About GCI New Zealand

Grace Communion International (GCI), previously known as Worldwide Church of God (WCG), is an evangelical denomination with its world headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. In the USA, GCI is a participating member of the National Evangelical Association (NEA). In New Zealand we are members of the NZ Christian Network, which is part of the World Evangelical Alliance. The church has been active in this country since the late 1950's, arriving here from Australia and establishing its first congregation in 1967. Although GCI is one of the smaller denominational groups in New Zealand, its members nevertheless strive to be caring neighbours and helpful members of the community, involving themselves in the work of community organisations and special needs groups. Learn about how you to can support this work.

One of our goals is to equip our members to live fulfilling Christian lives. We do that not only in a congregational context but through Refresher weekends, workshops and Annual Celebrations. Contact us to learn more.

Annual Celebrations

Ever since GCI, formerly WCG, has had a presence in New Zealand, annual retreats or celebrations, where members and congregations meet together, have been held at locations throughout New Zealand. Most recently these have been in Ngongotaha and at Waikanae. See more about our annual Retreat by clicking the link below.
