There are many ways in which you can connect with us here at Te Hāhi Iriri O Te Awakairangi – Hutt City Baptist Church. No matter what your age or stage, you are welcome.
Below is a little about our services. But don’t just come on Sundays we believe ‘church’ is also our Lifegroups, Children and Young People, Women’s, Men’s, Seniors and Outdoor Fellowship groups
Each week we join together as one to worship God through song and study in His Word through scripture.
Our 6:30pm service is a little different to the morning service. Each week we offer a time and place to gather around issues, prayer, support and training.
It may pay to check with the office to see if this service is on.
Finding us & What to Expect
We’re on Lower Hutt’s High Street, and we share our building with Reading Hutt Pop-Up Cinema and Hot Gossip Cafe. On Sundays, free parking can be found on High Street, Dudley Street, or others close by. The Riverbank Carpark is also available.
As you enter you’ll be greeted by some friendly faces. Up the stairs, or elevator if you’d prefer, is the main auditorium where our church whānau meets. Creche is also upstairs and available any time during the service. Our children’s programmes start with us in the service and then head off downstairs (see below for more information on that).
If you have a prayer need, there is a supportive team available after the service to pray with you.
At Hutt City Baptist Church, we encourage all people to be connected into a LifeGroup.
LifeGroups are not just Bible study groups. They are a gathering of people on a spiritual journey doing life together. They may include Bible studies but the intention is that three core things are happening:
Groups usually meet at someone’s home, with the intention of helping each other grow in Christ through corporate prayer and support.
LifeGroups are vitally important to the healthy life of our church and a way of you being connected at Hutt City Baptist.

It's a big wide world out there after you leave High School. It's easy to get lost. Our Young Adult's programme is designed to keep you connected with the church and provide a strong foundation to continue your journey in Christ.
We have a range of different activities to cater for children from birth through to the end of Year 6. For our smallest tamariki and their whānau, a creche with the live-streamed service is available. Stepping Stones and Living Stones are for children aged 3-5 years and 6-11 years respectively during the school term.
Waffle Wednesday is a midweek group for children aged 8+ who want to go deeper in their relationship with God. We do this through prayer, reading the bible, music, discussion, and creativity. We start when you can get here after school for waffles (and fruit) and finish by 5pm. A koha is appreciated to cover costs. Waffle Wednesday is a 6-week programme run in the middle weeks of the school term.
We have the space! Come along Thursday mornings to the entrance on High Street. Preschoolers and their caregivers are welcome. Come and go as suits you. Hot drinks and water are provided, and you are welcome to bring your own snacks. Entry is free – there is no charge and you do not need to book in advance!
