Summer Sunday family service
SUNDAY morning FAMILY SERVICE 10 am (includes kids church, youth group and creche).
Also, check out the sermon tab for the online sermon and or audio sermons.
We encourage and welcome any visitors to come and join us in our relaxed and friendly all-age worship service. Our style is warm and engaging and the biblical teaching is relevant to our everyday lives. This is a space to enjoy and learn of God, Jesus and the Holy spirit, for prayer and praise, unpacking the word and to bump into one another - which causes us to grow, as we share faith, laughter, tears and the ups and downs of life.
The Pastors and prayer team are available to pray with you after the service. We also encourage you to pray for and with each other.
Each service usually runs for about an hour and includes celebration, hymns/contemporary songs, readings, prayer, sermon and a relaxed kids church and creche.
We celebrate Communion on the 1st Sunday of each month.
Tea and espresso coffee are served afterwards and everyone is welcome to share in this special time of connection.
SUNDAY NIGHT SERVICE 7 PM (Prayer, reflection, topical discussion, Q and A, worship).
Our Sunday night service is a little less structured and a little more interactive. We gather together - unpack the word and current/relevant topics and ideas and worship through music, prayer, stories and discussion. We often focus and dig deeper into an idea or a particular theme and scripture. We always start with a light supper of tea, coffee and home-baked snacks. We have a focus on LENT at present.
Here at RBC, we love our tamariki (children) - they are a welcome, precious and vibrant part of our faith community.
Our children's programmes run at the same time as the morning service. If you are primary school-aged - come and join us out in the hall after a short time in the main service for an exciting and fun time learning about our great big God. We have a wonderful kids church team and an excellent curriculum. This programme is run during term time.
During the holidays we switch to a holiday programme which is less structured but equally as fun.
Contact the office if you have any questions.
Intermediate aged kids church. A fun and intentional programme to grow young people in their faith and friendship. Led by our Youth Pastor Grace during the morning service and follows the school term.
SUNDAY MORNING PROGRAMME AND FRIDAY NIGHT FUN!
Our youth activities and connections are led by our Youth pastor, Grace. Make sure you get in touch with her or you can catch her on a Sunday morning. See Youth tab for information about Friday night YOUTH group and the Sunday morning programme
Crèche is for all pre-school children. The children gather in the small lounge opposite the main auditorium after the celebration time in the service and supervised by a small team of caring and loving people. All pre-schoolers are welcome and any little ones who are not quite ready to go into Kids Church yet. The morning consists of mat time and connection, faith based activities and music, free play and lots of joy, fun and love.
We encourage the children to bring their own drink bottle and snacks (if required) with them.
We welcome visitors and newcomers.
On a Sunday morning, we have a team who will help connect you with people and orientate you to our church building and worship service. Please make yourself known to them and feel free to ask any questions. We are here to help.
CONNECT CARDS: We want to connect with you - to ensure you feel welcome and part of the Church community. We have connect cards available for you to fill out giving you options like: enabling us to touch base and organise a coffee catch up, add you to our communications list, let you know more about RBC - that kind of thing. These are available with the newcomer team and at the information desk.
A few times a year we hold a visitors/newcomers afternoon tea where you can chat with the Pastors and leadership team. They will share a little more about the church, and hopefully, have your questions answered.
