Our vision is to see people realize their God given dreams
We want to intentionally equip people, so that they embody our core values as they serve and build the church
Our heart is to have an outward focus, that we reflect the love of Jesus in all that we do and wherever we journey, as followers of Christ
We believe that every area of life can be transformed by the love of God. Our role is to join in with God wherever we are: school; work; home; sports-ground; playground or battleground! God has not only saved us from something (our sin, brokenness and it's eternal consequences), he has also saved us into something (his family, which we call the church) and saved us for something (a new calling to join with him in his work). Our calling is not only to tell people God's message but to embody that message and allow God's words to take on flesh again. We only play a small role but eventually his kingdom will spread to every part of life... just like yeast spreading throughout dough.
Spirit Life | Prayer | God’s Word | Generosity | Equipping & Releasing | Fun | Authentic Relationships
Prayer is an important part of our journey as a church. We believe that prayer changes the world and changes lives, and that in some profound way God desires our involvement.
Prayer is a mystery, an adventure and a privilege. None of us ever feel like we are professionals in this, but it is exciting, offering our heartfelt pleas, standing together and seeing God move - often in miraculous ways.
We believe that giving from the heart is important and in many respects, a gift to God. Whilst there is no obligation to give, we feel that those who consider themselves part of the church would want to support our ministry and this is a great indication of their love for the church and the building of God’s kingdom.

To be a Christian means a desire to follow Jesus.
It’s both a moment and a process.
It’s a moment in the sense that it requires intention and will to make the decision to respond to Jesus' love and decide to follow Him.
It’s a process in the sense that it’s an ongoing journey, a pilgrimage through life’s up and downs, complexities and life stages to keep following Him.
How do you know you are following Jesus?
You will have a soft heart toward Him that is quick to respond to Him and desires to please Him and you will have a soft heart toward people.
You will see the world through a new lens, seeing both its beauty and its pain in a new light and will begin to desire to make a positive difference in the world.
Our hope is that every person who comes along to CCC and is regularly committed, has a solid network of care.
This is one of the reasons that we value regular small groups as pivotal to the health of the church family, as they are often the initiation points for pastoral support.
If further support is needed, our Pastoral team is available to suggest specialist areas of counselling or referrals to people/places in CCC or the city.
Other areas of support and getting to know people include mens and womens events, social events, Sunday lunches after the service, youth activities, young marrieds evenings and our regular FUEL (training and equipping) seminars.
We have on-call pastoring teams available every week for pastoral issues that cannot be met by other support systems. Crisis-care is offered for emergencies. The information for both of these is available by ringing the CCC office.
At CCC, we think every part of life matters and an important part of that is in the area of relationships.
Marriage is something that we are passionate about and we’re excited to offer pre-marriage courses through ‘Real Relationships’ (www.enrichnz.co.nz) and through Alpha (www.alpha.org.nz) to get your marriage off to the best possible start.
Courses are also available for those who are already married or in a long term committed relationship.
Both of these courses are suitable for churched and un-churched couples and are run locally either at the CCC buildings on Pascal Street, or in someone’s home.
The courses are encouraging, thought-provoking and based around food!
Details will be posted on this web-site under events or if you’re interested please sign up for our newsletter or contact the office.
Baby Dedications, Marriage Services and Funerals
Life is full of times of celebration and sorrow. Moments of wonder, and moments of reflection.
Birth, marriage and death.
As a Christian community we are familiar with the seasons and stages that people go through in life and we are willing to help if we can in those seasons. As such we are willing to offer Baby dedications, Marriage Celebrants and those who can take funerals. Celebrants are friendly and are available to take Dedications and Marriages. There is normally a charge associated with weddings. Funerals are conducted with care and there is Christian input.
Please email us – firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office if you need any help with any of these services or would like more details.
