Kingdom Conference: New Zeal & Leaders Advance 24-26 May 2019

Thursday, April 11th, 2019

CLICK HERE for Information Booklet and Registration Form

CLICK HERE to Register Online

Kingdom Conference was birthed out of a desire to bring a conference where we can come together as family and pursue more of God. This would be a time of refreshment and encounter.

We know that at times ministry can be like going through the desert and we want to continue to make this conference a time where we get to come together and spur each other on and see God move and speak to us all.

For Jess and I we have seen this conference as a sort of family reunion, in that we know there is a sound that this conference brings that is familiar to lot of people and we see this time as an opportunity to gather and share the stories that have taken place for us over the past year. To add to the conference, this year we will have a cafe set up so that people can talk during the break times and have a comfortable space to do this. we will also make sure there is a live feed in that room so that if you are in the middle of a conversation you can continue it without missing out on anything going on in the room next door.

Also this year the organising team has decided that it would be a great idea to have a Leaders Advance on the Friday during the day. This would be a time for officers and leaders (anyone) to come and get some awesome additional teaching/Leadership training.

Our prayer is that we would make this a priority and a must be at event for this year. We will not want to miss what God is going to do.

More Details will come in the coming weeks.

Coping With Tragedy and Trauma

Sunday, March 17th, 2019

How do we get through when we witness tragedy? In Christchurch, we have just witnessed a senseless and horrific mass shooting. This is unheard of in our neck of the woods, and as such many people are understandably shaken by it. Whatever kind of tragedy or trauma we face, here are a few thoughts that may help from Richard Black, a counsellor based in Christchurch.

The Foodbank Project Logo

The Foodbank Project is thrilled to announce that they’re expanding again. They’ve made a new hub in Lower Hutt at Hutt City Salvation Army!

Liz and the team at the new Hutt City hub received their first delivery on Tuesday 9 October. They’re so excited to be part of The Foodbank Project, to receive the generous donations of the Hutt donors and to be able to help more people in the Lower Hutt community. Liz says that on average, they hand out 20-30 food parcels every week to around 90 people (both individuals and families).

“We’re thrilled to be joining with the Foodbank Project! Numbers of food parcels distributed has doubled over the last twelve months indicating increasing stress on folk to make ends meet. Thanks so much for your support.” – Liz, Hutt City Salvation Army Community Ministries Manager

Try Alpha With Us – Starting July 24 2018

Saturday, June 30th, 2018

Everyone Explores…Life, Faith & Meaning.

All of us explore. We ask questions, we seek answers. Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explores all the big questions of life with food, a talk and open discussion.

***UPDATE*** EVEN THOUGH THE COURSE HAS JUST STARTED, YOU ARE STILL NOT TO LATE TO JOIN US.

Come and join us for our next Alpha Course at Hutt City Salvation Army (Corner of Kings Crescent and Cornwall Street, Lower Hutt).
It will be on Tuesday nights from 7:30-9:30pm starting on 24th July and runs for 11 weeks, plus one (optional) weekend away.
Supper is included and it is completely free of charge.

To make enquiries or to register for the course please contact Mike Carrington:
Phone (04) 570 0273 ext. 214      Email: [email protected]

What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith.

Each session looks at a different question, and is assigned to create conversation. No two Alphas look the same – they run in coffee shops, churches, bars, prisons, universities, schools and homes. There’s no pressure, no follow-up and no charge; it’s just an open, informal, and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.

What’s Involved?

Food – Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. Most sessions start with food, because it’s a great way to build community and get to know each other.

Talk – The talks are designed to be engaging and inspire conversation. Usually around 30 minutes long, they explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions like “Who is Jesus?”, “Why and how do I pray?” and “How does God guide us?”

Discussion – Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas about the talk without being corrected or judged. There’s no obligation to say anything; it’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective.
