Oxford Terrace Baptist Church
in Christchurch's central city

If you're looking for a church home or visiting the city, we'd love to see you.

On Sundays there are three church services. Morning tea is served at 10.30am.
CLASSICAL SERVICE – An hour long service of prayer, Bible reading, hymns and songs, and a sermon. We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of every month.
Morning tea – a great opportunity to meet and greet new and familiar friends.
CONTEMPORARY SERVICE – We sing more recent songs led by a band, there is a sermon, prayer, and readings. During this time there are groups for preschoolers to intermediate age children.
INTERNATIONAL SERVICE 国际堂主日崇拜 – We are passionate about worshiping God with singing songs, prayer, and sermon by people who are from Asia and other places. English and Mandarin will be the main languages to deliver the sermon.

God's heart for mission

We have been inspired by stories of mission endeavours through the years at Oxford Terrace, and alongside local engagement, have recently had groups venture overseas to visit projects and learn about opportunities to serve God in other countries. We can't wait for the next trip!
