Church Services

At this stage, we are waiting to see if the recent alert level changes will necessitate a change to our service times this Sunday. 

Should we still be at level 2 on Sunday 21st February, we will be holding two morning services at 9am and 11am, our plan is to have Kids' Church at both of these times. At this stage, we do not foresee any impact to Night Church.

Events

Unfortunately, we have had to cancel the Ash Wednesday combined service. Currently, no other events have been impacted by the change in alert levels.

Home Groups

At this stage, our Home Groups and Join Me Groups are not affected by the current alert level. We encourage all of our Home Groups and Join Me Groups to stay physically distanced if possible.

Home Group Leaders do not have to run their group if they do not feel comfortable doing go, if you choose to do this, please get in contact with all of the members of your home group and let them know.

Resources & Support

We want to help support you in this difficult time, to do this we have a variety of resources we can give you to help as well as ways you can get support.

 

We have COVID-19 Tracer Booklets that we can give you, these are to help those who either can't use the NZ COVID Tracer App, or who do not want to use it. We have these in English, Te Reo Māori, Simplified Chinese and Korean. You can pick them up in the foyer of the church or ring the church office and we can drop these to your house. Please feel free to take multiple booklets, each one should last around 1 month.

If the current situation is making you feel anxious or concerned, please feel free to contact the church office so we can organize someone to pray with you.

Food Bank

ABC have partnered with two other local churches, St Christopher's Anglican and St Mark's Presbyterian, to start a community food bank to help those who have been significantly affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic. If you have been affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic and would like some financial assistance, please get in contact with the church office.
