A diverse caring community reaching out with the awesome power of God's Word and Spirit that all may know and celebrate Jesus love and hope.

Welcome to Mountainside Lutheran Church! We are a parish of the Lutheran Church of Australia and New Zealand. We hope that you can get a feel for our community as you take a look at our site.

We are a diverse community of Lutheran Christians in the extremely diverse city of Auckland, New Zealand. We have over 20 nationalities represented among our people and we regularly gather around the Word of God and the Sacraments of baptism and Holy Communion at 10.00am every Sunday morning.

If you are ever around Mt Wellington in Auckland, come and visit us one Sunday. Remember; its the big yellow building on the corner of Ellerslie-Panmure Highway and Harris Road.

Our Worship times are 10am, Sundays.

The longest Lutheran Lunch

God blessed us with a beautiful spring day, as the members and friends of Mountainside Lutheran Church in Auckland, NZ, gathered to share fellowship and hospitality with our community and with each other.

Within half an hour of our Reformation Day worship service ending, we had set up long rows of tables lined by chairs. Many hands helped to cover the tables with paper, set out carafes of juice and water, and organise the food.
Lunch was ready, and we formed a long line to be served with long bread rolls filled with lettuce and carrot, ham, egg salad, cheese and tomato, with potato salad and rice salad on the side. It took some time to serve around 90 people, but it was worth waiting for. Dessert of cup cakes, fruit salad and ice cream followed.
Mountainside members had invited friends to come along, and we invited residents in the neighbouring streets by offering them a voucher for a free lunch. We felt happy and blest to be able to share our hospitality in this way. Praise God for his generosity to us all.
Visse Hopley,
Mountainside Lutheran Church
