As Erik and his family enjoy a time of rest, renewal, and refreshment during his summer sabbatical, we will provide an opportunity for City Church’s congregation, staff, and leadership to explore these ideas, as well.

On Saturday, June 24th, from 9am to noon at All Saints Presbyterian Church (3000 Grove Avenue), Wade Bradshaw pastor of spiritual formation at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Charlottesville, will lead City Church in a morning of congregational renewal. We will use this time to be together, as a church family, and learn about the spiritual habits that will maintain the health of our church as a body and as individuals.

This event is free and childcare will be provided at no cost. 


  • 9am — Childcare drop-off; refreshments
  • 9:15-10am — Session 1
  • 10-10:15am — Break
  • 10:15-11am* — Session 2
  • 11am — Childcare dismissal 

*You'll note that our time with Wade ends at 11am. We've built time into the schedule for attendees to go out to lunch afterwards and continue the morning's conversation. Several folks have volunteered to serve as "lunch captains", and we will introduce them at the end of the session. If you'd like to organize a lunch of your own, please do!
