St Andrew's Geraldine
Thank you for visiting us.
We are an all-age family church with a range of ministries and services into our local community. We have a passion above all else to serve God’s purposes here in South Canterbury and we would love you to come and check us out this Sunday.
Our Mission Statement
"Glorifying and enjoying God together.
Growing God's Kingdom through Jesus transforming lives.
Going to all people because they are special to God."
"Glorify ... Grow ... Go."
We want to achieve our vision by calling people to faith, supporting them to change, and coaching and commissioning them to serve in the areas they feel called to.
Walking with Christ is a journey and we acknowledge that nobody is perfect, but we seek to take this journey together. This year we look forward to growing in love towards our creator, towards each other and towards our community here in South Canterbury which we are privileged to be part of.
At St Andrew’s we have a love for God’s Word and teaching from God's Word forms a key part of our services.
Our scriptural text for 2019 is John 13:34-35
“So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”
Whether you are new to the Geraldine community or have lived here for some time, we welcome you to join us in our fellowship on Sundays, through various ministries, and home groups throughout each week. If you have questions or unsure about what church might be like, contact our leadership team members or just turn up to “spectate”. We'd love to see you.
The Church office located in the Church Hall can be accessed by either the Church car park or entrance way on Wilson Street, Tuesday to Friday, 9am-midday.
Please feel free to visit us and browse around our website.
