Church in Progress aims to create spaces to connect with God and with one another.

All Church in Progress events are open to all – no matter how you identify or what your age or status might be. ALL are welcome and affirmed. Keep scrolling down the end of the page for details of events you can come along to.

Church in Progress tries not to do things just because they have always been done that way. It’s a group of people that are finding ways to connect faith with everyday life. It’s a place in which noisy kids are celebrated and there’s a welcome for everyone, no matter what their belief system or status is.

Are you someone that …

… wants to find out what a being a follower of Jesus looks like

… want to be part of a faith community but not sure about ‘church’

… is searching for a church that is fully GLBTQI affirming

… you have questions about God or spiritual stuff and want to discuss them

… looking for a community of people that invest time in social justice issues

Well, Church in Progress could be just the thing you are looking for!

If you like to chat to Rev Emily before you come along to an event please get in touch – by email or via the facebook page.

Church in Progress does not own a building so it’s recommended that you check the facebook events page just in case there are last minute changes to the venue. You can RSVP there too and join in the ongoing conversations. PLUS, there are last minute events that pop up!

Monthly Gatherings.png

The Church in Progress Monthly Gatherings are a wonderful time to come together for a creative time of sharing, prayer, conversation and food! Each gathering starts at 4pm. However, people are always welcome to arrive from 3.15pm to help set up. It’s a great way to get to know one another better. There is a chance to share food too, around 5pm. If you are able, please bring something to share.

Every Church in Progress event has an open invitation. ALL are welcome, no matter how you identify. We are blessed by The Good Seeds Trust who let us use their building at 18a Mervan Street, Mangere East. Our wonderful hosts are working on making the building totally accessible but it’s a work in progress. If you have questions about accessing the building please talk to us and we can work something out.

These services are a wonderful way to connect with others throughout Aotearoa and the world in prayer. There are not any schedule in for this year … YET. Watch this space and connect with Church in Progress on facebook.

Pray and Plan – these happen at different times throughout the year. It’s a virtual hangout using zoom so you don’t have to face the traffic or get out of your pjs! It’s a time of sharing, praying and thinking about the next monthly worship gathering. Church in Progress has found the best events are the ones we plan together. Check out to see when they are and to get the link to join the meeting.
