Discover ways to support local initiatives and international partnerships.
Eastgate has a heart for the church outside of the church. Through the church’s tithing and mission Sundays, we’re able to partner with missionaries abroad who are doing incredible things to build the kingdom of God.
For us, Global Missions is all about responding to the Biblical call to serve and share the Gospel with people all around the globe.
Our mission partnerships are determined by the Eastgate missions team and our Church elders. Our partnerships offer opportunities to serve through supporting infrastructure projects, teaching and mentoring Bible study leaders, administration and fundraising and evangelism. Countries in which we currently have mission partnerships include Indonesia, Mongolia and Vanuatu. We are also proud to partner with Missions Interlink New Zealand, World Outreach and Wycliffe Bible Translators.
We’re passionate about making a positive change in the East Auckland Community in any way possible. Through our community initiatives, we can operate in areas of need.
Chaplains are ordinary people who volunteer to work in schools, prisons, workplaces, sports teams, the armed services and hospitals. Each person is trained in crisis intervention as well as day to day caring appropriate to where they are placed. Eastgate has a small number of chaplains we support and partner with in our local community.
We are privileged to be able to support the team at Women’s Refuge in a very practical way. Each year we donate food for Christmas hampers and supply toiletries and birthday gifts for the families.
This free debt help service goes beyond budget help. We have coaches to help people develop a unique plan for each client. This includes creating a budget that prioritises food and housing, taking over all creditor relationships, negotiating with creditors, and establishing a long term repayment plan—so that families can get out of debt and stay out of debt.
