Our leaders & team

Omokoroa Community Church is a "co-operating venture" under the umbrella of the Anglican, Methodist and Presbyterian Churches of New Zealand. That said, we are autonomous and self-governing in the running of day-to-day matters, and the congregation, led by an elected Parish Council, is made up of people from more than 20 different denominational backgrounds.

We are a community of followers of Jesus Christ, committed to live by faith, to be known by love, and to be a voice of hope in Omokoroa and the surrounding area. We are extremely grateful to have such a dedicated team of volunteers to serve our church and wider community:
