how we gather

In the home

In home gatherings are a welcoming place to invite friends and whānau, they're a safe space to grow in your relationship with God and find community within The Found. 

We tend to start with a shared meal, followed by a video teaching series, with practical Biblical teaching, an opportunity for questions and prayer together.

We also run Alpha for those with questions about life and faith.

Tuesday + Thursday nights throughout the Whakatipu.

who are the found?

We were all once lost, misfits going our own way, until Jesus found us; he never gives up searching for us. His love is relentless. The father is waiting for you to come home. Let the revelation of love come flooding in. The birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus changes our lives and futures forever. If we are willing to turn away from sin and self and believe in Him, we are forgiven, we are free, no longer lost, we are The Found.

Luke 15


The Found is a community of followers of Jesus, a Christian Church, gathering throughout the week in homes around the Whakatipu and on Sundays in the Whare Karakia in Frankton, Tāhuna Queenstown.

We are part of the C3 Church Global Movement of Churches, together we are Christ-centred, Spirit-powered + connect-driven.  We want people to know Jesus in a fresh, personal way; to have a real-time connection with God.

We are a hospitable people, generous, fun and full of life. We are committed to healthy and growing churches around the world and as an international family, you can walk into any C3 Church like ours and know you're home.
