Whatever your reason for being here, please feel free to join us and be part of a global mission.

 

A compassionate online global community

This church community aspires to be a place of safety.

Perhaps you’re angry and intimidated about the failures and abuses of religion and churches that you have attended. We acknowledge with shame that throughout history of the church and today religious  people have used religion as a tool of coercion or intimidation; vulnerable individuals have been sexually, emotionally, and spiritually abused in the name of religion. Paul said who has bewitched you O Galatians.

Many church folk fail at times to live out the grace and truth of our Lord Jesus. Yet we still long and try to be a part of a community of freedom and safety. 

We aspire to be a people who you can trust, give help and ask for help, celebrate each other’s talents and our own. We long for each person to enjoy the wholeness and freedom for which God developed your talents to do.

 

A online global community centred on Christ and his Cross

MyChurchnz.com finds its focus in loving and being loved by God.

Our ultimate confidence is in the person of Jesus Christ. We believe that he demonstrates God’s love for every human being and for the whole creation. As individuals and as a global community we seek ways to join in God’s demonstration of love for the world.

We welcome you to share in our community.
