Riccarton Community Church logo Where we connect

Welcome to Riccarton Community Church

We are a vibrant contemporary church with an outward-looking approach. Our aim is to learn and share Biblical truth, to find strength and joy in our connections with each other, and to grow in our relationship with God. As individuals and as a church community we want to make a positive contribution to the world around us.

Since our establishment as a neighbourhood church in the late 1940’s we have been rolling our sleeves up and acting on our faith, making the teachings of the Bible relevant to our present day, and embracing the rich tapestry of our community, welcoming all ages, backgrounds and walks of life.

What we believe

Our Statement of Belief paints a picture of who we believe God is, what kind of relationship we can have with Him, and what to expect in the future. We put our trust in the Bible to help us paint this picture and guide us in how to engage with and respond to God in our lives.

Service Times

Join us on Sundays at 9am or 11am.

Come and join us at 9am or 11am every Sunday or you can connect at 11am every Sunday for the livestream of the service via the Riccarton Community Church Facebook page or YouTube channel - as we gather to worship God, encourage one another and connect with what God is doing in our city and world.

Our Senior Leaders

We are a church that wants to make a positive difference in our community. We strive to focus on the needs of people around us in our suburb of Riccarton, our beautiful city of Christchurch, and beyond to the world we live in.

It is our hope that everyone who plants themselves at Riccarton Community Church will authentically grow in their connection with God and others.

We would be so pleased to welcome you on
a Sunday morning, at the Next Steps 
Station, or at one of our Newcomer’s 
lunches. We look forward to meeting you!

Blessings, Phil & Cath Stedman
