ABOUT WAINUI BEACH CHURCH

 

Wainui Beach Church Gisborne

Who we are

We are a community of people who want to, and do see, God working in our lives and the lives of those around us. We are part of the network of the LinkNZ network of churches who value authentic relationship, Spirit life, and mission together.  We are figuring out how to be a multi-generational, multi-cutlural church in Aotearoa, New Zealand.  We meet at the school hall in the beach side community of Wainui.

History

Out of a desire to see a Christian witness maintained at Wainui Beach, Gisborne, a church was planted in early 1996. Due to increasing numbers the church relocated to Wainui Beach School Hall in the year 2000 where we presently meet. In 2005 became part of the Link NZ network. Senior Leaders Carl and Sharlene Pilkinton were appointed in January 2011. They moved here from Porirua with their three children.
