Welcome to Papanui Baptist.

Kia ora!

Welcome to the Papanui Baptist Church website. This is a good place to find out a little bit more about us and the different things going on at church. We're a people of God, gathered in Christ by the Holy Spirit, and we'd love to meet you! We're all shapes and sizes, and we come together for worship on Sundays at 10am. We like to catch up over a tea and coffee afterwards. We have children and crèche programmes available during the morning service. On Wednesday nights we have Y@P (Youth at Papanui) at 7pm for the high schoolers. We look forward to saying hello!
