We are a Community Church located in the Northwestern suburb of Mangapapa, in Gisborne City, New Zealand, where the sun shines first in the world of every new day.

Our Church roots are Methodist & Presbyterian and we maintain that connection as a Union Parish through the Uniting Congregations of Aotearoa NZ. On 13 April 2013, we  celebrated 100 years here. Our Worship Services are best described as contemporary in style and charismatic.  We share Communion in the 10am Service on the first Sunday of each month, and in the evening Service, mid month.  We undertake Believers Baptism by immersion.

We are a church of all ages – from 0 to 94 and we enjoy worship together.  Our focus is Jesus Christ as Lord and ‘There is nothing that the nearness of Jesus cannot overcome’.  Thanks for visiting our website and we hope you find helpful information here.
