Centenary Celebration

Celebrating 100 years of NZBTI, BCNZ, and LAIDLAW COLLEGE

Former students and staff, together with current students and staff, are invited to gather to celebrate the Centenary of the NZ Bible Training Institute, Bible College of New Zealand and now Laidlaw College on 14-15 April 2023.

Over those two days there will be opportunity to worship and reflect on Scripture together, share meals and memories with former classmates and staff, enjoy electives taught by past and present lecturers, tour the new Henderson campus, and take a trip down memory lane in our current campus. Our finale will be a public celebration event at a nearby church as we give thanks to God for his faithfulness over 100 years.
