Connect

We’d love you to get involved with what we’re doing in our church. Whether it’s a home study group or a fun social group, or serving in one of our ministries, there are so many ways you can become part of the fabric of our church and find a sense of belonging.

We welcome people from all walks of life, regardless of where they are in their spiritual journey. We all have a part to play and each one of us brings something unique from the creation of God when we engage.

Kids & Youth

Kids are a fundamental part of the life and ministry of Omokoroa Community Church and we are passionate about helping them grow in knowing, loving and serving God, by teaching the gospel in a safe and fun environment.

We strive to offer children and youth a ministry that complements the primary role of the parents and caregivers in nurturing their children in the Christian faith.

Kidzone

Kidzone is our Sunday School programme for school-aged children. It is run by a team of volunteers who are dedicated to teaching our children the love of Christ, the truth of the Bible, and the joy of Christian fellowship. Kidzone meets in the church hall following a time of worship at the 10.00am service during school terms. The program includes fun games, morning tea, bible teaching and a craft/activity. A less formal programme is provided during school holidays and on Easter Sunday/Christmas Day. On the first of Sunday of each month, the children are invited to join their families in celebrating the Communion service. Whether or not they receive communion is at the discretion of their caregivers.

IGIRLZ

I-girlz (formerly ICONZ 4 Girlz) is a Christ-centred programme for girls aged 8-11 years, which incorporates the Christian message with lots of fun, adventure and learning. The programme offers skills and values based activities in a safe and supportive environment, and seeks to engage and develop girls physically, socially and spiritually. Girls earn badges to recognise their involvement and achievements. Sessions run 6.00pm-7.30pm on Monday evenings during school terms at the church hall. The programme is led by local mums, Sally Benton, Carolyn Keith, Tanya Van Heerden and Nikki Mee.

New to Church?

It's great to have you with us!

We know it can be challenging to find your way into a church community, so we want to make it a bit easier and get to know you better. Perhaps you've been coming along for a little while and you like what we offer - you're ready to make Omokoroa Community Church your home. Or perhaps you just want to find out more about the heartbeat of our church and who we are. Every six months or so we host a lunch for newcomers - it's a great opportunity to meet other people who are new to the church, as well as our leaders of the various functions within the church. It is also an opportunity to ask questions about how we operate and what we believe and teach. For details of the next newcomers lunch, please contact Tanya at the church office. We look forward to getting to know you better!
