Our History

Riccarton Community Church is an independent, every-generation church.

A group of local people had a vision for starting a church in Riccarton, beginning in 1948 with a Sunday School in the Riccarton Town Hall. For over seventy years, Riccarton Community Church has maintained that focus on sharing the hope that Jesus brings in this community and further afield.

Our Vision

To see our city become a place of Christ’s transforming hope for the world.

To help see our vision come about, we focus on four building blocks:

  • Older people at a service
  • Young girl in conversation with young woman

We seek to be a genuine, relevant Christian community where every person can connect with God, can connect with other followers of Jesus, and connect with people who are searching for freedom and purpose.
