Wainui Beach Church Gisborne - Bongo WorshipNau mai, welcome and thanks for checking us out.  We meet at 9am and 10.30am on Sunday morning each week at the Wainui Beach School Hall.

During the 9am service we run a creche and a program for primary and intermediate school-age kids, and a fortnightly discipleship series for the Yr 9s-13.  WBC Youth and Yr 789s meet regularly Friday nights during term time.

Child and Youth Programmes - Wainui Beach Church, Gisborne


Growth Groups are a great place to unpack some of the teaching from the Sunday service, and also a great opportunity to ask questions, pray for each other, and enjoy some good kai together, as well as strengthening old friendships and making new ones.  Groups operate weekly during terms 1, 2 and 3 of the school year.  Topical teaching groups and short courses operate during Term 4.
