Blockhouse Bay Community Church is excited to introduce their new Associate Pastor, Dan Forest who recently arrived from Canada with his wife, Amy, and their daughter, Lucy. Dan and Amy visited New Zealand a few years ago on holiday and fell in love with our beautiful country and are now enjoying being here on a more permanent basis. They’re in the process of setting up home in Blockhouse Bay so you may see them shopping at Countdown, having coffee at one of the local cafes, or enjoying family time at one of our parks.
Known by most people as BBCC, the church has been part of the community since 1974 and is a part of a movement known as the Christian & Missionary Alliance, with churches and ministries in over 80 countries around the world. With its multicultural congregation and friendly, lively atmosphere, BBCC has a growing community focus, offering English conversation classes, Mainly Music for pre-school children, parents and caregivers, pre-marriage preparation for couples, and the fully-licensed early childhood facility, Blockhouse Bay Christian Kindergarten.
Dan will be working alongside the Senior Pastor, Rev. Andrew Marshall, who’s the longest serving Pastor in Blockhouse Bay, having started in 1995. Andrew also serves as the National Director for the Alliance Churches in NZ so with Dan’s arrival the church is hoping to get more involved in our community, offering hope and support to a variety of physical and spiritual needs.
Dan can be contacted on 626-6284 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
