The Picnic


The Picnic

Please note: The Picnic will replace all usual gatherings this Sunday.

We're taking church outdoors this week with Curate's annual combined picnic, featuring:

- Outdoor worship with Curate Music
- Bouncy castles
- Ice cream
- Candy floss
- Free sausages

From 4pm - 6pm | Sun 4th Feb | 698E Whakamaramara Rd


We’re taking church outdoors this Sunday with the first ever Curate combined family picnic! The Picnic will be an amazing opportunity to hang out with our extended Curate family and worship together under a beautiful blue sky. Featuring free sausages, candy floss, bouncy castles, and outdoor worship from Curate Music, The Picnic is not to be missed!


Getting There
We will have signage and our legendary car parking team directing traffic from the main road. It’s approximately 2km from Whakamarama School. There is plenty of parking onsite at The Picnic, but we would love it if everyone can bring a full car load of people. If you have space in your car to give someone a lift please leave a comment on the FB event page.

What to Bring
Picnic dinner, blanket/rug, umbrella for shade, sunblock and your friends and family.

We have the amazing opportunity to baptise people in the river this Sunday at The Picnic. Please email if you would like to take your next step and get baptised this week.

We are looking forward to seeing all the families of Curate come together on Sunday at The Picnic. While there will be a bunch of activities for the kids at The Picnic, there will be no dedicated kids programme or supervision. Parents and caregivers; please keep an eye on your kids at all times.


See you on Sunday at The Picnic!

Kingdom Builders








Kingdom Builders








Kingdom Builders is a community of people within Curate Church who are committed to being generous beyond their tithes and offerings for the purpose of resourcing Curate's vision. We have two events per year that allow you to meet other like-minded generous people, be equipped and inspired by great speakers, and hear about the vision of Curate and how you can resource it.

As a Kingdom Builder, you make an annual commitment towards our annual offering using the Kingdom Builder commitment form.

We believe there is something special about Curate and its ability to create communities and conversations that lead people towards life in Jesus. We want to see five Curate locations, reaching 5000 people by 2023. We want to take our message and music global using media platforms, and we want to see 10% of our budgets given away to areas of need both locally and globally.

You can play a significant part in seeing countless lives transformed and needs met. It’s not about the amount we give but about the heart we give it with. We believe being a part of Kingdom Builders will not only help build the Kingdom of God, but will also help build your life.
