Life is better when you’re doing it together with others. That’s why we have new opportunities for you to experience church together in a range of groups.

Join us on Sundays as we meet together at a LIFE Local in your neighbourhood. Even though our Campuses will be closed to the public, LIFE Locals will be meeting as small group gatherings in homes and locations across Auckland to experience our Church Livestream services together. The livestream experiences include worship, opportunities for prayer and an encouraging message of hope for this season.

 Church is intended to be experienced together with others, and through LIFE Locals, you will be able to meet new people in your community and engage in meaningful connections with one another. Selected family-friendly Locals will also have space for the primary-aged children in your family to enjoy their own Adventure Kids Online experience.

Capacity is limited and registration is required.

In accordance with the COVID-19 Protection Framework, gathering restrictions will be limited based on vaccination status and venue capacity.

It is always our heart to ensure that everyone has access to church, however we understand that in this COVID season our experience of church may look different. Due to the government regulations set out for the Orange Light stage, we are able to operate with either fully vaccinated or undisclosed vaccination status locals.

LIFE Locals listed with ”vaccination certificate required” will be available to adults and children (aged 12 years and 3 months and over) with vaccination certificates. Children aged under 12 years and 3 months who are currently unable to be vaccinated are welcome to attend with their parents.
LIFE Locals listed with “undisclosed vaccination status” have a limit of 50 people or less (including children) and will not be required to present a vaccine pass.

For additional details regarding locals and how they operate please contact your Connection Pastor who would love to connect you with a host or fill out the form here.

LIFE is committed to provide a safe environment for everyone at our places of worship and gatherings. We continue to comply fully with all public health measures in response to the pandemic and encourage people to follow the guidelines as we meet together.
