From a Friendly Church to a Church that Makes Friends

Join Mahurangi Presbyterian Church for an interactive workshop about embracing and growing relationships without overload


44 Bertram Street, Warkworth

Friday 16 June 7:15pm - 9:30pm – Hear from thought leader Jacqui Caetano
Saturday 17 June 9:00am – 1:00pm – World Café and workshop so you can take home a plan for practical next steps in your own context.

Loneliness and isolation are the biggest problem of our age and the church family’s biggest opportunity. To show our community the love of Jesus we need to go beyond being ‘nice’ to being people of compassion who truly care. How do we welcome more people into our lives without being overwhelmed? This workshop will provide some big picture perspective and plenty of helpful ideas about how every church can befriend their community – together.

Introducing Jacqui Caetano

Jacqui Caetano is Community Chaplain at Windsor Park Baptist Church, a role she was appointed to because of her remarkable success in making friends and leading people to Jesus in her own neighbourhood. She will be sharing her story and her learnings about community outreach.

Jacqui originally trained as a teacher and nutritionist and in recent years has done the Alphacrucis Chaplaincy course and acquired a post-graduate diploma in Applied Theology through Carey College.
