Calling Auckland North Shore kids and families to a Light Party: Superheroes
A light party is a Halloween alternative for parents who are uncomfortable with their kids
going from door to door “trick or treating”, while others don’t like the death and darkness horror themes associated with the celebration or even the negative influence of “treat us or we’ll trick you” type behaviour…
Now those parents have an Glenfield Auckland alternative in Hillcrest where the Northcote Baptist Church is hosting a Light Party with the theme Superheroes for the community.
Venue: Northcote Baptist Church, 67 Eban Ave, Northcote 5:30 – 8:30 pm, in collaboration with the Glenfield Salvation Army Corps and St Aidan’s Presbyterian Church.
What: A carnival type event, including an inflatable obstacle course, giant catapult, face-painting, disco, muffins, crafts, games and much more!
Come dressed as your favourite superhero, and test your super powers in a variety of challenges (no scarey costumes please).
Entry by donation: all children receive a ticket entitling them to a variety of treats, adults get their own too!
To get your Express Pass, click us an email at email@example.com

UNCHANGING truth IN AN EVER-CHANGING CULTURE
ANZAC WEEKEND – AUCKLAND
24TH – 25TH APRIL 2015
Does God exist? Why is there so much suffering? Is truth relative?
Are science & faith enemies?
Can you give both intellectually and emotionally satisfying answers to these questions? Can you defend the Christian faith in a reasonable and compassionate way? Are you able to represent Christ’s message of hope, rescue and unfathomable love, even in the face of doubt and skepticism?
Join us this ANZAC weekend where a line-up of top international and local speakers will sensitively and skilfully respond to the biggest objections that Christians encounter today – and equip you to live out a confident, yet gracious faith in your everyday life.

This morning at Northcote Baptist Church the clock was turned back 200 years. Dressed as settlers, sailors and Maori and using humour dance and singing, the children of Kid’s Rock retold this special story of the first New Zealand Christmas.
The event being re-enacted by the children described the arrival of Samuel Marsden at the invitation of local Maori and the message of good news he gave on Christmas Day, 1814. Director of Family Ministries at Northcote Baptist Church Janice Norton reminded us that this same message of hope, reconciliation and forgiveness received so openly by many Maori was still important for all of us today.Thanks to all the teachers and children for bringing to life our nation’s story of the coming of the Good News. Te Haranui- Glad tidings of great joy indeed!
