CHRIST SANCTUARY PALMERSTON NORTH CHURCH
What to expect
Where to find us
We meet every Sunday at 50 Queen Street, in the black building opposite the Ucol Carpark. There is plenty of free parking.
We start at about 10am, and usually finish around 11:30. Following the service you're welcome to stay for tea or coffee and fellowship.
Who is welcome?
No matter who you are, where you're from, what you think about God, Jesus, Church and the Bible, you're welcome to visit Christ Sanctuary.
What can I expect?
Our worship service combines a number of parts. We begin with a reading of the Bible as a call to worship. We then worship God through song, prayer, and the reading and preaching of the Bible. Each week we take up an offering, and often use this time to pray for other churches in our city and nation.
Each week we take the Lord's Supper, or Communion together, and this is open to any professing believer in Jesus. Our time of worship ends with a benediction from the Bible, which declares that God's grace rests on all who are in Christ Jesus.
What's the music like?
We use a variety of contemporary songs and hymns, and a variety of instruments. We aim to make sure all of our songs lyrics are shaped by Scripture.
And the preaching?
We make a habit of preaching mostly through books of the Bible, with each sermon pointing us towards Jesus Christ and his Gospel.
What about the kids?
Most weeks during the school term, we run Children's Church or what is commonly known as Sunday School. This goes for the duration of the sermon. For more information see our Ministries page.
We recognise that children do make some noise, and so we encourage patience and charity towards parents and children, as we are a church not a library! We have a creche for parents to take their little ones who aren't able to sit through the whole service. There are activity and colouring packs at the back of the church especially for those weeks when we don't run Children's Church.
