He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata.

What is the most important thing in the world? It is people, it is people, it is people. 

The Church is more than a building. It's more than a Sunday Service.

It's a community.

 

If meaningful relationships lie at the heart of every community, it takes more than a couple of hours on Sunday to make that happen. So we've put together some groups to help us develop those relationships with one another. These groups will run throughout Term 2, some of which may continue and while others will finish. If you would like to join a group in Term 2 click the link below.
