Lead the way

As people get connected to others within the church we look to encourage those who show a servant heart – along with gifting and maturity – to consider their involvement in further leadership roles.

Children and Youth


Rally@412 is a place where children from our church and from the wider community gather to burn off energy – with creative programmes and solid spiritual input throughout the year. It is for children 7 to 12 years.

Sunday School

Each Sunday a children’s programme is provided for our children while the sermon is given in the worship service. It’s a time for our children to make friends as they engage in a Bible lesson.

Youth Bible Studies

Friendship and spiritual growth are both vitally important to the development of our youth. The Gathering is for years 9 upward students (ages 13+). They gather every week for a fun and interactive Bible Study.

MY – Manawaru Youth

Our teenagers regularly get together to hang out and enjoy fun programmes together. There’s a wide variety of activities that take them all over the countryside.

Adult Life Groups

Life Groups are an important part of life at MBC where support, encouragement, and friendship are cultivated among our adults. Each group gathers for spiritual enrichment and friendship.

Simply ask about what Life Groups are available and we can put you in contact with the one most appropriate for you.
