How to find us

Tena kotou katoa

All of us are trying to make sense of life, to find that ‘thing’ that will help determine how we will live. Here at PBC we have found that our faith in Jesus helps us make sense of life and how we will live.

It doesn’t mean we always get it right or that life is any simpler. In fact, sometimes Jesus asks us to make choices we might otherwise avoid – like loving our neighbours and caring for others.

You are most welcome to come and join us on this journey as we seek to be whanau to each other and as we seek to follow Jesus.

If you would like to know more about why we think Jesus is so important go here

When we journey together, we are stronger.
