Our Church Facilities

All you need to know about our facilities

New_building_Nov_2012.jpgWe continue to give God thanks and praise for our beautiful church auditorium and expanded facilities that were officially opened in November 2012. Our logo with its intermingling colours represents us being an intentionally multi-cultural church. The shape is like a wave – reflecting the fact Mairangi Bay is by the sea; and it is also like a dove, representing the Holy Spirit. Our wonderful facilities serve members, visitors and the city as a whole. Check out all we have to offer:

 

 

 

Auditorium
The main sanctuary seats about 220 people. We have comfortable padded chairs and the auditorium space is wheelchair accessible.

 

Cry room
If you are you a new parent and would like to be with your little one during the service, we understand! Our cry room is available to parents with little ones. A video and audio feed of the service are available. Temperature control is available. 

 

Lobby
The hub of conversation is without a doubt the lobby area. This open space is where you can enjoy a cup of coffee or tea while catching up with friends.

 

Parking
We have free tarred parking available with a disabled parking space and a wheelchair friendly ramp close to the main entrance.

 

Simultaneous Interpretation of our services (Chinese & Japanese)
Due to the fact that we have a large Asian representation, all services are simultaneously translated into Chinese and Japanese via our high-quality wireless headsets. You and other audience members are able to listen to a feed of our skilled interpreters who are listening to the English service being spoken (the floor language) and interpreting it into Chinese and Japanese. This has the advantage of not interrupting the flow of the service.
