The Christmas Grotto Experience has been running at our church for sixteen years, so for 2017 the Grotto team will be taking a sabbatical year to rest and re-assess. While this means there will be no Christmas Grotto Experience at South West Baptist Church, we are excited to be taking part in Christmas for the City – a Christmas party experience that caters for people of all ages, from all communities across our city – a celebration of the Christmas story. Christmas for the City is a gift to families and the people of Otautahi from the churches of Christchurch, held at Ara City Campus on December 16, from 4.00pm – 9.00pm. Find out more on the website here. See you there!
