City Life Church is a growing, lively and loving, non-denominational Christian church with a contemporary flavour and a grace-filled approach.




CLC wants to make a lasting difference locally, nationally and globally. The church is situated in the heart of Portsmouth and attracts people of all different ages, nationalities and backgrounds from across the city and its surrounding areas.

We are a community of people who are in process. We have imperfect messy lives, but we are pursuing and experiencing a transforming relationship with Jesus and with each other.

City Life is a place where you can come and rest in God. A place full of welcome, honour, love, compassion, joy and friendship. A place where you can grow and learn and a place to help and give back.

A lively God loving church with an amazing family feel.
Love how this church really does put back in to the local community and wider.

The best church I've ever been to. A really caring and fantastic family. If you need a hug and a kind listening ear,
this is the church for you!

Awesome church which moves in the spirit with a great worship team and Biblically challenging word every week!

David Harman

From day one in 2008, myself and my family have been welcomed here. We feel a part of something really special,
a place that is surrounded in God's love. The support in this Church has been overwhelming at times and we feel so blessed to be part of it.

City Life is a second home and extended family. It's always warm, welcoming and friendly.
