Happy New Year  – Welcome to 2019

We hope you had safe and happy holidays with friends and family and a chance to relax and enjoy this great weather.

The Committee and Area groups have been planning with lots of enthusiasm and great ideas, a variety of events for 2019.  We hope you will share our enthusiasm for all the activities being arranged.
We would also like to encourage you to become involved in the Area groups. These are intended to link you more closely with people in your local area, to build friendships, encourage and support people close to where you live.

Already this year Blair and his team have had a very busy and fun BBQ at Bunnings New Lynn with another one planned for Mt Roskill Bunnings on the 23rd February.

In mid January it was with sadness we farewelled Jason Fraser.
While sad, we also rejoiced and reflected on Jason’s enthusiasm for God, and for meeting people. Jason was an enthusiastic supporter of  Elevate and CFFD activities,
We celebrate, knowing that Jason is living freely now with our Lord in Heaven.
