HOW WE STARTED
SUNDAY SERVICES & PRAYER
The Assemblies of God (Otorohanga) Church was founded in 1985. It was originally a church in its own right, but in the 1990’s, as membership declined; it became a cell church under the “Waitomo Christian Fellowship” in Te Kuiti. By that time it had assumed the name “Otorohanga Christian Fellowship”. The congregation purchased a new building and determined to re-establish the fellowship, installing a full time pastor in January 2001. We are still affiliated to Assemblies of God New Zealand (Inc.).
Things started to happen, the church started growing, and the name was changed to “Harvest Christian Fellowship”, as a part of the vision that God was giving us.
In Early 2005, we embarked on an ambitious project to impact our community. We established a second trust (Harvest Centre Trust – now named Thrive Otorohanga Youth Trust) which set about establishing a community and youth centre available for all of Otorohanga.
WHAT WE DO
We currently run three connect groups. There is a very successful Fijian connect group on Sunday afternoon. Fortnightly on a Monday evening, there is a connect group hosted by Denise, and On Wednesday evenings, we utilize technology and have a Bible Study via Zoom. We are always looking for new opportunities to invest in connect groups of all descriptions.
On this page we will be advertising upcoming events, or reporting on something we have recently undertaken. Church is about more than Sunday mornings. We love having fellowship picnics, maybe going camping, having a BBQ or something similar. If there is something coming up – this page will have it for you.
Here you can catch up with any of the recent sermons preached. We try to keep a balance between using our local preachers, and inviting guest speakers. Sermons are usually recorded and uploaded to our YouTube Channel, but they can be accessed through this page.
