Loving our neighbours
God calls us all to look beyond ourselves, and our church, and to meet the needs to those around us. Here at KBC we love serving our community and would love to have you give a helping hand too.
We have a few regular community events and some annual activities like the Light Party, Easter Camp and participating in the Christmas parade.

Mainly Music is a fun music group for parents or primary caregivers to enjoy together with their young child.
Each session develops children’s gross and fine motor skills, language, imagination, mathematical and pre-reading skills as well as socializing skills. Our music session goes for 30mins and is followed by a morning tea, playtime and chat time for parents.
Join us on Wednesday 9:30am @ Kumeū Community Centre
We want to make sure Jesus is accessible by everyone. So once a term we run Messy Church for parents who are new to church, or may feel unsure or uncomfortable in our normal Sunday service. It typically includes a meal, various crafts around a particular topic, and a small reading and teaching part for the children. Each Messy Church has a different focus and is run in partnership with St Chad’s church.
Keep a look out on the KBC facebook page for when the next Messy Church is.
