Cornerstone Ministries

At Cornerstone Church Rolleston we believe in Building People to Build Communities. We are passionate about fostering a strong and united community of believers who are dedicated to serving others and spreading the love of God.

Our Ministries are designed to empower individuals, equip them with the necessary tools, and inspire them to make a positive impact in their neighborhoods, workplaces, and beyond. We believe that by building up individuals, we can strengthen and uplift entire communities.

We understand the value of social events in nurturing relationships and fostering a sense of belonging. We believe that these gatherings provide an opportunity for people to connect, build friendships, and experience the joy of community. From potluck dinners and game nights, to outdoor adventures and service projects, our social events cater to diverse interests and age groups, ensuring there's something for everyone.

We invite you to join us as we journey together, supporting and encouraging one another in our faith. Through our Ministries and engaging social events, we aim to provide a nurturing environment where you can grow spiritually, form meaningful connections, and discover your unique purpose.

In Romans 12:5, we find the inspiration to build a vibrant community: "So in Christ, we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others." This verse highlights the importance of unity and belonging within the church. It reminds us that we are part of a larger family where every individual matters and contributes to the growth and well-being of the community.

Whether you are seeking spiritual guidance, fellowship, or simply a place to belong, our Church Ministries warmly welcomes you. Together, let us build a community where individuals are empowered, relationships are cherished, and lives are transformed.

Cornerstone Ministries

Cornerstone Church is committed to "Building People to Build Communities." We aim to create a strong, united community of believers dedicated to serving and spreading God's love. Our ministries empower individuals, providing tools to make a positive impact in their neighborhoods. Social events play a vital role in nurturing relationships and belonging.

We are inspired by Romans 12:4-8 (NIV), "For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. 6We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; 7if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully." which emphasizing unity and belonging.

Join us in building an empowered, connected, and transformed community.

Our Five Cornerstones


Cornerstone Church is a community led by the Holy Spirit. We love encountering him individually and corporately too.  For us what counts is daily encounters with God, experiencing his presence and leading.  We are committed to the biblical outworking of the Spirit in all of us. 

Exodus 33:14, My presence will go with you and I will give you rest


We believe God has designed each of us individually and uniquely.  When put together, it is all of our backgrounds,  experiences and gifts that make up Cornerstone Church's expression of the body of Christ. We want to honour being what God has called us to be. We value genuineness and people, over process or procedure. We are honest about our struggles, and we lead with integrity and transparency.

Romans 12:9, Let love be genuine.


Life is about growth. To be part of Cornerstone Church is to be growing in life and faith with no barriers. It's about a daily journey of genuine encounters with God. As we live for Jesus, we are being transformed by his power and for his purpose. In this process, we become more like him and more uncomfortable with being stagnent in our spiritual life.

Luke 8:15, But the seed on good soil stand for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.


From our very beginning, Cornerstone Church has been a community and has also been a family. We are a family centered in Christ, and our goal is to have a unity which is created by Christ.  We partner with God in his work of transforming lives and communities, both locally and globally. While being part of this, we hope to be transformed ourselves through the process. We love our wider community and have a focus on sharing God's love with people in genuine and authentic ways.

Matthew 28:19, Therefore go and make disciples of all nations. Baptising them in the name of the Father, of the Son and the Holy Spirit.


Cornerstone Church is about life, not just on Sunday, but through the whole week. We are an ever growing and interconnected family which loves, lives with, and serves each other.  We are about creating environments where people connect with God, and connect with each other. We connect others to God with Jesus at the centre of it all.

John 13:34, Love one another as I have loved you
