If you're looking for a church home or visiting the city, we'd love to see you.
Seven years after the earthquakes of 2010/2011 which devastated our 1881 building, we will hold the official 'opening ceremony' of our new facilities on 23 - 25 February 2018. There will be food, music, chatting, celebrating, sighing, singing, laughter, tears and prayers.
And a handover. Of the building, and the people, to the good hands of God.
Artists impression of the proposed build, due for completion in December 2017.
Our participation in God’s work at OTBC will be through:
Here now and yet to arrive;
As we missionally engage in our community and beyond; and
Of historic strengths to inform our future.
