We are a church that loves God and are passionate about seeing people live a Jesus-filled life. Join us this Sunday, 10am at the NCMA!
Annesbrook Church is a church that loves God and are passionate about seeing people live a Jesus-filled life.
Annesbrook Church is actually over 70 years old! The name Annesbrook means ‘River of Grace’ and it was started by a group of people who saw Stoke being developed post WW2 and wanted there to be a church that people could attend. A group of families shifted out from Nelson City and the rest they say is history.
There is quite the team. Our Senior Leaders are Brent and Viv Liebezeit. They also lead the CCNZ (Christian Churches New Zealand) movement who are a group of like-minded Churches throughout New Zealand. We also have Graham and Rebekah Heslop who are the lead pastors. They help oversee all the locations around NZ. Along with our Location Pastors, there are teams of volunteers who are the real heroes, who week in and week out serve and help create the amazing place that Annesbrook is.
Annesbrook started in a suburb called Annesbrook. It is a small area just north of Stoke in Nelson. We recognised that what God is doing here and what we have to offer is unique and helpful. So, to make it accessible we have created a multi-location model, which means gatherings can happen in other areas with a simplified structure. Management and administration take place centrally at our Saxton location, freeing up pastors and team members to focus on people. We hope to start more and more campuses in the future.
The human tendency is to focus on the past and what has been. When we connect with God we can experience a fresh revelation of the future and a new vision through His Holy Spirit. Our vision is to take up the responsibility and opportunity to ‘lead people everywhere to this life we have found in Jesus’. That’s everywhere we can. All over NZ and even beyond.
Our missional values are ‘Reach, Grow, Empower’. Our cultural values are that we ‘Love God, Love People, Excellence, Fun, Expectant’.
