Worship commences at 10am on each Sunday.
The service has a relaxed style with a variety of people (of all ages) leading.
We also have a specific time for children and youth to learn about faith in Sunday School and Junior Church.
Communion also termed (the Eucharist and Holy Communion in other Christian traditions) is celebrated on the first, third and fifth Sunday of the month. We encourage and invite all who attend to share in the sacrament (an open table).
At specified times a ‘healing service’ is offered in the evening (7pm). The service has a quiet and meditative environment where prayer is offered for healing. Worship continues in the form of singing and readings.
The youth of the Church attend monthly ‘Youth Services’ (the last Sunday of the month) held in the evening at various Churches. We support the services at our ecumenical partner Churches of the Methodist, Presbyterian and Christian Churches (Churches of Christ).
Following the service a number of people meet at Eastgate and talk over lunch. Anyone is welcome to attend.
Eastern Churches Together
The Eastern Churches Together network comprises six congregations in east Christchurch (and one out of the area). The Churches involved are: St Georges/Iona, New Brighton Union, Wainoni Methodist, Port Hills Unting Parish, St Andrews at Rangi Ruru and Linwood Avenue Union Church. ECT intentionally share resources; hold services at one venue on the fifth Sunday of the month; the ordained ministers meet regularly and share a pastoral responsibility for a parish or two, when one is on holiday; support each other; have a collaborative approach to ministry and mission and know the church can express its faith and ministry in greater depth when the body of Christ is working together rather than in separation.
Pastoral /Visitors support group:
Pastoral Carers Support group at Iona House will reconvene next year.
Venue: Iona House, 304 Breezes Road, Aranui.
All Pastoral Carers/Visitors are welcome.
The next Men’s Breakfast is on Saturday September 15th at 8:30am in the kitchen lounge area. Koha appreciated.
Whats Messy Church? Messy Church is a service with a difference, as there are craft acitivies, games (at times), a God spot and a light meal at the end. It’s a service for families and we’re all part of God’s family!
