We are a diverse group of people who share a faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord, and a desire to follow his example of serving one another and our community, and caring for the world that he loves.
You are most welcome to visit our two beautiful churches in Takaka and Collingwood, to enjoy the peace and quiet and to take time to pray.
We would also love to have you join us in worship. Our worship services are warm and informal in style, while also including some traditional elements. Music includes a variety of hymns and songs. Holy Communion is usually included twice a month. Prayer is central. Preaching is Christ-centred, life-related and biblical in content. Our Collingwood services also include a creative Children’s Programme during term time.
