Growth Groups are a great place to unpack some of the teaching from the Sunday service, and also a great opportunity to ask questions, pray for each other, and enjoy some good kai together, as well as strengthening old friendships and making new ones. We have a range of groups meeting at the moment. Come along or get in touch to find out more.

Under 5s: Parent helpers please check outdoor playground equipment is securely in place. Children under 5 years only at the playcenter.

In the event of the above the protocol is:
Fire: Follow the exits. Assemble in the car park.
Earthquake: “Turtles” or take cover under seats
Tsunami: “Long and Slow – Up You Go”. Once the quake subsides we head up past room 5, toward the hills - collecting your children enroute.
