area with food parcels in their time of need.

Food parcels for local people
In 2012 we began a partnership with the multi-award winning charity Christians Against Poverty to open a debt advice centre in Gloucester. Since that time, our trained and caring team have been able to serve and support many local people struggling to get free from the cycle of debt.
We also run the CAP money course, a free course for anyone to help you manage your finances.
Welcome to CityChurch, a dynamic Christian church with a vision to make a difference in Gloucester (UK), the wider region and the nations. We are part of the newfrontiers family of churches, with particular involvement in the Regions Beyond sphere, an initiative linking churches together across the globe. We meet on Sundays at 10.30 am at the former St Stephen’s church on Bristol Road, GL1 5SY.
There are a number of other ways to connect with us throughout the week. We meet in small groups in homes and venues across the city on a number of weekday evenings, and we have a growing programme of activities for young people and children during the week. To find out more, please get in touch.
First time visitors are always welcome at CityChurch. Our Sunday meetings generally consist of two main parts. Firstly, we have a time of worship, where we express our praise and thanks to God (we encourage people to participate to the extent that they feel comfortable). Secondly we have a time of bible teaching that aims to explain God’s word in a way that is clear and relevant to life.
Children are really welcome, and a vital part of the life of CityChurch. During the service we offer a programme of activities for children aged between 5-9 and 10-14, and we also provide care, activities and facilities for those of pre-school age during the meeting.
