Good Friday Service

A Reflective Service based on Mark 15:25-41. This day can only be called good because we know Sunday is coming. For the disciples and those at the foot of the cross, there was nothing good in what they experienced that day. Today pause and reflect on the crucifixion of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Sunday Gathering 05/04

Good morning church. Another week has come and gone, some things continue to change and challenge us but God remains the same. This week is Palm Sunday so our service will focus on Jesus as he enters Jerusalem, with a crowd cheering and waving Palm branches.

We have recorded another short service (with the help of a few others) and pray that God will be with you as commit this time to Him.


Sunday Gathering 29/03

Good morning church. We are four days into the restrictions due to
Covid-19. This means that we cannot meet as church, as we usually do. This doesn’t mean that we stop being the church.

We have recorded a short service for you to connect with and engage with in your bubbles. So grab those people you have been spending plenty of time with this week and settle in.

The teaching is called: Life is a Roller-coaster, I’m sure that is something we can all agree with at the moment.

Reflection Questions

  • What is robbing you of abundant life in Christ today?
  • What things are going to allow you to thrive in your life during this time?
  • Are you living life to the full on Jesus’ terms or a second rate life on your own terms?
  • What would it take for you to live life to the full with Jesus Christ?

Leave a comment below and let us know that you logged in and had church with us today. May God continue to be present in your life and be a source of comfort and strength.

LIFE – Vision and Mission 2020

Where is God leading us this year?

God has plans and purposes for us this year. As we begin 2020 let’s look at what makes us who we are here at Kaiapoi Baptist.

Our vision and mission came out a retreat with the Eldership and has begun to inform how we live and become the people of God in this time and space.

We are about LIFE – not just for us but for those who are yet to grasp the amazing grace and love that God has for all of us and for His creation.

Our series begins on January 19th. See you there.

Choose LIFE

We are all about Food for LIFE here at Kaiapoi Baptist Church. It is the tag line of our vision. So this year we are starting a series called CHOOSE Life. It will look at issues of the day. It will help us live as followers of Jesus in a complicated world. The series will be spread throughout the year and begins next week as we tackle: Euthanasia.

CHOOSE Life will also be looking at such diverse topics as: Anger, Abortion, Pornography, Drugs, and Gender.
