Welcome to KAC.
We are a church with multiple and varied worship gatherings, many home-cell groups and effective ministries to people of all ages with specialised ministries to children, teens and young adults. We seek to be a visible and effective presence in the Karori community. Being church is about gathering together and about living the life of Jesus in every context.

We place our emphasis on helping people to come to faith in Jesus Christ, grow in that faith and understand what it means for us to be missional (sent) in the context of the communities of which we are part. We seek to be outwardly focused, Word based and Spirit directed.
