We believe that Church is all about doing life with God, together.
Sometimes the ‘together’ part can be a challenge. So, to help you connect with others we have a couple of pathways to help: Service Teams, and Small Groups.
During the week we have a couple of groups that exist to foster relationship and connection. These are usually around an activity such as craft, or games.
The Craft Room
Every Wednesday during the school term.
From 9:30am in the Church Cafe.
The Craft Room is a group that is open to all, where you can meet and connect with others over craft.
For more info, you can contact Sue McCallum at: 06 877 5397
First and Third Wednesday of the Month.
From 1pm in the church Foyer and Cafe.
The Prime Timers is a 60+ connect group where you can get to know others over a game of indoor bowls, board games, or the occasional outing.

In family life, sometimes there are tasks that need doing. Serving on one of our teams isn’t just about ‘getting the task done’, it’s also about building relationships with others while you serve.
Sunday morning worship is a significant time in the life of our Church, requiring volunteers to make it happen. From the cafe team, to children’s ministry, there are lots of places where you can get involved.
During the Week
From Youth Studies to Alpha Courses, and Mainly Music to Craft Groups, there’s lots happening at Church during the week which utilizes a range of skills: from cooking meals, to setting up, to being a good listener.
Small Groups are small, casual, informal gatherings where we do life together.
