About_hero image.png


“We are a church with a passion for God and to see people experience all that God has for them.


We see Christianity not as a religion but a relationship, so our role as a church is to see people come to know Jesus in a personal way. 


We are a church community for all ages, cultures and life experiences and we'd love to connect with you.”

– Nu and Taua Telea

Our vision


To God in worship, together with church community and to people who are far away from God.


By the Holy Spirit, in the Word of God so that by faith we can use our gifts, talents, and resources to be great ambassadors of Jesus Christ.


Our communities, our city, our nation, and the nations of the world, believing that there is hope for all in the transforming power of God's love.


“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.”
