Gatherings @ The Rock

Church is a community of faith—a spiritual family, not a Sunday service. But our services, programmes and events are environments that enable us to encourage one another in faith and to equip each other to follow God and His plans for us. You’ll find what’s coming up at The Rock here on this page.

Be sure to check back regularly and join with us to see God’s Kingdom grow in us and in the world. If you would like more information about our services or programmes than is provided here, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Discipleship Leaders Training

Wednesday 7 July, 7:00pm
The Rock Cafe

For current discipleship leaders.

Details here
Discipleship Leaders Training nights are for our current discipleship leaders only. These nights are designed to build and equip our discipleship leaders.

These training nights have 2 aspects to them. The first is in relation to the spiritual growth of the leader. We can't lead others to where we haven't been or have no reference point for.

The second aspect of these training nights is to equip the leaders in practical aspects of leading the group. It is imperative we know how to ask good questions and facilitate the conversation.

On Saturday 28 July we will come together for a night of Prayer, Praise & Prophecy.

Come expectant and hungry and let's join as one to honour our groom.

Rock Family Potluck Lunch

Sunday 29 July, 12:00pm
The Rock Cafe

Join us for Lunch after the service.

Details here
Bring a plate to share with the rest of our Rock family. Due to limited ability to reheat/cook food, dishes that can be served cold are preferred. If you would like to bring something hot in a slow cooker please contact us so we don't end up with more food than plugs.

Remember to name your dishes and utensils and collect them before you leave. Please drop your dishes off in the cafe before the service. We do have a number of people within the family that are gluten free (and a few dairy free also) so if you are able to make a dish that is allergen conscious it would be a real blessing to them.

For further info please contact us: info@therock.org.nz
