Jack and Sari Lamborn together with Kent and Pania Thompson head up the church's senior pastoral role, with a great team of pastoral elders and a leadership team coming up behind them. Our leadership team exists to ensure the smooth running of the church on a Sunday and its outpouring into both the church and wider Havelock North community beyond that. While our leadership readily make themselves available to support our church family on their spiritual journey and walk with God, every person and role in the church to us is of equal importance.


-The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. 1 Cor. 12:12

Caring for you




Getting connected and supporting each other

Connect groups have one simple purpose: to bring people together. God created us to live in community with others, and it is  only then that we can experience the full life He intends for us. We therefore see ideal church involvement as 'Church +1': that is, the Sunday service plus . one other connect group meeting sometime during the week. 

No matter your age, interest, or situation- we have a connect group that's just right for you!

Peak Youth

Our next generation of leaders and world changers

Our 13-18 year olds meet fortnightly at church on Friday nights from 7pm for fellowship, friendship, discussion and activities. 

Children's Programs

Our next generation of leaders and world changers

We run our children's programs every Sunday during the service. With three different programs run simultaneously in their own spaces, designed to suit the different age groups and their needs, our goal is to teach our children about Jesus and the gospel, and lay solid foundations for them and their futures.

King's Kids is designed for ages 1-5. This includes healthy snacks as well as stories, music and crafts structured around a Bible story, as well as free play in the well-equipped Royal's Childcare facilities. 

Vision Kids is for school years 1-5. Crafts, memory verses, and games help kids to engage with Bible verses and stories. 

VIPS is for school years  6-8. It includes pre-planned, engaging discussion, as well as Bible and  memory verses. 



We have a vision to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community- to show love in action. That means serving and caring . for those around us; to meet needs as they arise and to meet people where they are. Some of our outreach programs include:

- Prison ministry

- Lipscombe  Sunday Sausage Sizzle

-Te Hahi (pastoral care and supportfor police

call outs)

- BellyFull (meals for people in need)

- Pastoral counselling

- Christmas baskets and presents
