Get involved

Church doesn’t just happen on Sunday… we have lots of other groups, events and ministries happening every day, and we’d love you to get involved. So have a look around and see what interests you.

Small groups

Small groups

One of the key things about being part of a church is finding your fit with the right small group. At BCC we believe it’s really important to help you grow spiritually and socially in the church. We have a whole variety of different study and support groups to join – and new ones are always being created too.

So, please get in touch to find out more about any of our small groups.

Sunday services

At BCC we meet weekly on Sundays at the Rawene Centre for a Communion Service and a Family Service.

Communion Service – 9am
A quieter, unplugged style service where people have the opportunity to reflect, worship and share personally. Meets in the Kendall Bay Lounge at Rawene.

Family Service – 10am
A relaxed, hour-long service that includes modern worship music, a talk and the opportunity to take communion. We meet after for morning tea and a chat.

So why not come along and see what Birkenhead Community Church is all about this Sunday.

Kids

Every Sunday morning in the school term, during our Family Service, our action-packed Kidzchurch is on for primary school aged kids. Along with games and lots of singing, kids enjoy a lesson from their enthusiastic teachers about stories from the bible.

If you’d like to know more about bringing your children to Kidzchurch, then email us and we’ll give you a call.

Creche
While our Family Service is on we have a crèche running for kids under 5. Two people look after the kids in our fun crèche, which is full of fantastic toys, books and activities.

Mainly Music
Every Tuesday morning during the school term the Rawene Centre is overrun with little feet dancing and voices singing. Our mainly music group welcomes 25 community mums, dads, grandparents and their kids for a 30-minute singing and dancing session. A beautiful morning tea is always provided .

Please contact Arlene, our coordinator, prior to coming as spaces are limited and our sessions are usually full each week. We’d love to have you!

Meals
 – We want to take care of our church family and one way we do that is by providing meals for people when in need. Whether they’ve just had a new baby or they’ve lost a close family member, a roster is organised and homemade meals can be delivered as needed.

Missions Team
 – A group meet regularly to discuss community, national and overseas missions and how we can be involved here at BCC. We also support some individuals on mission trips.
