Wainui Beach Church Gisborne - Bongo WorshipNau mai, welcome and thanks for checking us out.  We meet at 9am and 10.30am on Sunday morning each week at the Wainui Beach School Hall.

During the 9am service we run a creche and a program for primary and intermediate school-age kids, and a fortnightly discipleship series for the Yr 7s-13.  WBC Youth and Yr 789s meet regularly Friday nights during term time.

Growth Groups are a great place to unpack some of the teaching from the Sunday service, and also a great opportunity to ask questions, pray for each other, and enjoy some good kai together, as well as strengthening old friendships and making new ones. We have a range of groups meeting at the moment. Come along or get in touch to find out more.
