Here’s what’s up ahead for Term 4, 2018

Milestones Service; On Sunday the 25th November a big part of the morning service will be dedicated to a graduation of our group of year 8 young people as the move up to our college ministry.

That Sunday we’ll be celebrating with all of the young people who will be transitioning from, from intermediate to college and from college to life!

We’re going to say some very nice things about them, present them with a gift and pray for them as they embark on the next stage of their journey with us. We’ve planned something pretty special, so we hope that you and your family can be a part of this service.

Graduation Service, Sunday 25th November, 10am at Invercargill Central Baptist Church

Invite to all year 8’s – Ignite Youth Group

We’re heading toward the end of the academic year, and for some that will mean not just moving up a grade, but also moving up a youth group. With that in mind I’d like to invite all our current year 8’s to visit Ignite youth group at any time during term 4.

Ignite is our youth group for college young people from school years 9-13, and takes place every Tuesday night of the school term from 7-9pm in the auditorium at ICBC. You can find out more information about Ignite HERE.
