We are a community of believers who are very passionate about the things of God and with a passion for people, our community and our world. Our culture is characterized by worship, pursuing the presence of God, promoting personal renewal and life transformation, promoting family and empowering people to walk in the Spirit.

We are a multi-generational church, a community of folk of all ages and backgrounds with a heart for families and with a strong emphasis on being salt and light and representing God well in our community. In health and education, business and retail, social services and many other organisations, as well as in our neighbourhoods and in sports and recreation.

Our Community
We network with other Richmond and Waimea churches to search out God’s strategies and pursue his plans for building his church in our community and districts.
