"I am the Light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness, but will have the Light of life"
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
A Very Brief History
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.
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.
LONG STORY SHORT
'Long Story Short' is a great Kiwi based video series that explores the story of the Bible and seeks to address some of the major questions that naturally arise about Christianity - Who is God? Who am I?
What's gone wrong with the world? Why are there so many different religions? Who is Jesus and why is He important?
The current series has now finished, however
we will be running another series early next year.
