We are ordinary people seeking to be like Jesus in and to our community here in Welcome Bay, Tauranga. We gather on Sundays; we grow together in LifeGroups during the week; and we go into our community to serve it in the name of Jesus as He leads us.

Please feel free to come and join us on Sundays - we hope you find a place with us where you can belong.
