At the end of each Sunday service – Starting 18th Nov – for 6 Sundays we would like to bless you with an advent pack to take home and read individually, as a couple or as a family.
Please make sure you collect yours and join in the readings as we seek to focus our attention on the real meaning of Christmas.

How it works: Pairs/Couples attend 3 dinners (if possible) Each couple will host a main course for 6 people, take an entrée for 6 people and take a dessert for 6 people on different nights (so you only have to prepare ONE part of the meal each dinner). You’ll dine with different people each time. You don’t have to be MasterChef, its about quality time spent with others. These are fun evenings and a great way to get to know people better.
We had heaps positive feedback from those that joined in last year so we really encourage you to participate.…SIGN UP TODAY with Shelley or Roz!
Join with us as we support Ethan in his decision to be baptised.

10am Celebration Service
Join us this Easter Sunday as we Celebrate the Unexpected Joy of a Risen Saviour
* Easter Egg Hunt for the kids *
While darkness seemingly won on Good Friday, light proved to be more powerful on Easter Sunday. While we consider death to be the last word, God’s power proved that love is the last word. How do we know? Because He lives. Because Jesus lives within our hearts, and he wants to have a relationship with every one of us. Ready to experience the unexpected? Say yes to a relationship with the risen Christ. Christ is Risen INDEED!
10am Communion & Remembrance Service followed by Hot Cross Buns for Morning Tea
Join us this Easter Friday as we remember His Amazing Love
“God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners ~ Romans 5:8 (NLT).
Everything that Jesus did for you He did out of love.
Saving us is the greatest and most concrete demonstration of God’s love, the definitive display of His grace throughout time and eternity. ~ David Jeremiah
Various Sunday Evenings, 7pm - 8.30pm
5 Evenings including teaching & discussion on the following topics:
- 25th Mar: How can we know the bible is true & accurate?- Matt Flannagan
- 8th April: How can God be all power & love yet allow suffering & Evil? - Matt Flannagan

Remember the excitement of receiving gifts as a child? As we get older, Christmas loses that magic touch and we lose the true meaning somewhere among the busy stores and empty bags of fruit cake mix.
Our gift to you is to help you find the joy of Christmas again.
Join us at Orewa Community Church as we discover the truth of Christ's birth and why His birth was the greatest gift of all!!
