OUR MINISTRIES & MEETINGS
Apart from our weekly services, we are actively involved in ministry, both collectively and individually.
Our services are held every Saturday at 2.00 pm at the Mt Eden Senior Citizens Club Hall, on the corner of Brixton Road and Dominion Road, Balmoral. The hall is located at the northern end of the Mt Eden War Memorial Hall, opposite Potters Park (see the map on the contact page). There is usually plenty of parking available on Brixton Road, or in a free car park just behind the hall (accessed from Brixton Road). Services generally last about 90 minutes. We begin with a few hymns, and perhaps a brief item or address from one or two members, another hymn or two, followed by the main message of the day - a sermon of about 45 minutes in length. Afternoon tea is served right after each service, and plenty of stimulating fellowship ensues!
We are delighted to welcome visitors to any of our services. If you are in Auckland, please feel free to join us anytime!
From time to time, circumstances may cause us to temporarily change the service time, move to another hall, or perhaps cancel a service. Please feel free to ring the pastor at his contact number to confirm the time and place of services on any specific weekend.
Our events page has more information on upcoming meetings.
Each of our services has a time for intercessory prayer, where the needs of others are brought before God. We also have times for more private prayer support. If you have something you wish us to collectively pray about, please let us know.
In various parts of Auckland, our members meet together in small groups for worship, support, and study during the week. These meetings are valuable in providing opportunities to share, and to have prayer time.
Our congregation are regularly involved in work in their own local communities and support a number of charities and services.
bible studies and training
We have regular Bible studies, and also the opportunity for workshop training at annual retreats and conferences. Additional, flexible, study is made available through Ambassador College of Christian Ministry. Offering a quality, structured programme, ACCM's range of courses provide mature, doctrinaly sound training as the foundation for Christian ministry.
As a small congregation, we have a mixture of live music and pre-recorded songs. We love both old hymns and upbeat modern songs.
We enjoy giving visitors the opportunity to contribute Special Music. If you would like to join our music team, please contact Rex Morgan, who will put you in touch with Lianne Trevarthen, our Worship Co-ordinator. Lianne maintains a worship team website for those involved in this ministry.
Our national magazine, Inside Life, is edited by Rex Morgan, our pastor. It is distributed free of charge, and is also made available online.
Many of our members contribute articles and insight that is used in the magazine. The magazine is written primarily as an outreach for the unchurched and to revive belief in those who have little church contact. The Auckland congregation also hand-delivers the magazine to households around our meeting place, and in other parts of the city.
We are grateful for the contributions that make the continued publication of the magazine possible. Visit the Inside Life website for current and past issues. Inside Life also has a Facebook page where you can leave feedback.
