A Church for everyone

Sunday Services


Sundays at 9am, 10:45am & 5:30pm

Join us for church this week when our community meets to praise God through authentic worship, thought-provoking teachings and deeper relationships. Supervised children’s programmes are available at our 9am services.



The heart of this church is in it’s community. Established in 2017, our Te Kauwhata campus is known for its welcoming nature, strong support network and generous hospitality. A supervised children’s programme is available.


9am online

If you are unable to be in the room with us, we stream every Sunday a service from YouTube and Facebook, directly to your place, so that you can continue to do church with us. Catch up on missed services here too.

A message from our Senior Pastor

Welcome to Eastgate. We are a diverse church, knowing that God The Father loves all people so we’re living with confidence that Jesus can transform anyone. Faith in Jesus is radically changing our lives, our families and our communities. Come along to one of our services, join a mid-week group, and know the power of God’s Spirit as we honour Him together. We’re from all kinds of places and backgrounds. We’re not perfect; we don’t expect you to be, everyone is welcome here.

Choosing Faith

Ask questions at alpha

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions, in a relaxed setting, that investigate the hard questions on life, faith and God. Share your perspective and ask the real questions in a supportive and understanding network of people.

Say yes

Take the next step in your faith journey and respond. Whether you’re giving your heart to Jesus for the first time, making a recommitment, or wanting to be baptised, we’d love to share in this decision with you. 

Pray With Certainty

We believe in the power of prayer for our church, our community and all of Aotearoa. If you have a need or would like to know more about prayer opportunities and events within the church, click the button below.
