Ashburton Uniting Church has a membership of about 100 people, with a wide range of ages, stages, and backgrounds. We are guided by a mission statement which says:

 Jesus calls us to

enjoy God’s grace,

grow in discipleship together, and

join him in his mission to the world.

We enjoy meeting with each other and sharing worship, morning teas and lunches. Many of us are involved in study groups, and we seek to be a positive presence in the community around us.  Our main services of worship are on Sunday mornings at 10.00. Please come along and join us – visitors, explorers, and new members are welcome!

We are still here and praising God, despite a fire in our LightHouse building

Literally a “church on fire”

You may have heard the sirens, or even smelled the smoke of the recent fire in our LightHouse building, but despite this we remain “open for business”. We are blessed with plenty of spaces to meet, chat and learn together.

Sure, there is some rebuilding to do, but we are fine, really we are. Come and see it for yourself.

Special thanks to our neighbors who reported the fire and of course to the fire brigade and other emergency services involved. They did a wonderful job to save parts of the original church building and its contents.

We also wish to thank the many friends of the church and members of the local community that have extended offers of help, support and prayer while we rebuild.



Messy Church – Nov. 25th

Messy Church is held on the fourth Sunday of each month (excluding school holidays), from 5.00 to 7.00pm. It includes creative activities, brought together for a short time of informal worship, followed by a simple meal for everyone to share. All activities are “family friendly”, for all ages to join in.
