Welcome to the Christ College Auckland Campus!

Christ College is launching a new campus in Auckland, New Zealand. Our Auckland Campus will allow New Zealand citizens to study part-time via intensive mode towards an Australian College of Theology (ACT) award from 2020.

Christ College’s vision is to see growth in Christ-centred leadership for God’s church to God’s world – a world that includes New Zealand!

A Message from our Principal

Christ College exists for the formation of Christ-centred leaders for God’s church to God’s world. From 2020 we’ll be doing this in an additional location — Auckland.

The venue will be different, but our vision and mission will remain unchanged. We remain committed to the authority of the Bible, to Christ-centred Reformed Theology, and to transformative and applied theological education for adult learners.

Please join us in praying that this new venture will train up future leaders who are committed to the Christian gospel and that this will result in real kingdom growth in New Zealand and beyond.

Ian Smith, Principal
