WWJD – What would Jesus do? Looking at the life of Jesus and how He would have dealt with day to day issues.


Current is an independent, non-denominational Christian Church that is Christ-centered and Bible focused.
We are an international blend of people on a mission to share the story and person of Christ. After watching an explosion of new people and diverse cultures in Papamoa, we saw an opportunity to create a church that would bring people together, serve our community and make a difference in people’s lives.

We are also here to partner with our local schools and community groups to help support people any way we can.



Although we are not required to wear masks, Papamoa College has asked us to mask as we come into the building and are visiting in the lobby. During worship inside the theatre we encourage you to use your discretion and respect one another’s comfort levels. There will be social distancing seating available in the theatre as well.
The idea is to ease into meeting together with protocols in place to allow everyone to feel safe. Please mask up as you arrive and QR Code (or sign-in) at the door.
THANK YOU for following these protocols as we REGATHER as a church family at Papamoa College this Sunday!
