Our regular community worship service is held every Sunday morning at 10:00, followed by morning tea in the foyer, and an open invitation to continue fellowshipping over lunch at Eastgate Mall. 

The service has a relaxed style with a variety of people (of all ages) leading.

We also have a Sunday School and a Creche for children and youth.

Communion also termed (the Eucharist and Holy Communion in other Christian traditions) is celebrated on the first, third and fifth Sunday of the month. We encourage and invite all who attend to share in the sacrament (an open table).

We also host a small healing service in the evenings of 5th Sundays at 19:00 in the Tilford Lounge.

Eastern Churches Together

The Eastern Churches Together network comprises 4 congregations in east Christchurch. The Churches involved are:

  • St Georges/Iona
  • New Brighton Union,
  • Port Hills Uniting Parish,
  • and Linwood Avenue Union Church.

ECT intentionally share resources; hold services at one venue on the fifth Sunday of the month; the ordained ministers meet regularly and share a pastoral responsibility for a parish or two when one is on holiday; support each other;  have a collaborative approach to ministry and mission and know the church can express its faith and ministry in greater depth when the body of Christ is working together rather than in separation.
