Serving Families & Children across Generations

Quick links

Our whānau, however, they may look, have a purpose – to help each other to be strong and effective members of the Whānau of God. In a less than perfect world, our families should bring hope of life and a better future through Jesus Christ. As we journey together, our whānau should grow faith as they support each other to know and trust in Jesus. As our world becomes increasingly isolated, our families should live love that supports, enriches and nourishes each other. Whānau and Children’s ministries are all about helping our immediate family, extended family and our spiritual / church family to be all God created them to be. Everything has a single purpose; to be together with Jesus and each other for eternity in a world made new.
