To know and love Jesus more

We have an amazing line up of speakers that will share each week on topics ranging from Bible basics, to New Zealand Christian history and even how to manage your money well. The aim is that you come away from these five months with a solid grip on who you are as a child of God, to know and love Jesus more and be ready to serve the world around you in the best way you can.
