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.

Some of the things we are looking forward to most about catching up over Centenary weekend is hearing from one another, celebrating the past but also getting a sense of where God is leading us into the future. It is wonderful to be able to offer the opportunity to hear from some of our alumni, current staff and affiliates on a range of topics. See here for our speakers and topics.
