First time here?


Our commitment is to the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit as revealed in the 66 books of the Bible. We believe the Bible is the very word of God. We confess the truths of the Bible in our secondary doctrinal standards: The Belgic Confession of Faith, The Heidelberg Catechism, The Canons of Dort, and the Westminster Confession of Faith.

Our worship practice follows that of historic Reformed and Presbyterian churches. We invite you to join us for worship each Sunday at 10:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at our temporary location, 1211 Ada Street, Hastings. Our pastor is Rev. Peter Kloosterman and you can listen to some of his recent sermons right here on this site!

You can also find more information about our church activities by clicking on the links above. Our pastor will be happy to meet with you to talk about any spiritual matters. Ring Peter on (06) 876-4351 or email him at
