Everyday church for everyday life
Because Jesus wants to be with us in the ordinary stuff… It’s not only a Sunday thing, it’s an everyday thing.
Everyone feels the need for deep connections, yet so often we feel alone in a crowd. Let’s share life together.
Seeing a person, community or city restored is a thrilling thing. That’s why we’re so excited to be part of the greatest restoration project in history, and we’d love for you to take part in it.
The best stories are never hidden, they’re made to be shared by people like us. Be connected, be restored, share the story.
Every family needs a photo album… ours just happens to be digital!

Inner West Church is formed around several ‘Missional Communities’ that are learning to live out all that we are called to be.
What are we called to be?
The Bible teaches that we have been adopted into God’s family through Jesus. This compels us to love one another as brothers and sisters. We treat each other as children of God in everything — sharing our money, time, resources, needs, hurts, successes. We value knowing each other’s stories, and delight in sharing the family’s strengths and struggles. The best way to be in community is to live life together as God’s family.
When we were at our lowest, Jesus came to serve us by giving his life for us. This truth frees us up to follow his example by serving the least, the last, and the lost. Living as servants of the King, we give of ourselves, presenting a visible truth to Jesus’ kingdom and the power of the gospel to change lives.
Just as Jesus was sent to reach us, so we are in turn sent to our communities to proclaim the good news of God’s kingdom — the Gospel — fulfilling the commission of Jesus.
An MC is more than a Bible study or a small group. They are communities of people who are being powerfully changed, and led, by the Spirit, for the mission of seeing our local area flourish physically and spiritually as people have daily encounters with Jesus.
By living as family, servants and missionaries, we become lifelong learners of Jesus our teacher—this is what it means to be disciples. As His disciples, we embrace the gospel, are embodied in a new identity and are enabled to obey his commands. Missional communities offer a rich environment for every disciple to flourish.
Put it in a sentence
My missional community is tight like a family, we’re there for each other in the ups and downs.
Missional community is where we help each other see God’s love for us.
My missional community gives me the courage to talk about Jesus more openly.
