Growing Leaders

Activate Church is committed to growing disciples and growing leaders. We are simplifying the way we do this by strengthening our focus on two education areas for 2022.

Activate Education Night Classes

Activate Education runs night classes each semester to help you discover where you fit in the story of The Bible. You can join in for a free class at any stage during the semester. With fascinating topics each week from our talented teachers, these classes are an excellent way to spend 2hrs on a Monday evening. 

Accreditation is optional. You can participate informally without assignments or take the course as a part of our Level 4 Certificate in Christian Ministry. (Suggested donation appreciated for informal regular attendance $75. Cost for Level 4 paper is $600) 


Located at Vision College, Ruakura A Block, Room 47 from 7pm to 9pm
