Community Impact – Local Outreach

Community Impact Days are when we show God’s love to our communities in a practical way. Each Community Impact Day we mobilise over 700 volunteers around New Zealand to carry out cleaning, gardening, painting and maintenance for individuals, families and community organisations in our areas. We regularly see people’s homes and lives transformed as a result of what we do.

Village Impact India

In 2015 we have launched Village Impact Child Sponsorship India, in partnership with the orphanages founders, Ps Frank & Gladys Godberg, in Kolar Gold Fields, India. This partnership supports children across three orphanages in the state of Karnataka, India. There are two boys homes, one in Robertsonpet and Kannur Village, and a girls home in Bangarapet. 

Our hearts were touched with the potential of these beautiful children. We have great expectations of what God will do with a Christ-centered education in these nations.

Sponsorship donations go towards full-time accommodation for each child, daily meals, school education, medical care, and most importantly giving the children the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Village Impact Tanzania

Village Impact Child Sponsorship Tanzania is a partnership between City Impact Church and the Joshua primary school in Magugu, Tanzania. Over three hundred children have been sponsored to date. In an area that is 80% Muslim the school teaches a biblical curriculum, Magugu has a population of around 70,000.

Sponsorship donations go towards teachers’ salaries, children’s daily meals, school uniforms, medical care, school resources and most importantly, giving the children the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We have partnered with Pastor Luis in Cabo San Lucas, Pastor Alejandro in San Jose, and Pastor Jorge in La Paz who are all known for their community work. We help sponsor poor Mexican families through these local churches and by sending teams of volunteers we have helped with the extension of all three of these church buildings.



In 2013 we extended our Mission Outreach borders to include India. Since then we have partnered with Ps Frank and Gladys Godberg and launched City Impact Church India. Ps Frank and Gladys are involved with Missions work across 3 states; Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and Andhra Pradesh. This work includes 47 local Churches and 3 orphanages that have all been founded by Ps Frank & Gladys. In 2015 we were thrilled to extend the Village Impact initiative to include these 3 orphanages whereby the people of City Impact Church have committed to sponsoring the 80 children in these orphanages.


Since the year 2000, we have successfully built 37 health clinics across China. These incredible clinics now reach over 40,000 people every year in some of the more remote regions of China. They are maintained and repaired by City Impact Church, with church members, Keith and Jan Morris, co-ordinating the building of these medical facilities. The mission is to attend to both physical and spiritual needs; as these centres are strategically located near a local church.



In 2005 we sent our first team of 25 volunteers to the Island of Vava’u for 10 days to build a church building for Pastors Havili and Mele at City Impact Church Vava’u. In 2009, another team was sent to build an extension to accommodate their rapid growth. Then in 2012 a team of 20 volunteers was sent to City Impact Church Nuku’alofa to build a new building in 10 days for Pastors Aisea and Alisi. A team of 20 also went back to Vava’u to paint the local hospital and school, run medical clinics and run an outreach programme in the local villages.
We are thrilled to be able to support City Impact Churches in Tonga in this very practical way.



Lorraine Derick has an outreach programme called Bangkok Bible Centre, which is supported by City Impact Church. The centre targets the children and youth of Thailand by taking the gospel into state schools, even schools located in temple grounds.Through her ministry thousands have come to know Christ with many now teaching in schools on the ministry’s behalf. The centre is also involved in church planting and evangelism in rural areas.

We also support the sending of evangelistic magazines to 5000 school libraries which are read by 2 million children every year.


City Impact Church has been involved in Philippines through many outreach initiatives since the early 1990s. In 2015 we partnered with local Church Pastors; Fortune & Roselyn in Tagum City, Philippines. Since then Ps Fortune & Roselyn have established City Impact Church Philippines which includes Church plants in Tagum City, Montevista, Monkayo, and Laak all located on the Island of Mindanao. We know that through this local Church partnership we will continue to see strong healthy local Church’s established in the Philippines.




We have a strong relationship with Reverend Suliasi Kurulo, founder of Christian Mission Fellowship International. This organisation is responsible for sending missionaries from Fiji to the world’s most remote, poor and marginalised populations. Through Reverend Suliasi, we also helped to support the ‘Global Compassion’ programme during the 2012 floods in Fiji, supplying food and housing for those families displaced due to the floods.

We also support a Fiji orphanage through sending care packages and funds.


Prison Ministry

Church member Simon Cornwall heads up a team of dedicated volunteers who take the Gospel through relationship into the Prisons of our nation. The team runs training courses to equip prison inmates with practical tools to become better fathers, husbands and contributors to society. We also help to support Simon with the Recovery First initiative for men who are in the community after incarceration, as well as his “Steps to Recovery” program which rehabilitates men with addictions.



Elevate Christian Disability Trust

City Impact Church members Hugh and Di Willis have been working tirelessly with people who have disabilities since 1976. They have set up a support centre in Royal Oak that enables disabled people to connect with each other and provides an environment where they are supported and encouraged. They now have 25 centres throughout New Zealand and also run an annual camp. We also support them during the year and by sending volunteers to Elevate camp each year.

Summer Impact

For over 21 years we have mobilised teams of volunteers every Christmas holidays to attend up to 10 different campgrounds and run kids and family programmes, seeing hundreds saved every year. For more information check out the Summer Impact website.




Jerusalem Bible College

The Word of Life Bible Centre in Jerusalem was founded in 2004. This school gives students from all over the world the opportunity to listen to dynamic teaching on faith. Teachings are designed to equip the believer for their daily walk with Jesus and are all taught in biblical surroundings. City Impact Church has sent several teams of people to Jerusalem over the years.
