  • Corporate prayer
  • Opportunity to receive prayer

DISCIPLESHIP SEMINAR: Friday 28 March, 6-9pm (dinner included) and Saturday 29 March, 9am-3pm (lunch included) in the church hall. The Friday night session is aimed at anyone interested in discipleship in general (being discipled or discipling others). The Saturday session is specifically for those interested in discipling others. Cost will be $5 per day to cover food. For more information, please contact Kyle or Jane Horton.

HOSPITALITY LUNCHES: Sunday 30 March. This is such a great way to connect with people across 10am and NightChurch. If you are not signed up and would still like to be a part of it, please speak to Deirdre Willis.

EXPLORING BAPTISM: Have you ever wondered what baptism and church membership are all about? We would love to have you come along to find out a bit more. You don’t have to get baptised at the end of the course, and you can ask any questions you want! Our Senior Pastor, Nicholas Tuohy, will lead the course. 30 March and 6 April, 4-5pm at the KBC Manse. Let Nicholas know if you are interested. There will be a baptism service at both the 10am and NightChurch services on 13 April.

LOVE ABBOTSFORD: Saturday 12 April, 11am-5pm. Love Abbotsford is back for 2014! This is an opportunity for us to show love to the young people and families at the Collingwood Housing Estates on Hoddle Street. We head into the Estates’ grounds and run a fun day of sports (basketball, soccer, frisbee), children’s activities, host a free BBQ and provide live music for the residents and neighbours to enjoy! To make the event happen, we need lots of volunteers from Kew to come along and help out. If you’d like to be involved, sign up on the facebook event (see Kew Baptist Church page or NightChurch group), or speak to Paul Pallot. Let’s try to make this our biggest Love Abbotsford event yet!
