Our Story
We invite you to take a stroll with us down memory lane and rejoice with us as we recall the great things God has done.

The Discovery Christian Centre was formerly known as the Kelson Christian Centre and our first Sunday morning service was held at the Kelson Community Centre on 10th November 1996. The Lord's blessing was evident and by February 1998 we had outgrown the Community Centre and we relocated to the Kelson Primary School Hall. Accommodation considerations made it necessary to continue our Children's Ministry at the Community Centre. However, operating in two separate locations was not ideal and we began to seriously investigate the possibility of owning our own purpose built facility.

In mid-1997 one of our local home groups was prayer walking when they came upon an area of dense gorse and scrub. Immediately they felt prompted to stop, pray and claim this site for our future church facility. To this end they pushed through the gorse and around a bog to find a small open clearing where heart-felt prayer was offered for this provision. Praise God, this is the spot where the current doors of our social area lead into an attractive courtyard of our facility today. Surely we serve a great God!

In May 2000 we purchased this property and started a four-year period of planning, designing our facility and working through consent procedures. Our first working bee was held on Saturday 13th November 2004 and we are proud and grateful to say that our church was almost entirely built by voluntary labour. We praise God for His supply and we are sincerely grateful to those who gave so freely of their time, finance and labour to get the work done.

Praise God, just over 2 years later on 11 February 2007 we held our first service in our new facility, and there was more to come! On Monday 22nd April 2007, the Early Learning Centre opened its doors to future generations of Kelson and Greater Lower Hutt residents.

Coinciding with our move into our new facility it was decided to change our name from Kelson Christian Centre to Discovery Christian Centre. This was done to bring it in line with our church mission of assisting people in their on-going journey of discovering God, their God-given identity and fulfilment of God's purpose in their lives.

We can truly say that thus far the Lord has wonderfully provided and we have confidence in Him for all our future needs.
