Welcome to WCBC:
Our Sunday service is at 10am, with a Chinese service at 10.30am, and an evening service as arranged (see Calendar for dates) at 6.30pm. For more details see our Sunday services page. The speakers are in the Calendar. (In February the evening services will be every week, and will follow the Guardrails course – Avoiding regrets in your life. Here is a preview.)
We are excited! Russell and Juliette Watts are here.
We would like to introduce you to our new pastor, who joined us on February 5th. Pastor Russell was raised on the mission field in Papua New Guinea, the son of South Seas Evangelical Missionaries, Brian and Ruth Watts. He wandered away from God and experimented with other spiritualities until, at age 16, he saw the power the name of Jesus has over the demonic realm. He completed his Bachelor of Theology in 1989 through the Baptist College of NZ. He has been in pastoral ministry for around 23 years, the last 14 of which have been at Ranui Baptist Church in West Auckland (a very multi-cultural church where they expect to see a baptism every week from the pre-Christian community and are seldom disappointed). He has a love for presenting biblical and practical tools for ministry that will equip the body to reflect Christ effectively to the world. He has an excellent marriage with his wife Juliette, three adult children and three grandchildren. Pastor Russell is a very relational person and is heavily involved in serving the church and the local community through one-on-one discipleship, the use of Spiritual gifts, running parenting courses, and as a budget adviser. His passion is to see people connected to God and fulfilling their purposes in life.
