N E W   T O   C H U R C H ?
Perhaps you've been invited by someone, been connected through our community projects or events, visiting Queentsown or looking for a home Church? Or just having a nosy of our website! Great!

Maybe you've been to C3 Queenstown once before, maybe you’ve recently asked Jesus into your life.  You may have been coming to Church for a while but still don’t quite feel at home; you feel a bit like a deer in the headlights.


We want to make you feel more connected... we’re so glad you’re here, and we want to do everything we can to see you build meaningful relationships with new friends, and most importantly, with Jesus!

Our vision for you is that you know Jesus, find community and discover purpose.


An extra warm welcome to you from us! 
We hope you feel at home here and genuinely connected with our amazing team,
with love, Ps Andrew & Alana Waples
Lead Pastors C3 Queenstown

Pastors Andrew and Alana Waples love people wholeheartedly, they desire for people get to know Jesus personally and to find community through genuine connection in our Church family.  They are committed to seeing people grow and discover purpose and hope in their lives.  They believe in building a vibrant local Church that adds value to the community of Queenstown-Lakes and beyond. 

Andrew currently works part time for Church and part time building, while Alana volunteers for Church and in the community, as well as caring for their three children Jacob, Elle and Reuben. 

Pastors Andrew & Alana Waples have lived in Queenstown since May 2012.  Andrew grew up in Southland and lived in Queenstown before moving to Auckland to study, where he met Alana.  Alana grew up on the Hibiscus Coast, north of Auckland.

They met in 2004, married in 2006 and based themselves on the Hibiscus Coast, starting their family whilst continuing in leadership at C3 Church Hibiscus Coast for a combined 20 years.

In 2009 they said yes to the pull on their hearts to move to Queenstown and establish a C3 Church.  They spent an additional three years ministering and training in a variety of roles at C3 Church Hibiscus Coast before moving with their four children.
Nine months into starting C3 Queesntown, in August 2013 their family was devastated by the death of their 2 year, 10 month old daughter Violet, who unexpectedly wandered from their lakefront home in Kelvin Heights and drowned in Lake Wakatipu. 

Ps Andrew and Alana are happy to talk about their daughter Violet and their experience of grief, the peace of God that surpasses human understanding and the hope of Heaven that we have through Jesus Christ and how keeping in step with the Holy Spirit helps to get through the tough times.

C3 Church Queenstown is part of the C3 Global Movement of Churches founded by Ps Phil and Chris Pringle.  Ps Phil and Chris moved from New Zealand to Sydney, Australia in 1980 and set out to start a Church that would be contemporary, relevant and anointed.
C3 Queenstown is a local community Church that was planted by Ps Andrew and Alana Waples in November 2012.
Our vision for you is that you know Jesus, find community and discover purpose.
