GCI Auckland has a weekly worship service each Saturday at 2pm until 3.30pm. We meet at the Mt Eden Senior Citizens' Hall on the corner of Dominion and Brixton Roads. Behind the building, which is also the Mt Eden Memorial Hall, there is a parking area and, for those relying on public transport, the Auckland buses stop outside the door.
After our service we enjoy afternoon tea. Once a month our service is online only - on the first Sunday of each month.
As a group made up of young and old, the Hamilton congregation meets monthly to worship God together. Believing in the inspired words of the Bible and seeing ourselves as a work in progress in God's hands, we aim to share His good news of grace and hope to everyone around us.
We warmly welcome you to visit us and stay for a chat over a cuppa at the end of each service.
From time to time the venue changes, so if you haven't visited us before, it would pay to confirm with the contact listed below.

Set in the beautiful Bay of Plenty, Rotorua is the premiere cultural centre for New Zealand and has been the site for the GCI annual festival in many past years.
Grace Communion International was established in Rotorua in 1981. Built initially on a magazine and booklet media base, the church has always sought to provide clear biblical underpinnings to our beliefs. In earlier years our denomination tended toward legalism but God in His mercy led us out of this and today we embrace His grace with joy.
Please contact our pastor in Rotorua, Peter Lindop (027 284 0036), for details of meetings. Visitors are most welcome at any time to share a time of worship together with us. While we are keen in our commitment as Christians we are a relaxed, friendly group. And while we would love visitors to return again, we leave that decision entirely in your hands and will not pressure you in any way.

Southern Light Community Church, Invercargill
We are a small but active congregation of committed Christian folk endeavouring to make our community a better place. This challenge, which lies at the heart of our vision for the church in Invercargill is accomplished by offering weekly worship services and discipleship, and helping in the community to assist people where needs have been identified.
The church has been meeting in Invercargill since 1975. Despite our small numbers, we have been involved in the Alpha programme and participated in the Impact World Tour when it visited Invercargill in 2003. In 2007 the Southern Light Community Centre was established and was for 7 years our chief means of reaching into the community. With closure of the Centre, services are now held in a variety of venues. Members here are also heavily involved in supporting the GCI congregation in Rory, Vanuatu, helping to construct water tanks and eco-friendly latrine facilities in the village, a meeting hall and small accommodation block for visiting ministers.
