Sunday family service

SUNDAY morning SERVICE 10 am - (includes kids church, intermediates and creche).

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. A place to be continually growing.

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 a quarter and includes  a family time of celebration and prayer, music and singing, bible readings, prayer and a sermon. We love children, they are always welcome. We have special programmes for each age group available each Sunday morning (including creche).

We celebrate Communion on the 1st Sunday of each month. 

Tea and espresso coffee  are served afterwards and everyone is welcome (and encouraged) to share in this special time of connection. 

Sunday night service 7 PM ( in recess until 
2024)

(Prayer, reflection, topical discussion, Q and A, worship). (IN RECESS)

Our Sunday night service is a little less structured and a little more interactive and youthful. We gather together - and interact with each other as  we 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. 

 Kids Church

Here at RBC, we love our tamariki (children) - they are a welcome, precious and vibrant part of our faith community.

Jenny Lee heads up our kids church. 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.

Creche

Crèche is for all pre-school children and the team is guided by Ruth McCullum and Wendy Budge. 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, simple faith based activities (crafts are a hit with the wee ones!) and music, free play and lots of joy, fun and love. We have quality toys and play apparatus.

We provide water and popcorn as a snack.

Parents are welcome to stay but are equally encouraged to go and enjoy the service and leave the children with the team.  We would always come and get the parents if the children were unhappy or unsettled.

Visitors

We welcome visitors and newcomers. We love children and youth. 

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.
