The City is a group of students and leaders who endeavour to “be a light” on the campus of NCC and in our world. The name itself - The City - comes from Matthew 5:14 - “You are the light of the world. A city situated on a hill cannot be hidden.”.
We meet regularly on Thursday nights from 6:30 - 8:30. The night consists of games and laughter, worship and teaching, prayer and community. We have 12 student leaders, our Campus Ministry Team (CMT’s), who lead our break out small groups on Thursday and help facilitate discussion and lead in prayer. They also serve in Chapel - either on the worship team, or to read Scripture, and even give the weekly message.
We have seen this ministry grow over the past 2 years seeing an average of 60-70 students come out on a weekly basis. The City is a safe place for students to be themselves and ask the tough questions of faith. In doing so, many students have come to know Jesus in a personal way and grow in their relationship with God. And to do this in community with their peers has been awesome to see develop.
We are thankful to God for His unending faithfulness to us!
Weekly Chapel Online
Meeting together for Chapel time on Monday mornings is a way to focus our week on Jesus as a school community. We will continue with our online version of weekly Chapel meetings for our students, and post devotions, music, and some thoughts to help us focus on Jesus during this start to each week. Information on Chapel meetings will be available on Edsby.
