A great chance to get together and spend some quality time eating, chatting and having some old fashioned fun!
On the lawn next to church, under the marquee, with plenty of space to spread out. Its a BYO event and we will have a BBQ onsite so that you can burn, I mean cook your sausages or whatever else you bring.
See you there, don’t forget the sunscreen, hat and hydration!
The FOCUS Webinar Series is a monthly opportunity to engage with quality Bible College level teaching. Each session is delivered by an active academic practitioner from Carey Baptist College in Auckland.
Ten sessions throughout the year, streamed on the first Wednesday of the month.
For many of us we have heard the nativity story many times before. For many of us we have been characters in the play as we grew up. A big shout out to all those church kids who had to be camels, donkeys or sheep!
In less than seven days New Zealanders will be voting on the End of Life Choice Act. This referendum is binding, the result will decided if the provisions in the act will become part of New Zealand’s legal framework.
Throughout the debate much of the conservative voice has been silenced and mocked. David Seymour argued in public meetings that one person should not have to suffer due to the moral choices of another. A subtle slight towards those of us who hold to the sanctity of life and death.
Yet the reality of living in community means we do this everyday! In fact as a team of 5 million we all ‘suffered’ a prolonged lock down and restriction of freedoms to protect those who are vulnerable in our society from the COvid19 virus. Our choices were restricted, and are still restricted to prevent harm to our most vulnerable.
This act will have incredibly detrimental effects on the care and well being of our most vulnerable. Please click on the link below to find out how you can encourage more people to engage in this important vote.
Over the next few weeks we will be looking at Matthew 5-7, The Sermon on the Mount. We will be using some awesome video teaching from Video Bible Talks and reflections from people within our own church community.
This morning we continue our series: Women of the Bible. Annette will be sharing about Hagar and Ishmael. We will be taking communion so make sure you have some elements ready to go. Its a full service this morning….
So get comfortable and join us as we meet together as church and commit this time to grow in our relationship with God.
