Combined Dunedin Churches
Since 2006, Pastors from across the city have been meeting together to pray and seek the peace and prosperity of the city. Under the godly leadership of Bruce Elder, Mark Smith and more recently Peter Cheyne, God has been calling us together in unity.
During that time, we have been holding a combined Easter celebration in the Dunedin town hall which has been a great encouragement.
In 2017 after 5 years of planning and praying, we were blessed to host Ravi Zacharias and his team to the city.
Ravi preached in the Forsyth Barr stadium to a crowd of over 3500. The week-long mission included lunchtime
meetings in the university and meetings with council and business leaders.
In recent years an Acts of Kindness trust has been set up to bless the city through a Light Party, Christmas in the stadium and a Christmas lunch in the town hall.
The founding vision of Dunedin, articulated by Thomas Burns stills fires our common witness to the Lord:
By the grace of God and with His blessing upon us; may we continue in this region, the planting
and cultivating of a well ordered, God-fearing community.
In the power of His risen Son, may we stand as a sample of the Kingdom of Christ which, like a light burning in a dark place, we shall bear no indistinct testimony to the Truth.
