2017 National Alumni Gathering - Christchurch

We warmly invite Laidlaw College, BTI and BCNZ and Masters Institute alumni to the 2017 National Alumni Gathering being held on our Christchurch campus.


Come and join with other alumni as we reflect on lessons from our past and inspiration for our future, taking a journey through some key moments in the College’s history. We will be thinking about what it has meant to be a community of faith for 95 years and where Laidlaw needs to go to continue serving the cause of the Gospel in Aotearoa New Zealand and beyond over the next 20 and 100 years.

Enjoy relaxed opportunities to catch up with old friends, and meet alumni from other years.
