Services under the COVID 'Traffic Light' System
We have resumed in-person worship services at the normal times (Sundays 10:30am & 6:00 pm) under the Traffic Light system. Due to gathering restrictions we require all visitors and members to book their attendance before coming to the 10:30am service, and both services will be conducted in two simultaneous gatherings in separate areas of the facility.
Our church does not require a vaccine pass for entry to in-person worship services.
We will continue to livestream all services and these can be acessed via our livestreaming platform.
We are a diverse community united in the grace of the gospel. We are a family of God's own making. We have many flaws, but we are growing in this grace each day.
We desire to embrace and proclaim the historic, orthodox Christian faith in a way that is understandable and accessible to our fellow East Aucklanders.
There is room in this church for you! Please come along and meet us.
WHERE ARE WE?
We also have Bible study groups that meet regularly all around the East Auckland area, including Beachlands, Howick, Pakuranga, and of course, Bucklands Beach.
SUNDAY SERVICE TIMES
10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
(Join us after for a coffee!)

We are excited to have James Hyslop as our teaching Pastor.
James moved to East Auckland with his family to be our pastor in early 2021. James grew up in the South Island and recently graduated from the Reformed Theological College in Melbourne, Australia.
In addition to presenting God's word in a clear and relatable manner, James brings a passion for people - to be involved in their lives and to see them grow in a deeper faith in Jesus Christ.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
...is the Son of the Living God. He came in flesh to reveal the grace and truth of God. He died to pay the penalty for sins. He rose to life everlasting. He is coming again to make all things new.
...is the written word of God. It is the final authority for all we must believe, embrace, and obey.
...is the only means of salvation. It is freely given by God to all who draw near to him in faith.
...is needed to receive the gift of salvation. An enduring faith is the evidence that God has worked salvation into our hearts. This too is a gift from God accomplished by the work of the Holy Spirit.
CREEDS & CONFESSIONS
...are faithful summaries of the Bible’s core teachings. We reference these often to protect us from inventing our own interpretations of God’s Word. You can view the various creeds and confessions we uphold here.
We are part of a larger group of churches known collectively as the Reformed Churches of New Zealand (RCNZ).
Together, we hold a common set of beliefs and practices, and work together for mutual encouragement, accountability, and furthering the kingdom of God through the proclamation of the Gospel of Grace in New Zealand.
