Church Vintage Picnic

A great chance to get together and spend some quality time eating, chatting and having some old fashioned fun!

After the service, 12 noon, 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!

Welcome to Spring!

Don’t you just love the change of seasons, when the spring flowers bloom, the baby animals are born and the weather turns nicer? Below is a photo taken by Sarah-Jane on the Godley Heads walking track. It reminds me of when in the Bible Jesus is referred to as the Lamb of God. The reason for this is that Jesus came to be the sacrifice for our sins, lambs were used in Jewish culture as a sacrifice to God. I know for myself, I sure am grateful for Jesus’ sacrifice for me to be able to have a life eternal with God.

If you or someone you know is seeking the answers to life and how to live it better, we are currently running an Alpha Course and would love for others to join us on the 13th September in the back lounge at Kaiapoi Baptist Church, at 3 pm. Afternoon tea is provided so come have a cuppa and a conversation about life’s difficult questions.

Keeping Up Appearances Seminar

On a Friday morning in late August over 50 people gathered to hear a presentation by the NZ Police and the North Canterbury Family Violence Network. A big thank you to the Person to Person Help Trust for organizing this event and providing an amazing breakfast! The presentation delivered some challenging data about domestic violence in NZ and in North Canterbury.

Attached are the presentation slides.
