Where do I park? Our Sunday morning service is at 9:45am. You can drive into the carpark from 2 Fremantle Place. Three churches are located on the site, we are in the middle just past the Kindergarten. You are welcome to park in the carparks at the front or the rear of the auditorium and Activity Centre.
Where do I go? Enter the church auditorium doors facing Ti Rakau Road. You'll find friendly people in the foyer who would love to meet you, answer your questions and guide you in the right direction.
What are the services like? Our church services usually begin with an item by the worship team and 1-2 congregational songs. There is a welcome, announcement & prayer time after which there is a further time of praise and worship, followed by a message or sermon. Personal prayer ministry is available at the end. The service usually finishes around 11:00 to 11:15am. After the service people often stay for a cup of tea or coffee and conversation with friends and new people.
What about children? We
are a multi-generational church. We like our children to be part of our
community time for the first 15-20 minutes before they head over to their
ministry areas - check out Under 5s & Kidzone & Pulse.
What do the teenagers do during the service? Our
youth form an essential part of our congregation. They participate in various
roles during the morning service. Find out more about Converge service for youth.
What should I wear? Pakuranga Baptist has a relaxed style with people usually choosing tidy casual clothing.
What should I bring with me? If you have a Bible, please feel free to bring it along. We do take up an offering to support the work of the church. As a guest do not feel you have to contribute.
How do I get to know people? One of the most useful things you can do is to talk with some of us so you can get to know more about the church. You can leave us contact information on the Sunday. Please join us after the service to chat as this is the best time to make connections.
What's a Baptist Church? We are a mainstream Christian church who are enthusiastic about our faith! We are part of the Baptist Churches of New Zealand, a group of over 200 churches who support and encourage each other.
