Who Are We?

Our story starts many years ago, when Phil and Liz Cooper experienced a grace-filled, bible-inspired, community-minded church whilst in Palmerston North. After a brief stop in Christchurch, they found themselves on an OE (overseas experience) in London. Here they came into contact with Ken and Carol Shelley and the Newfrontiers family of churches.

Once again, they found a church with an emphasis on grace, the word and community and it resonated with them. After a few years they headed back to Christchurch with, to their surprise, Ken and Carol Shelley and team to plant a Newfrontiers church. That was in Septermber 2001. Since then King’s Church, Christchurch has grown and Phil became an elder and then a full-time pastor there. During that time Phil and Liz developed a burden for Nelson and began to seek God about starting a church here. They were soon joined by Josh and Karen Shelley and 13 years after the initial church was planted, Mosaic Community Church has begun.

What an amazing journey God leads us on!
