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.
We have a mix of online and ‘in-person’ events. Occasionally, events get cancelled. Please check our facebook page for updates.
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!

Short & Simple Sunday Service

Rev Emily usually leads the prayers and this is her favourite part of the week! All Church in Progress events are open to ALL. No matter how you identify, you will be welcomed, affirmed and celebrated. If you have experience hurt or rejection in other church spaces – you’ll find a warm welcome here 🙂 1 John 4:18 There’s no fear in love …

As we care for one another in this new COVID season, we are finding new ways to keep healthy and safe, please stay home if you are not feeling well. To help stop the spread of the virus we only meet in person at Alert Level 1. We are also investing time and resources into new hygiene practices.
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.
