Island Bay Presbyterian Church




Welcome to Island Bay Presbyterian Church We are a community of pilgrims seeking to love and support one another, and our wider community, as we journey through life. 

As a Presbyterian church we are oriented towards the God of the Bible, who is made known to us most fully in Jesus Christ, who calls us to follow in the way of Christ, and who dwells in us through the presence of the Holy Spirit.

Our community contains a diversity of perspectives and backgrounds as we strive to listen to God, learn from each other, and be inspired to live in the Light of God. We believe that everyone has a place and everyone has a gift to offer, so we strive to involve all ages and abilities in our church. 

You are welcome to journey with us, with our primary gathering being our 10am service on a Sunday morning where we give space to a variety of traditions and musical styles in our worship together. 

For the latest weekly "Sunday News" click here. The 'Bay Kids' winter 2015 newsletter is still available, with lots of info on what, who and where for fun and sanity-saving children's activities.
