UK evangelist Mike Pilavachi is joining our Ministry Conference Family Camp at Rātana to kick us off on Sunday 15th April, and everyone in the diocese is welcome. Mike will be leading a time of worship, ministry and teaching, and this time is open to anyone who wishes to attend, whether they are in a ministry role in your parish or not.
Please spread the word amongst our people, and encourage them to invite others along also. If you have had the privilege of hearing Mike speak at New Wine and other events, you will know that he is an engaging and motivating speaker, and both new and longer term Christians have experienced a Spirit-filled boost from Mike’s teaching.
This event will be held at Rātana Pā as part of Ministry Leaders' Family Camp. As you drive into Rātana village on Rātana Road, take the second right onto Tairawhiti Street, which then turns into Taihauauru Street.
At the corner of Taihauauru and Wharekauri Streets, you'll notice the marae atea (forecourt) - a grassed area used for welcoming manuhiri (guests). Just behind the marae atea is a large building, containing the wharenui (meeting house) where the event will be held.
After parking your vehicles, proceed up Wharekauri Street and use the concrete verandah to access the wharenui.
