ARISE Church began in 2002 with seven people in a small dance and drama studio in Wellington, New Zealand.
From the very beginning, the dream was to build a church for people who felt lost. Not a church for the religious, but for individual people who were distant from God with the hope that they would come to know God personally and know fullness of life in Him. Sixty seven people attended our first ever service. Since that initial step of faith, God has continued to breathe on us; growing our impact and reach. Through new campus launches, university outreach, youth outreach, praise & worship albums, online and TV broadcasts, hosting conferences and timely sermons of truth and love, ARISE has continued to grow and bring the message of truth and love to New Zealand and beyond. Our vision is big, but our focus continues to be small – impacting every individual person with the truth and love of Jesus. November 2017 marked 15 incredible years of ARISE Church. However, we know this is only just the beginning of our story. For more information on service times, go to www.arisechurch.com
