Welcome and thank you for visiting Emmett Street Community Church. We trust that this website will prove to be helpful to you and be able to answer any questions you may have about ESCC. Please feel free to read more about our church on this site or to pay us a visit one Sunday. You will be most welcome.
Role of the Church
We see the role of the Church as being the means by which God communicates His love to the world that He created. Jesus said, ‘For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.’ (John 3.17). We see God as being concerned about every person regardless of their background and as a Church we seek to represent His priorities and purposes in this world.
A Very Brief History
ESCC's roots are based in the Methodist Church of New Zealand. In early 1999 the Church was established as Parklands Christian Centre on the site where Parklands Library is now situated. However, in 2001 the Church relocated to 106 Emmett Street in Shirley as ESCC and met there up until 2011 when the February earthquake struck. In July 2015 ESCC returned to Emmett Street.

What's the best future you could imagine?
There are few emotions more powerful than hope. But these days, hope often feels hard to come by. Where can we find a hope that won’t disappoint us?
Hope Explored looks at the life, death and resurrection of Jesus in Luke’s Gospel, this three-session series shows that Christianity is about real hope: a joyful expectation for the future, based on true events in the past, which changes everything about my present.
The course runs for 3 weeks and starts on the 16th of April.
