If you go to St Martins Church you enter a work site. Currently the first phase of the earthquake strengthening and renovation is under way. This limits the opportunities to meet together and serve outside Sabbath.

Before the building started there was a social group making welcome cards for the new subdivisions in our neighbourhood and mid week Bible studies.

But God can use anyone who is willing to serve. Since the building started we have been blessed to have many new visitors from Adventist TV attending. When a visitor attends they are treated with such love and hospitality is a great gift given to our church to meet those interested people who have already connected with our message on their television at home.

As the building is completed soon please pray for the hospitality ministry of St Martins Church as we continue to serve those whom God sends our way.
