Two Cities Area: City Deanery
The City of London Deanery represents all the parish and guild churches within the ‘Square Mile’.
The City Churches’ primary mission is to reach out to the hundreds of thousands of people who flood into the Square Mile every weekday – as well as the few thousand who actually live here! – with the good news of Jesus Christ.
The people we are seeking to serve may be affluent and outwardly successful, but they have the same needs and anxieties as everyone else – they long for love, acceptance, security, and fulfilment and don’t realise that all of these things are found chiefly in the Lord Jesus who died so that they might be reconciled to God and enjoy the fulness of life.
We do this in a variety of ways, reflecting the great diversity of traditions amongst the dozens of City Churches, ranging from traditional choral services amidst great architecture through to Bible studies in coffee shops where people may encounter Jesus for the first time in their adult lives.
