Hi there, welcome to the Geelong City Parish and thanks for visiting our website.
We are a warm and diverse community here in the heart of Geelong.
Our congregation worships in this beautiful old church, which for over 150 years has been a place of prayer, of music and silence where people have been sustained and challenged by the transforming love of God. Fashioned by that transforming love we have always believed that the worship of God needs to be expressed in concrete acts of justice, kindness and care. So we have developed a small agency called ‘the Wesley Centre for Life Enrichment’ where, in counselling, support groups and educational opportunities, we seek to serve the wider Geelong Community, especially the most vulnerable.
We believe that God is on about transformation:
- Transformation of the human heart
- Transformation of communities
- Transformation of our world, so fragile, so fraught by violence, degradation and prejudice
We warmly value those who over the years have helped to shape our common life, by their faith and dedication, vision and energy, knowing that as they were open to God’s leading, we too are drawn to new ways of expressing the love and justice of God.
We aim to be a vibrant, Christian community, known for its inclusive worship, commitment to serving the Geelong community and involvement in civic life.
On Sundays at 9.00am we gather for contemporary worship with the band followed by a cuppa in the hall and there we mingle and foster our friendships with another part of our community who worship at 10.45am in a more traditional style supported by a wonderful pipe organ.
We would like you to be part of our community as we seek to witness to the love of God made known in Jesus Christ.
