WHAT TO EXPECT.
We would love to invite you to visit Harmony Church if you are in the Christchurch City area.
At Harmony we’re all about Jesus—and the only way to get to know Jesus is to understand what the Bible says about him and to encounter him in prayer and worship.
You can experience live worship, powerful teaching and real community every Sunday at 10am & 6pm.
Free carparking is available onsite and also on the surrounding streets.
Harmony Church is a 15 minute walk from Cathedral Square and a 5 minute walk from Christchurch Hospital. Many public bus services stop nearby.
We would love the opportunity to meet you. Our pastors always make themselves available after every service down by the stage and in the foyer. If you have any questions during your visit, ask one of our ushers, greeters or visit the information desk at the main entrance.
More than entertainment, our music is part of the way in which we prepare our hearts and minds to hear the Word and to respond to that word. We love to spend time soaking in worship. Also, as part of our worship, we take communion together most weeks. All in all, the atmosphere is casual, passionate, and open to all.
Ear plugs are available at the back should you need them.
The Bible tells us that faith comes by hearing the Word of God, the Bible. So we want to teach as much of it as we can. Our sermons usually run between 30 and 40 minutes in length. All our teaching is free to access online, so you can check it out anytime.
When you walk in the door, you’ll see signage directing you to the Kids check-in area. At the check-in area, you’ll be greeted by a volunteer or staff member who will help you register your children in our system. You’ll be handed a sticker with your name, your child’s name and what class your child is in. Your child will wear a corresponding sticker that matches the details on your sticker.
Security is important to us, so we have volunteer security teams at all Harmony services and events, and when you drop off and pick up your child, we’ll make sure the numbers on your stickers match before admitting or dismissing them to or from kids church. After dropping your child to kids church, you can grab a coffee or tea from the cafe and head into worship. Your child will do some activities initially, then gather with all our kids to sing songs to Jesus, and then work through the activities for the morning. After the service is done we encourage parents to pick up their kids and enjoy time together meeting with other parents and children.
Should you ever have questions, any member of our staff or our volunteers will be happy to help you! Also, if you have questions about Harmony Kids before attending a service, you can always contact any of the staff or pastors to find answers to those questions.
NEW COMERS LUNCH. If you’re new to Harmony and are considering making this your church home, we would like to invite you to our next New Comers Lunch. You will be able to meet some of the leaders, including Gideon & Catherine Hoekendijk. Happening after morning church each month, register your interest by contacting us.
