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.

All of the buildings belonging to the church were damaged to some extent in the earthquakes of 2010/2011. Repairs to the Chester St East houses and the 'lounge' have enabled us to continue ministry and worship on our site. New facilities are proposed, to host our church and local community in the foreseeable future, and as a legacy for those yet to come.
