Welcome to Diverse Church
Diverse Church is a home
for Rainbow people of faith
Connecting LGBTTQIA+ Christians across Aotearoa
Who we are
Diverse Church was established to connect with those who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, takatāpui, intersex, non-binary, queer and questioning, who also hold a faith. Sexuality, Gender Identity and Spirituality are three parts of person’s identity that are equally important.
We believe that all these parts of a persons life deserve to be celebrated and a connection to a faith group or church, is one important way to connect with a great community.
We are multiplying
All over New Zealand, people are feeling safe to speak out about their diverse sexual orientation or gender identity and are being welcomed and affirmed in their church community.
Diverse Church is a community not confined by walls but connected by our shared stories and experiences.
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
– Psalm 139:113-14
