Extravagant Christmas Is Coming To You In 2018

Since 2005 RISK Church has touched hundreds of lives with a beautiful ‘Extravagant Christmas’ dinner, entertainment and Christmas gifts at our Evans Street venue.

This year however, we are taking this same EC - the beautiful aroha, the lavish gifts and the yummy kai - out into homes.

We know that times are tough. For many the budget just isn’t stretching to cover the rising costs of food, let alone gifts that we all long to give in order to make Christmas a special time.

So our hope is to connect with people and families genuinely in need. We want to bless them with an Aroha Kai Kete in order to help them enjoy a memorable Christmas in their own homes.

Each Aroha Kai Kete is made up of a food hamper, gifts and every registered person is in the draw to win quality spot prizes such as technology and appliances.

We love our Stokes Valley community and want to do everything we can to bless them and connect them with their loving Heavenly Father through Jesus. 

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Are you one of these people or families who needs some encouragement this Christmas? Or do you know someone you’d like to nominate to receive an EC Aroha Kai Kete? If so, please register on Saturday, 24th November between 3pm & 5pm at RISK Church, 23 Evans Street.

Please note: Limited numbers available. Recipients must agree to a delivery time on 23 or 24 December.

HUGE thanks to all those of you who give! Your generosity makes this special event possible. Over the years of running EC we've also developed strong connections with the business sector who give so generously. We deeply value these relationships.

And HUGE thanks to God. Every year He inspires us with the theme and ensures the projected budget is achieved.
