Welcome To Mangapapa Church


What's on this week...

We pray for Sonya Van Wyk, as she settles in to camp life in Vancouver. May it be a time of blessing, both a blessing for those she works with, and for her; very distant from home but never far from Jesus

We pray for Grace Levy, who is playing the National Futsal Championships in Palmerston North this coming Saturday,. Grace has been travelling down to Hastings every second Sunday to train, as well as training in Gisborne, so a huge committment on her part. Be inspired by all the wonderful footbal from the World Cup, and have a fantastic tournament.

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness

James 3:17-18

 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.
