Where and when

The 2018 convention for the NZ Revival Fellowship is being held in Christchurch from the 20th to 22nd of October (Labour Weekend).

The venue for Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st is the YMCA auditorium at 12 Hereford Street in the central city. There will also be activities on the Friday night and Monday morning at our normal meeting venue, the Kendal Avenue School hall, 53 Kendal Avenue, Burnside.

The main convention venue at the YMCA is next to the Botanical Gardens and Museum/Art Centre area.

What's on

Friday night (the 19th) from 7.30pm there will be a meet-and-greet supper at the Kendal Avenue School Hall.

Saturday and Sunday will be at the YMCA auditorium. The programme is as follows:

Morning meeting: 10.30am to 12.00 noon
Afternoon presentations: 3.00pm to 4.00pm
Evening meeting: 7.30pm to 9.00pm

There will be a creche available for children six and under.

The entrance to the Botanical Gardens and museum nearby provides a good opportunity for outreaching over the weekend (or in the lead-up to the rally for those coming earlier).

Other than supper, meals will not be provided, but there are a number of nearby cafés and the city centre has many eating places. (See the link below.) If the weather is fine, the Botanical Gardens across the road are perfect for picnicking. The venue will be open during the day, and there will be an area for eating and fellowship set aside in the hall as well.

Monday morning: For those able to make it, there will be a Monday morning brunch provided at the Kendal School hall at 10.30am.
