Children's Church

Our Children's Church runs each Sunday during church service (except in School Holidays). The children do a range of activities which include getting to know the bible, prayer and playing games and having fun. Our passion is to give children the space to know God and experience His awesome love and power. All children from ages 3 to 11 are welcome each week.

Worship Team

The Worship Team's main purpose is to glorify God and help people to connect with Him by facilitating musical worship each week. The team is made up of a range of gifted musicians that have a heart to serve God and encourage people to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. We are always on the look out for new people who would like to serve. If you are interested please let us know. The worship team normally meets each week on Thursday night from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm to catch up, practice and pray.

Men's Ministry

Our Men's group meets each month to open God's word, pray and encourage each other. This year we are starting a series called "How to be a Man of God". These are practical sessions and a great way of getting to know other men in the Church. The next event is a mountain bike ride at Bottle Lake on 2 May at 2pm. Events then continue on Tuesday nights at Riccarton Baptist Church from 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm. Supper is provided.
