YOU ARE WELCOME HERE

What’s important?  Who are we?  What will we do to live authentic to our hearts, our convictions?  What matters?

Yes, we are in an era where change is moving at an unsustainable pace, where everything is questioned; where we’re more connected than ever, but never more lonely and authentic unconditional love is scarce; where we confess a spiritual thirst, but are unsure about God and what it implies for our lives.  Ours is a church  where skeptics and saints, sinners and the sarcastic, the well to do and the hungry, where those with clear belonging and those wandering are all accepted and belong.

As for us, we’re not perfect. We have scars and shortcomings. Yet, we are a people, a place of hope, a future, and transformation from a life as sold to us in the media to one that is unconditional, gritty and honest, a journey shared together, with an unshakable purpose and reason to get out of bed in the morning. Come, explore, question, wrestle, grow in a trusted environment where you’ll be accepted, can unwrap it all and just be. Come gain the confidence to be vulnerable and celebrated right where you are, and invited to go places you’ve never dreamt.

As for you, you may have great faith, or wonder if there is a God at all, or you’re very wary from some experience you don’t have words for.  You may be trying to keep it together, or simply sense God is wooing you, calling you, a longing for connecting to the deep yearning within.  It doesn’t matter – at all.  You’re welcome here.  We’ll be a safe place to unpack it, wrestle it, taste and see and we will walk with you through it.  You may be ready to jump in, or just watch.  Fine…  Come, everyone is welcome at the table.

St Christopher’s is an Anglican Church, a faith community of people who want all of who we are, all we have to offer, all we are created for to be realised and count. We don’t judge you, but encourage; don’t condemn, but coach; don’t abandon, but hang in through the best and the worst.  We are a proud part of the Anglican Diocese of Christchurch and the global Anglican Communion.

We’re not trying to be the coolest, nor the most contemporary, nor the most traditional.  We’re actually complex, but one united people.  Our mantra is “we have space at the table for you.”  So, you’re invited to come, belong  – even before you believe, before you enter into this life of following Jesus…  come explore what that even means…  Come explore who He is, really.  We’re confident you’ll be surprised!

You are welcome here.  There is always room at the table for you.  No matter who you are.
