Cornerstone City

10 am Sundays
Riccarton High School, 31 Vicki Street

Our vision is to see lives transformed as people come to know Jesus. Sundays are when we gather and unpack the truth, beauty, and contemporary significance of Jesus. We value Christ-centred, Bible-based preaching intended to deepen the faith of the Christian, but also to be accessible to any who are exploring.

Cornerstone City is a diverse and growing community of people from all backgrounds who want to deepen their relationship with God, become more like Jesus, and share life alongside one another. Having started with a core group of 50 people from Campus Church in 2012, we’ve grown to around 200 people gathering weekly. We're a community of many different nationalities, a wide range of ages, and many families with young kids.

We gather at Riccarton High School each Sunday morning to sing, pray, hear God’s word, and encourage each other in our faith in Jesus.

Bringing the kids?

Children are an important part of our church family at Cornerstone; there's a dedicated space for kids of all ages at Cornerstone City, plus a youth group for teens. We long to see our children and youth become disciples of Jesus for their whole lives and tailor our programmes to each age group. 

Parents' room

We love our little ones and want to make it as easy as possible for young parents to come along to church on Sundays. A parent's room with a live stream of the service is available for those with young kids who aren't yet in Kids' Space.

Newish

When you arrive at Cornerstone City, Newish is the best place to start. It’s a five-week course designed to welcome you to our church. We look at five areas important for a healthy church and see what the Bible says about belonging to God’s people. It’s perfect if you have already decided to join us regularly, but equally valuable if you’re still unsure and have questions. From there, we can help you with the next step in church life. 

Growth Groups

Our Growth Groups are central to the way we walk alongside each other; we grow more like Christ, pray and care for one another, rooted in the Word of God.

Groups run during the school terms, with a range of times to suit your schedule.

Youth Group

Our junior and senior youth groups are for teens in school years 7–13. We long to see our young people hungry for the Word of God, engaging with the cultural challenges that confront them through the lens of the Bible, and growing in their desire for God, love for God’s people, and the lost.
