Who We Are
Where Have We Come From

October 1998


As a church family we give thanks to God for the encouraging leadership of our pastor, Gordon Mill. We look forward to God's guidance as we approach our Annual Meeting. Prayer has ministered a healing in the life of our youth leader, Ruth Howe. May God bless the ministry of Bob Parrant, joining our membership from Waikanae. The death of Mollie Lawton saddened our people. We pray our Lord will make clear the name of our future pastor.

N.Z. Baptist Magazine

Since the first days of the church, Hastings Baptist submitted regular summaries of church life and events to the New Zealand Baptist Magazine.  As part of the centenary archive those updates have been collected and reproduced here.  It is a catalogue of people and moments that have shaped the church’s story.
