Gift of Groceries
Gift of Groceries
Our annual Gift of Groceries project is happening Wednesday 5th & Thursday 6th December!
In partnership with New World Mount Maunganui and Kiwi Larder, we will be donating 1,200 packs of Christmas goodness throughout the Bay of Plenty area through over 30 local organisations, including Homes of Hope, Oranga Tamariki, Tauranga Hospital, Plunket, NZ Police, Tamariki Ora, and Waipuna Hospice, to ensure they get to people in genuine need.
We know that Christmas can be a really hard time for many people both financially and mentally, so join with us as we spread some Christmas cheer and hope to those in our community who are facing less fortunate or difficult circumstances.
Each pack costs $40 (but contains $60 worth of goods) - so with 1,200 of them, we are looking for a lot of generous people and businesses to partner with us financially! You can make donations online any time using the methods below, or with cash/EFTPOS at our Sunday gatherings.
Online Banking: 12-3194-0001135-53 (Reference “Gift of Groceries” and your name)
PushPay: Click here or search "Curate" in the app.
If you are part of a business (or you have a business contact) that may be interested in donating funds to the Gift of Groceries initiative, please click here for our funding request letter, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Many hands make light work, and who wouldn’t want to be part of something that will have such a positive impact on our community?! These days will take place at Curate, 37 Newton Street, Mount Maunganui.
Wednesday 5th December 11am-8.30pm (non-perishable items)
Thursday 6th December 8am-12pm (fresh produce)
Thursday 6th December 12.30pm-4pm
If you would like to join us (even just for a couple of hours!).
If you have a neighbour/friend/contact who is facing difficult circumstances, you can nominate them to receive a Gift of Groceries pack! In order to avoid double-ups, we need a few details about the recipient so we can call them to ensure they aren’t already being allocated a pack through a charity. Click here to nominate someone!
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.
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. Anyone can become a Kingdom Builder and we believe that you being a part of this will not only help build the Kingdom of God, but will also help build your life.
As a Kingdom Builder, you make an annual pledge towards our annual Vision Offering by using the Kingdom Builder commitment form on the back page of the Kingdom Builders handout, or by clicking here.

We have been humbled by what God has done in and through Curate thus far, and it makes us even more full of faith and excitement about what He will do in the future.
Jesus has saved us and given us an abundant and eternal life. He has left us with a mission to reach our neighbours, streets, communities, cities, nation and world with His love. It’s His mission and it’s for His glory.
To serve as the Lead Pastors of Curate is one of the greatest privileges of our lives and every day is a reminder that great churches are not built on the gifts and talents of a few, but on the sacrifice of many. We are always humbled that people would pray, serve and give to see God’s church thrive and be all it can be and we know that a great eternal reward awaits us in the future.
Thank you for considering to be a Curate Kingdom Builder in 2019.
Much love and blessings,
Joel and Katie
