Since 2001, Pastor Dale & Rachel Meacheam have had a vision for the city of Palmerston North. Leaving their hometown of Tokoroa with their two children, they felt called to pastor an existing church that required fresh vision & direction. Their heart was and is to inspire, impact, influence and build a church of increase in Palmerston North and the nation. After three years of meeting in a run down church building, and with a congregation of fifty people Ps Dale and Rachel established Alphabet Academy childcare, a non for profit community childcare centre. At the same time Vision Community Trust was started with only fifty dollars in the account and later in 2008, two acres of land worth over a million dollars was purchased to build a state of the art building with a six hundred seat auditorium, dance studio, recording suite, design studio and multiple other rooms for the community.

Now in 2017, with a growing & vibrant congregation Vision Church is stepping into a new season of expansion and we would love you to join us on this incredible and exciting journey forward.


Our vision is to see people near and far from God have a radical encounter with the love of Jesus; nurturing and developing them to become mature followers of Christ and releasing them in their God given calling to build the local church.
