We believe in a God who hears our prayers and is able to intervene on our behalf. If you need prayer, contact our team with your prayer request.
Discovering Jesus is just the beginning. If you are interested in Christianity or want to take your faith futher, get in touch with us. It would be our honour and privilege to encourage and equip you in your faith journey.
Alongside the Life Centre Trust initiatives, are Campus based initiatives which are a tool to mobilise the church to impact and change our generation with the reality of Jesus.
Many of our initiatives have been established in the wider community and happen on a regular basis so that you can get involved!

What are 'First Saturdays'?
First Saturdays consists of groups of people (large or small) using their skills and passion to serve our community. On the First Saturday of each month we will be empowering you to run Community initiatives/groups in and with the people in your Campus or Region. Anyone can get involved, friends, colleagues, family members - they don't have to attend LIFE. First Saturdays are a fantastic opportunity to get people engaged within our community and develop ideas into monthly projects/groups.
What can we do?
First Saturday Projects will vary each month – see the monthly calendar for some ideas. We believe that there are so many ways to reach our community and we want to empower you to do it! We also believe that we don't need to re-invent the wheel - so if you know an organisation who is already doing your idea really well, we can look at collaboration!
Here are some other ideas to spark your imagination....
· Installing smoke alarms in houses on a street & provide baking for them

LUNCH FOR THE HOMELESS
Weekly - Mt Eden Based Only
Our people volunteer at Urban Vineyard church every Wednesday at their weekly free community lunch. Their heart is to assist people who are marginalised, including those who are homeless and living in temporary boarding lodges within the Auckland City fringe. This is an opportunity to build relationships and come alongside a church who are working with individuals to address long- term needs such as improved housing, health and personal development.
If you have a heart for the marginalised, enjoy journeying alongside others and are free during the week then give us a call or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
