Old Railway Road Land
As a church, Kumeu Baptist purchased a plot of land on Old Railway Road many years back with the intention of moving up there to a brand new facility. This would allow us to grow as a church to reflect our growing area. Our current facilities were no longer meeting our needs as a church and God was calling us to step out and to build on our Old Railway Road property. God also led us to partner with Tau Te Arohanoa Akoranga (Grace Learning School) in whakawhanaungatanga to build a shared complex, that will house both church and school together. They are a bicultural, bilingual, biblical school and we are excited about doing life side by side with them. In May 2018, Resource Consent was granted for the build and we are now moving forward with our build one step at a time.
Sale of Access Road Building
One of the steps we discerned to take as a church was to sell our old facility at 27 Access Road before our new facility was ready. This was something God led us to as a fellowship, in order that it could help finance our new build and also help us to step out in faith. We left our old premises at the end of June 2018.
