We love the mentoring and relationship we receive from our wider movement, The Wesleyan Methodist Church of Aotearoa-New Zealand. We appreciate the richness of our wider family and heritage:
A desire to make truth available to all
The priority of grace as God’s gift for living
Emphasising life transformation as the heart of Christian growth
Freedom and innovation in worship
The affirmation of women as pastors and church leaders
Embracing our multi-cultural context in New Zealand
Collaborating in overseas missions work with our sister church in Bougainville
Our sister church East City Wesleyan is located on the other side of Howick in the Burswood/Botany area.
OUR MISSION PARTNERS
We actively partner with Young Life New Zealand around Youth Work in schools and SIM NZ as part of our support of Nigel and Richelle Webb (Colombian missionaries) and Rob and DaNae Reynolds (National Office).
OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY
cession|community is a member church of the East Auckland Ministers' Association (EAMA) because we believe in the unity and cooperation of the Body of Christ. Our pastor currently serves on the Association leadership team as part of our desire to be one with other churches across Howick.
We value the relationship we have with our co-tenants at the Depot and the wider Depot Community of which we are all part.
