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.
Due to the spread of COVID-19 Church in Progress is ramping up it’s online presence. Sadly, many of the face-to-face gatherings you see below may have to be cancelled. The best way to check if they are going ahead is to look at the facebook page.
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!
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!
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 for our monthly gatherings. 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.

Short & Simple Sunday Service
Church in Progress is committed to providing spaces in which people can reconnect with God and with one another. These services are a wonderful way to connect with others throughout Aotearoa and the world in prayer.
EVERY Sunday 8pm (NZ time) March and April, Church in Progress will be hosting an online service. It will be simple and short – a chance to share prayers and to prayerfully ponder a section of scripture. This is not a ‘live stream’ of a physical service. This is an online event in which you can participate.
