You may have noticed that as humans not all of us are the same… In The Village we have a few different expressions of worship so that different people can worship God in a way that might suit them. Feel free to join us at any of the following.

The Gathering

Meets at 8:30am each Sunday through the school terms @ The Village Bryndwr – 365a Ilam Road. It begins with breakfast (supplied!) and follows with interactive stories, activities for children, and conversations among the adults. It is geared to young families and enjoys the support of a stunning group of people. Enquiries welcome, email Martin –

Sundays at 10am

Meets weekly throughout the year @ St Andrew’s College Chapel, 347 Papanui Road, Christchurch. These services are lively, relevant, uplifting, thoughtful and always concluded with a great cuppa and friendly conversations. Enquiries welcome, email Tracey – phone 352 6197


Tuesdays 5:30pm @ The Village Papanui – Corner Papanui Road & Frank St. This is contemplative worship in the middle of the week. Services are guided reflection and meditation lasting for around 20min and aimed at anyone wishing to push pause for a moment in the hustle of the week. Enquires welcome, email Dan – or phone 352 6197

Mid Week Service

Wednesdays at 11am @ The Village Papanui – Corner Papanui Road & Frank St. We begin with a cuppa and move into a smaller, relaxed, more conversational style of service. Enquiries welcome, email Tracey – or phone 352 6197

Evening Circle

Held on the 4th Sunday of each month at 5:30pm. A smaller group focused on reflection and sharing with its roots in the Celtic tradition. Enquiries welcome, email Tracey – or phone 352 6197
