Welcome to West Campus!
Haere mai! We're Timmy and Sarah and we'd love to invite you to join our West Campus whānau! We really hope that you will encounter God's love as we worship, hear his word, and hang together after the service as a family.
Going into a new environment can feel strange and confronting at times, however, our team will make sure you and any family members you may have with you will be looked after! We'd love for you to hang around after the service so we can meet and chat. Let us get you a coffee and spend some time together!
Here at West, we are a family of all ages who are passionate to see God's will be done in our community. Our heart is to see many nations join our church family and be like a reflection of heaven; where every nation is gathered around the throne of God.
Oline & Craig Utting
We’ve been married since 1996 and have four amazing children. Our eldest two children live in Auckland, whilst our younger two live here in Christchurch. Oline works as a Radiation Therapist at Christchurch Hospital and Craig as Associate Principal at Middleton Grange School.
We moved from Auckland to Christchurch at the beginning of 2018 and have loved being a part of the Grace Vineyard whānau! We're so grateful that God led us to West Campus where we've been able to connect with such incredible people. Both of us enjoy serving on a Sunday morning and hosting a Lifegroup. West Campus is an awesome community that we love being part of!
The Hikuroa Family
Kia ora we are the Hikuroa whānau. We joined Grace West when it was planted in 2018 and have loved this church community since our first service! We have five amazing kids; Grace who serves in worship and at youth, Bella who is currently serving on missions in South Sudan, Ihaia, Tiahomaia and Tikai. They are in kingdom influence training (starting with following instructions 😉).
We have been married since 2000 and learnt early on that church community and keeping God central is the secret to making it work! We are passionate about worship, food, family and fellowship. If you see us around we would love you to say "hi," if you can shout louder than the kids! 😊

Matty & Astrid Sutherland
We are the Sutherland’s! These are our two boys Olly (3) and Mack (1.5) I’m a builder and Astrid was a neo-natal nurse until she became a full-time Mum, We have been apart of Grace for 6 years, currently we are planting West Campus with an awesome team, it’s been really exciting to be apart of a community that is passionate to see Jesus move in peoples lives, to be the hope of the world so people can find truth and have purpose!
Nat & Josh Down
We are newly weds with jobs in teaching and engineering.
One of our favourite past times are having dinner with friends, so feel free to invite us around whenever 😉
It has been awesome being a part of what God is doing at West Campus. We have found our faith come alive rather than just being church seat warmers.
We look forward to seeing the same for our community.
Theo & Laura Mortimer
Hey, we are Laura & Theo and have been married for 5 Years. We have both been going to Grace for over 15 Years, growing up in the youth group etc. We absolutely love the culture & the people at Grace! We are also building a house in Halswell so are living in the West community. Theo is a builder and Laura works in events, so we love hands-on mucking in behind the scenes. We are looking forward to seeing where West goes & being part of it for years to come!
