Welcome to Wanaka Lighthouse

Kia ora

Welcome to the Wanaka Lighthouse, we are a down to earth group of people, passionate about seeking God and loving others. We live in the very beautiful, bustling and rapidly growing Upper Clutha district of New Zealand - with the township of Wanaka as our base.

Ours is a mixed aged community - some active kids, lots of active 20 somethings... middle aged and more... Our meetings are sometimes noisy and a little chaotic - but we want everyone to feel at home so we celebrate the craziness!

We have a desire for Gods love to be displayed through natural relationship in our community - and our church family is drawn from a very wide range of vocations and employment settings. On the whole we are a fairly creative bunch... entrepreneurial, artistic, business minded and more. We are happily mixing with all the sections of our community!

We are not trying to build a church, but rather we are a community of people that love and care for each other - we do this by having fun, hanging out with each other, drinking coffee, encouraging each other, watching movies, praying for each other, supporting each other, ministering and hearing the word of God for each other.

We believe when we do this....then GOD BUILDS HIS CHURCH.

The Lighthouse Wanaka was founded in 2005 as the first church plant from it’s parent church ‘Mammoth Lighthouse’, located on the East side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California. The Lighthouse was grown from a bible study, starting in 1998 at the home of Dave and Stevie Nelson to reaching around the globe with now 7 Lighthouse locations in different nations, including WANAKA!

We welcome you to come and join any of our meetings or activities, whether you are visiting Wanaka or looking to find a church community.
