Sunday Service 5 December
Join with us this week as we worship God together. Phil is sharing and will introduce our theme for next year. We're looking forward to hearing what he has to share.
This week is the second week of our 3 weeks trialling three services. We are pleased with how this is going. Last week 80 more people were able to attend church thanks to the third service. It's good to be together. We welcome you to share feedback on this trial - what works well for you and what could be improved.
As you'll likely be aware our country is now in the traffic light system for covid management. We are now required to operate within orange settings. The good news is that there are services available for everyone to attend. We'll be thrilled to welcome all those at any of our services on Sunday!
This week our services are:

9am & 10:15am services - require a vaccine pass to attend for all those aged over 12 yrs & 3 months. We're required to check your pass on entry so have it handy (hard copy or app on your phone).

11:30am service - requires a ticket to attend. Book tickets here.

Kids programmes for preschoolers, primary and intermediates aged kids are running in all services. Intermediates programmes begin at the start of each service in the office meeting room. So intermediate kids go straight to their programme and are picked up by parents at the end of each service.

Our services will start on time, so make sure you allow enough time to park your car and get into the building ready for the start of the service.

We'll be thrilled to welcome you!

Baptism Service 19 Dec
Our next baptism service is Sunday 19 December. If you're thinking of taking this step in your faith journey talk to Phil, Matt, Mark, Dave or Christy. We'd love to talk with you and support you as you consider baptism.

Junior Youth Camp
Thanks to those who prayed for our Junior Youth camp in Wainui last weekend. We had a great time. The weather was horrible but it didn’t stop a freezing cold jump off the wharf or a dunk in the river - followed by warm showers of course (kids are crazy!!). We had some amazing messages and some really deep thinking about what it means to walk the narrow road - how we find it, how we stay on it, what we take with us, what we can’t take with us, and how we treat others along the way. Thanks for your support of our young people, this is such a fun community to lead and is full of some absolute world changers!!
