Auckland Deaf Christian Fellowship

The ADCF is a Deaf Church for Deaf and hearing impaired people.

Everyone is welcome to come and join us.

We worship at

Methodist Peninsular Church
1 Orchard Rd (cnr) Rose Bank Rd

We meet together for worship on the 1st and 3rd Sunday each month.
Service time for both services are 2.15 to 5pm.

On the 2nd Saturday of week for a social activity.

We believe it is important for people to feel included in all that we do, whether people sign, lip read or speak.

Everything we do, including socials, worship services and just getting together, is for Deaf and hearing impaired people.
