Sharing the love of Jesus Christ through purposeful action. We aim to make a tangible and lasting difference in our communities both locally and globally through a range of initiatives and strategic partnerships.
“These three things remain, hope, faith and love. But the greatest of these is love”
- Corinthians 13:13
We aim to create a family environment in low decile schools that encourages and uplifts the kid’s spirits while feeding them a healthy, cooked breakfast. Our teams have a heart to see children in these schools thrive in a safe setting full of love and fun.
At Christmas, we come together as a church family to shine God’s light and love to families in
need over the Christmas season. We pack and deliver food essentials and Christmas treats to
empower these families to celebrate Christmas. We have partnered with Christmas Box
This enables us to bless more people in our community than we have ever done before.

We receive donations to the storehouse and from there, we distribute care packages out to
those in need. We do this through pastoral relationship and through our various ARISE Care
initiatives. This also empowers us to respond in times of emergency. Donating to ARISE Care
will help us to keep the storehouse stocked, or you can contact our team to directly donate

Our Super Mums team help and support solo mums within the ARISE Community and beyond. Regular events are held to celebrate, thank, and bless these incredible parents, as well as ongoing support and care.
We send teams into local prisons to run worship services monthly on Sunday afternoon. We have had incredible testimonies of life change and transformation from these services. We create an environment to bless inmates and provide a supportive environment to connect and share.
We work alongside Red Cross to provide a care package full of essential food that is given to every refugee family as they arrive in New Zealand. We also run events for these families to welcome them to their new home.
In September, as a church family, we will come together to serve our community through
multiple projects across our cities. You can be a part of projects such as local charity
working bees, school makeovers, blessing local heroes and much more. We believe helping those
in need shows the love of Jesus in a practical way and makes a huge difference in our
communities! You can download the SERVE app in the link below.
