    Miracle Offering!

    Having presented an estimate of the costs to the church of around $250,000 we took up our first ever building offering on the 2nd of March 2014. Just prior to the offering we received an anonymous offer to match our giving total dollar for dollar up to $150,000! Everyone gave what they felt was right for them and once the offering was counted and added to our $30,000 building account we had raised over $152,000 - amazingly matching the dollar for dollar amount which meant we now had $300,000 towards the whole project. God had said He would provision what he purposed to do.  It's not over yet as we are just in the final stages of the resource consent process, and then there is the actual work to do. However there is much excitement about finally having a place of worship and a place to invite the community to experience God’s love, through the many things God is calling us to offer.God’s timing has been perfect and His abundant blessing to us is very humbling, praise the Lord.

In recent years as the church has grown it became harder to find a reliable place to gather for worship and hold Sunday school at the same time. There were many ideas on how to solve this problem and much prayer was put into seeking God’s wisdom on where we should establish. The Church Trust already owned the old Church Manse in Beech Street as an asset. With the need for a place to hold services and meetings clearly greater than the need for a manse, the decision was made to sell the Manse when ever God revealed the right property. So in May 2013 while viewing another property for possible rent as a temp church building a very interesting thing happened. All of the trustees present at that first viewing were of the same opinion very quickly that this was the best building we had seen and it was in the best possible location for us as a church, it felt right. The question was asked if it was for sale? It wasn&r..
