LIFE South

3 Lakewood Ct, Manukau, Auckland

Join Us This Sunday

Situated alongside Rainbow's End, LIFE South is an open door available to anyone who desires to discover a real relationship with a loving and grace-filled God.

The overwhelming feedback received on a regular basis is that people find "family" and a sense of "home" when they walk through the doors at LIFE South. The heart and spirit of those words are truly encapsulated and expressed by groups of people who give their lives to creating a love-fuelled environment.

"Church is a community of likeminded people - not perfect people. And for me to be strengthened, encouraged and to run the race set before me, it has been crucial to have the support of a community around me."
Miti, LIFE South

What to Expect

On any given Sunday, you will first see our friendly car-parking team directing you to available parking spaces on-site.

Our welcome team will greet you at the door and assist you to find the kids' check-in if you would like to register your child for our pre-school or primary in-service programme, Adventure Kids. For those with babies under the age of 1, a hosted parents' room is also available with areas for feeding and kitchen facilities.

Our 70 min services include time for contemporary praise and worship as well as a relevant message.
