Everyone is Welcome

We are remaining faithful to the Activate Values and Mission – where we continue to create worship environments where everyone can encounter God. During this season under the Traffic Light Framework we have three types of gatherings. 

  • OPEN: No Vaccination Passport needed
  • PASSPORT: Vaccination Passports will be required
  • ONLINE: Available to all


Activate Chapel is the home of most of our Open Gatherings and offers worship, coffee and a kids programme. Located on the site of our upcoming Activate Faith Community Precinct, this is the first Sunday Church Gathering at this location. Activate Chapel is located at Activate Training Centre, 21 Ruakura Road. Download Activate Chapel Map

Our other campuses will host Open Events at times and our different ministry areas across the church are continuing to work through solutions. We'll update you as we go.  

Open Gatherings have limited numbers so we ask you to register early when you plan to attend so we can add more gathering times and make space for everyone acnz.church/register.

If you hold a vaccination passport we would encourage you to attend a Passport Gathering to make space for those at the Open Gatherings. 

Open Gathering limits
GREEN Settings: 100 per gathering. Help us make room acnz.church/register
ORANGE Settings: 50 per gathering. Help us make room acnz.church/register
RED Settings: Please meet in Groups and join the Online Gathering acnz.church/online

Masks, Social Distancing and Hand Sanitisation are encouraged. 


You will need a My Vaccine Pass to attend a Passport Gathering, but you do not need to register. 

Masks, Social Distancing and Hand Sanitisation are encouraged. 


We have members of our Activate Church family who meet online each week. Join the Live Stream via Facebook or YouTube at 10:30am every Sunday. You can get the kids involved on our Activate Kids YouTube Channel

As we navigate through this pandemic, levels, lockdowns and restrictions, there are a few things we want you to know:

1. We are here for you. If you need spiritual, physical or emotional support we’d love to help. Whether it’s prayer, food or a person to talk to just jump over to acnz.church/care or call our office number to leave a message on 07 855 0260. One of our team will get back to you as soon as we can. 

2. We care about your safety. Our churches are following the Government's latest health advice to help keep each other safe.

3. We respect you and want our churches to always be open to everyone. We respect your individual position on vaccinations and we believe places of worship should be welcoming and accessible to all people.
