Christ Sanctuary has a number of ministries which serve to help our community know Jesus Christ and make him known.

Home Groups

During the week, some of our people meet in homes around Palmy and Feilding. These follow a simple format of bible study, discussion, prayer and supper. These groups provide a helpful platform to grow in Christian maturity, and in relationship and support with other believers.

Children's Sunday School

On Sunday morning, during the sermon time at CS Palmerston North, we run Children’s Sunday School. This is aimed for children from around age 4 up to 11. It runs most weeks during the school term in the room next to the main auditorium.


We take a break during the school holidays and holiday weekends. Mission Statement: The purpose of Children's Church is to provide a safe environment with age-appropriate Biblical teaching where the children of Christ Sanctuary can come to know Jesus.


Presently, we are using the Gospel Project curriculum from Lifeway. The time is facilitated by teachers who are members of Christ Sanctuary, and are aided by another leader. As part of our commitment to provide a safe environment for children at CS, all teachers are police vetted.

Serving Food
Mercy Fund

In late 2022 our members agreed to set aside 10% of giving to intentionally support our Mercy Fund. The purpose of the fund could be summed up this way: “To love God and love neighbour by providing care with the goal to alleviate suffering.”


Biblical basis for such a ministry comes from places such as:
The Parable of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10:25-37, and verses like,
“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” - Galatians 6:9-10


“If anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.” - 1 John 3:17-18


The Mercy Fund is primarily overseen by the Deacons team, supporting those within the church, some outside the church, as well as community organisations which are committed to the same aims. 

Every fortnight we run a youth group Bible study, split into boys and girls groups. The youth gather monthly for a combined event. Youth is lots of fun, and our leaders are very committed to mentoring youth in the basics of the Christian life.
