Hui Tamariki

Our children stay in the service for the first 20 minutes during worship, offering, celebrations and notices. Hui Tamariki is for school age and these programmes are to support parents in the discipleship of their children and help kids feel part of the church through using biblical, relevant and child-focused curriculum that invites personal faith and growth. Parents with toddlers are welcome to stay in the service, or you can sit with them in the Lounge to the side of the auditorium.

Creative Ministry

This encompasses a worship team of vocalists, musicians, data and sound technicians, dancers and artists who have a heart for worship and artistic expression.

Life Groups and Neighbourhood Community Groups

We meet in homes to develop fellowship, our gifts, our character, our Christian mind and to pray and care for each other and grow community. Our Neighbourhood Community Groups are focused on meeting locally and partnering with what God is doing in our neighbourhoods.

Whanau, Fun and Food

A monthly activity is arranged that is for teens and their families (and anyone who is keen for an adventure).
