Hello & Welcome

Believing in God’s Word and Spirit

Auckland Rainbow Community Church aspires to be a caring Christian community for all people, especially those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered or transsexual, their families and friends. Everyone who walks through the door is respected, welcomed and encouraged in their faith. It is a community of faith, offering pastoral support and social outreach to the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered community; a place where friendships can develop, partnerships are openly acknowledged and faith can be strengthened. We wish to be a community which people find to be a safe space to explore faith and sexuality.
We are a worshipping community holding regular services designed to be inclusive and welcoming to Christians of different traditions, with a Communion table which is open to all people of faith.
We are willing to experiment with styles and format of worship to reflect the diversity within our community. As a community of gay, lesbian, transsexual and transgendered people ACC will continue to build links with the wider church, working to have its voice heard, wanting to contribute its perceptions and perspectives on matters of faith, life, work and human sexuality in particular, which many churches continue to grapple with. Primarily we see ourselves as a community of faith, crossing denominational boundaries and faith borders, wanting to be an ecumenical expression of faith and witness.
