Current Opportunities

Multiplying Disciple Makers

Disciple making is the primary mission of the church. Jesus' last words (Mt 28:19-20; Ac 1:8) are our first work! Yet few believers are mentored over a long period of time in a personal, intentional way, in the manner of Jesus and the disciples.

In November-December 2020, at Caversham Community Church, we will be focusing on the topic of disciple making. The Sunday messages will focus on various aspects of disciple making, to help believers know what to do practically in order to make disciples. We hope this focus on disciple making will result over time in the multiplication of disciple makers in Dunedin.

Would you like to learn more about disciple making? Please contact us and let us know about your interest!

Dunedin Evangelism

Every week our Dunedin Evangelism team shares the gospel on the streets of Dunedin and on the campus of the University of Otago. We've been doing this in Dunedin for two years and have had good success sharing the gospel message with hundreds of Kiwis in a friendly, conversational way.  We use the Gospel Diagram and other methods to try to make the gospel message crystal clear, so that those we meet may understand the eternal choice they must make about Jesus. We encourage you to come along and observe what we do.

Inductive Bible Study

Would you like to be more disciplined in studying and applying God's word? Would you like to meet with other believers every week who are serious about Bible study? If so, check out our inductive Bible studies!

Several inductive Bible studies meet in Timaru and Dunedin, and there's sure to be one that fits your schedule. You can attend in person or online, and there are various studies for adults, women, and youth. Contact us to learn what studies are happening now.

Many of us have been studying the gospel of John since February 2020. You are welcome to join us at any time!

Online Bible School

We invite you to join us via Zoom on Tuesdays at 7pm for Online Bible Study. We are currently studying John 6 and the Order of Salvation. Check out our YouTube channel for past messages.

The Forge Dunedin

The Forge Dunedin is a weekly apologetics programme that takes place every Sunday from 3.30-5pm at a location in or near Dunedin. Christians and non-Christians are invited, though the primary purpose is to equip believers, both adults and youth. Participants are encouraged to purchase and read books that correspond to each course or lecture.

A number of lecturers and discussion leaders will be involved. The plan is for The Forge Dunedin to run continually throughout 2021.
