Welcome to Papanui Baptist.

Elders' Announcement

It is with sadness we announce the resignation of our Senior Pastor, Ed Karlsen and his wife Linda.

They have courageously led and journeyed with us through a very significant period in the history of Christchurch. They will be greatly missed.

We are excited for what God has in store for Ed and Linda and ourselves as we all enter this new season.

Their final service and farewell will be held on the 6th December.
