Sunday the 29th November became ‘Baptism Sunday’ at the East Campus of Celebration Church. Following our Love Revolution worship service, 63 people decided to make a public declaration of their faith, and be baptised. As live worship filled the air, and in true open-air style, people took the plunge as family and friends gathered to watch and celebrate. Watch for our next ‘Baptism Sunday’ coming in 2016!
We had an amazing time at 412 Living Loud Conference, with over 250 young people in attendance with many travelling in from our movement churches in Rarotonga, Nelson, Kaikohe and Invercargill. Four days packed with seven powerful sessions, a harvest outreach seeing over x30 new decisions for Christ, great food and a Saturday afternoon of crazy Hawaiian themed sports topped off with the best praise party 412 has ever seen to date! 412 were both challenged and encouraged with messages of “Living Loud” stemming from what our mantra is 1 Tim 4:12 …not letting anyone look down on you because you are young but set an example of a life that lives loud for Him! Be sure not to miss out on 412 Conference 2016! For video highlights click here.
When over 150 men from all ages and walks of life, come together on one weekend, you know it’s going to be awesome! Our first ever ‘BUILT FOR MEN’ event, ‘Boost Your Status’ was a resounding success. The day began with our ‘mantastic’ worship team, backed up by some powerful preaching challenging us to live lives of legacy, to take our place in the world and chase after the dream God has for our lives.
The afternoon was filled with fierce competition, growling engines, and quality food, including a head Teppanyaki chef and evening catering by the famous Bacon Brothers; while ‘The Panel’ after dinner deserved its own highlights reel.
Stay sharp, & keep watch for ‘Built for Men 2016’, a day you will not want to miss!
