Sunday 1 May 2016
Welcome along to our 10am service at 374 High Street, Motueka.

Our prayer is that you experience the love, hope and joy only Jesus Christ can bring as we gather together and worship Him.
We are Alive!
Pastors Shane and Kathryn Murray


Welcome to Al!ve Church of Christ Motueka.
'Living and loving life through Jesus'

Good morning church and welcome to you all this morning.

On Sunday the 15th of May we will be joining with other Christian churches of Motueka in the town hall for a combined Pentecost service.  In Psalm 133 we read that where there is unity God commands a blessing, hence we are excited that as a church we will be taking a significant role in this Pentecost celebration service.  We hope that you can join us on the day.

So today I thought I would take the opportunity to speak to the significance and meaning of the Pentecost celebration to the modern day church.

Bless you all, church.  We are looking forward to an exciting day in Christ's house.
Pastors Shane and Kathryn Murray
