Our Wellington Conference is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, 2-3 October. There is some uncertainty about the length of our current lockdown, and the consequent availability of our two Auckland speakers, but at this stage we are proceeding as usual, and would invite as many as possible to join us.

The subject for the Bible Study will be “Rejoice“, a very necessary encouragement in view of the swirling clouds of Covid-19 Delta infection surrounding us. But the amazing response of Habakkuk after the grim view from his Watchtower may be very relevant. (See the first scripture reference!)

In our Bible Study we will be referring to these Scriptures:

  • Rejoicing Looking Back
    • In spite of disaster (Habakkuk 3:17-18)
    • In appreciation of salvation (Acts 8:35-39)
  • Rejoicing in the Present Day
    • In view of Christ’s resurrection (Matthew 28:9-10)
    • In everyday Christian living (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
  • Rejoicing Looking Forward
    • In expectation of heaven (Luke 6:20-23)
    • In anticipation of union with Christ (Revelation 19:6-9)

An online application form follows. We would appreciate responses by Wed 22 Sep 2021 so we can make suitable accommodation and food arrangements. Alternatively, registration is also possible by email, snail-mail or phone. Note that the conference closes with midday dinner together on the Lord’s Day.
