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. 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 is a congregation of 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. On-street parking can be found on the surrounding blocks. Off-street parking is available in the lot located directly behind the building; it can be accessed via Lombardy Street or Allen Avenue. Parking in the back lot also gives you access to the building’s ground level entrance and elevator.

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.)

Coffee is set up in the Parlor—feel free to come in a grab a cup.

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.

After the service & Before You Go

We have something for kids ages 4 and up every Sunday after church. It’s called City Kids, and you can learn more about it over here. On second and fourth Sundays we have Sunday Formation in room 303 from 5:30pm until 6:30pm.

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.
