Welcome to Kaiapoi Baptist

For over 100 years we have been a community of people gathering just north of the mighty Waimakiriri River to honour and worship God. We are a diverse bunch of people from across North Canterbury – and beyond who desire to see the Kingdom of God impact our lives and the lives of those in our community.

It would be great to see you, feel free to come visit.

Summer Teaching Series

This summer we have will be looking at what it means to be unsuccessful.

This Series will begin on Sunday January 7th.

This is an awesome resource of video teaching and discussion from the team at 24-7 Prayer.

No matter what we achieve or how much we gain, ‘success’ can always feel out of reach. In the midst of our anxious and exhausted culture, Jesus invites us to redefine success on his terms. In the Kingdom of God, success is not about what we have but who we are becoming…

New Sermon Series

This week (October 28th) we begin a new series: Philemon – A small book, with a BIG message. Philemon is the shortest of Paul’s letters. Its brevity is no excuse to ignore the powerful and poetic statements that Paul makes in a letter that is under 400 words in length.

Join us and discover over four weeks how this Epistle can help us to be the people of God here in Kaiapoi, and beyond.

Stones to Remember

As part of our series in Joshua we took a moment to reflect on moments of God’s faithfulness in our lives. Our original foundation stone reminds us of a faithful people who trusted a faithful God in our early beginnings.

Just as the Israelites (Joshua 4:8-9) placed stones on the banks of the Jordan we have stones in our lives that remind us of God’s faithfulness and provision.

Each person was encouraged to write on the card and then take a small white stone as a physical reminder they could place in their home, so that they would remember. (Joshua 4:7)
