GLOBAL CONNECT – Helen Futter
God loves the world and so connecting with the world and spreading His Love is a core part of Connect Baptist’s mission. We have a small team at Connect who aim to equip the church to participate in global and cross cultural mission.
One Sunday a month we have a special time of focus on overseas mission during the service.
WORSHIP MINISTRY – Henry Pao’o
Kia Orana. My name is Henz and I oversee the music/Praise & Worship at Connect.
Together with other musically talented members of the Praise & Worship team, our role is to lead the congregation of Connect into the presence of God through expressive Worship on Sunday mornings. But wait! There’s more. The Praise & Worship team also lead Christmas Carols for our Christmas in the Carpark event. NOT JINGLE BELLZ.
LIFE GROUP MINISTRY – Josh Irving
Life groups are one way that our church seeks to foster “life-on-life”community through the ups and downs of every week. Whenever our groups gather to chat and to pray for one another, to soak in God’s word and relate together in light of it, we believe that the risen Christ dwells in our midst. This means that – more than just becoming good friends – we are encouraging one another to be friends of God! If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
CBC Youth – Lead by Damein Limmer
CBC Youth ministry is a ministry for high school aged youth of this church and beyond.
We have a weekly youth group program on Friday nights here at church in the Youth room from 7:30pm-9:30pm, as well as many awesome camps and events throughout the year.
In this ministry we seek to grow in faith, learn about our amazing God, connect with each other and God, and have fun.
All Youth are welcome and all are loved and belong.
Children’s Ministry – Paula Pio
Kidz Zone is our Sunday morning ministry for children ages 3 – 12 years. Our goal is to support our children and families in growing a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. We do this through sharing stories from the bible and looking at how they apply to us today. We worship together through songs, games, crafts, and prayer.
For further information you can contact Paula through the church office.
