Growing together in Christ

At Heretaunga Christian Centre we value people being part of a small group. All the different groups that meet together have one thing in common – Transformational Relationships - where we pray, study the bible, praise God, hang out and do life together.


Life Groups

These small groups are designed to develop our relationship and daily walk with Christ.  They include Bible study, prayer, relationship building, support and encouragement.  We would love for everyone at HCC to be involved in a small group (TR), where an environment that nurtures spiritual growth exists, and pursuing the image of Christ in one another is highly valued. For more information please contact Steve Shirley (Equipping Pastor) at steve@heretaunga.com.

Young Adults Group

Making the transition from Youth Group to Life Group, the Young Adults is for school leavers from age 17 – 21. We meet Thursdays at 7:30pm for Bible study, a hot drink, prayer, some dessert, some singing, the odd evening meal and a bit of trash talk.
