Sunday Gathering 29th August

Week Two of our Level Four Lockdown sees us begin a new series on the Armour of God. So grab a coffee, tea or other hot beverage and settle in for church online this week.

As always the link will be available from around 9:00 am on Sunday morning.

Our prayer is that you will be aware of Gods presence and that He will be the one whom we keep our eyes on in this difficult time.

Shalom from Annette & Simon

Sunday Gathering 22 August

Welcome back to church online. Season Two! Yes, due to Covid-19 restrictions we are unable to gather. So we have put together a little something to help you connect with God and keep your eyes on Him in this difficult time. The video will be available from 9:00am and can be viewed by either clicking on the embedded file below or watching on YouTube.

We pray that God will meet with you as you honour Him by spending time in worship.

Shalom, Annette and Simon Williams

Church Camp

For years Kaiapoi Baptist Church has been gathering for a weekend away – Church Camp. It is a great opportunity to spend time together getting to know one another better. This year we are heading back to the Waipara Adventure Centre.

Keep the weekend of October 15th to the 17th free in your diary,

More details to come….

Wednesday on the Web

I get emails everyday that have links to Christian content. I am sure that your Social Media feed is full of memes, Scriptures’ and inspiring quotes. We glance at them and keep on scrolling, it’s just what we do.

The idea of Wednesday on the Web is that you sit down and read an article, one that will make you think, one that may challenge an area of life or faith, or both!

So grab your favourite mid-morning beverage (triple shot decaf – is not a real thing!) and enjoy this article that came into my inbox this week.

Shalom, Simon

We often talk about the Father and Son but don’t know what to do with the Spirit. Who is the Spirit? Why does the Spirit matter for how we live each day? Join us as we talk about the Lord and Life-Giver, the Holy Spirit, the under-stated but equally divine member of the Triune God; the person we know the least, who knows us best.

One-hour webinar with Carey’s systematic theology lecturer; Dr Christa McKirland.

Streamed live in the church lounge, please ensure that you arrive prior to 7:30pm.
