We are broken people loved by God, continually restored by Christ, and sent out to worship God, serve Richmond, and work for its renewal.

City Church began as a simple worship service of about 30 people in September of 2006 (then known as Franklin Street Community). We became a church in 2008 and called our first Pastor, Rev. Erik Bonkovsky, in July of that year. Joshua Earman joined us as Assistant Pastor in 2015, and Jim Pulizzi came on staff as Pastor of Children & Families in 2016. 

Since that first service City Church has grown to a body of over 200 worshippers representing a variety of stages of life: college students; young professionals; families; and a few retirees. 

We meet every Sunday at 4pm for worship at 1627 Monument Avenue. We hope you'll join us! 


City Church of Richmond is a congregation operating under the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA)

Worship at City Church is a time for us to gather together and celebrate the good news of Jesus Christ. All are welcome, and please come as you are!

Before You Get HEre

If you're planning to visit, please let us know! We'd love to hear from you.

We also hope you'll take a minute to read our Who We Are statement to get a better idea of what we're all about.

when you arrive

We worship together every Sunday at 4pm at 1627 Monument Avenue. Off-street parking is available in the lot located directly behind the building; it can be accessed via Lombardy Street or Allen Avenue. On-street parking can be found on the surrounding blocks, as well.

Nursery care for newborns through age 3 is available for the duration of the service. Children ages 4 through 2nd grade are welcome to participate in Children's Worship, which takes place during the sermon. (To learn more about our Children & Family ministry, head this way.)

during the service

As you walk into the service our Welcome Team will be on-hand to greet you and give you a worship bulletin (here's a sample). In addition to laying out the liturgy, the bulletin offers insight into why we do what we do during the service. But really, we keep things pretty simple. Worship at City Church offers time to reflect, pray, sing (traditional hymns and newer selections), and look to God's word.

We also celebrate the Lord's Supper every week as a reminder of our ongoing hunger and God's ongoing provision.

If you have any questions about City Church's approach to worship, don't hesitate to get in touch with a member of our staff or leadership.

Before you go

Be sure to fill out a visitor's card (it's a tear-off located on the back cover of the worship bulletin) where you can share prayer requests, sign up for our email newsletter, and let us know if you'd like to get connected to a City Group. Just pass it along to a City Church pastor or staff member so we can be in touch.

And please feel free to pop into the parlor for a cup of coffee or head out to the playground if you've got little ones looking to burn off some energy. City Church members and attendees love a good post-worship chat, so you're sure to have company!
