North Shore


Grace City Church started its North Shore Congregation in March 2018 with a small team and a big vision to see God shape us  in order to shape the city of Chatswood and the surrounding area. 


Since that time, we have seen God continue to add to our number and we are excited for all that lies ahead for us as a community. 

We meet most Sunday mornings in various places!

If you'd like to visit us, we'd love for you to get in touch as we may be doing house church or praising God outdoors! 



Feel free to "come as you are" - and you can expect to be warmly welcomed as together we spend time singing to God, encountering His presence, and hearing a Bible teaching.

There's always a group of us having lunch together after the service, with plenty of multicultural food options for us to choose from right on our doorstep!

We are led by James & Heather Ryburn along with Craig & Robyn Milligan


James and Heather Ryburn

James has been at Grace City since it kicked off in the early 2000’s.  Having grown up within this church community (aside from a few years serving a church plant in Japan), Grace City is his family in so many ways. James loves meeting new people and helping them connect with the church community. He is passionate about Christians doing life together and among other things helps oversee how people become integrated into church community, City Groups, and Mens and Womens initiatives.

In 2015 James joined the Grace City staff after 12 years working in a variety of project management and business leadership roles. He serves as an elder, an honour and responsibility he does not take lightly.

James and Heather have three young daughters, who they are passionate about seeing grow into all God has called them to be.

We love doing life together!

’The Church’ is not a building. It’s a community of people building their lives together and growing in God.

Life wasn’t meant to be done alone so if you’re not in a City Group yet, reach out and we’ll help you find one. 


City Groups gather in various locations, at different times, and are full of diverse people.

We have groups gathering in the Lower North Shore, Upper North Shore, Forest area, and North Ryde.
