About Us

We have been in the Hillcrest community for over 40yrs with many of those at the beginning still worshipping Jesus here. Three churches of different denominations chose to come together Anglican, Methodist, Presbyterian. A group of Christians getting together to form a blended family. Today people are still together doing the Jesus thing of loving our neighbours.

It’s a place of welcoming for everyone from babies to grandparents. If you want to know more get in touch here, office@stfrancis.co.nz

It is our hope that you would find a place to belong here. No matter your background, culture or stage of life – you are welcome to be part of the st francis family as we value being a multicultural and intergenerational church.

We believe that for people to thrive in their faith, they need connection with others in community. Some of the key ways to ensure this happens is to serve alongside others, join a small group aimed at teaching and support for personal growth.

We have a strong desire not just to build the local church but to reach out beyond the four walls and bring change and blessing to our community, city, nation and the nations. We would love for you to be part of that, probably the best way is to show up on a Sunday and meet some of us properly. Then there are countless ways to join in the fun as we shoot at being the sort of family in which all sorts can belong.

Our Focus

Church: We see church as a place to call home. An open door, that extends to everyone who desires to discover and develop a real relationship with a loving and grace filled God. An environment of life shaping challenge and heart connected community. We truly believe that Life won’t be all it can be without the unique experiences, gifts and a personality God has given you.

Our Vision

Growing communities of people saved, healed, set free, discipled, equipped, empowered and serving
