Welcome Bay Church On The Move

After six years of meeting in and functioning from various venues, such as Selwyn Ridge Primary School, Faith Bible College and ‘Base 130’ in Ohauiti Road, Welcome Bay Community Church are finally moving back into the centre of Welcome Bay. Looking for a suitable site has been a long faith journey, but all the work and fundraising has come to fruition.

A three acre property at 340 Welcome Bay Road (on the sweeping corner opposite Welcome Bay Primary School) has recently been purchased.

We are moving our Office in first and once Resource Consent requirements are completed, worship services & community ministries will commence.
November 2015 marks the 30th anniversary of Welcome Bay Community Church.
We look forward to serving God and celebrating our community from our new location soon.
