Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By RHI­AN­NON McCON­NELL

Up to 3000 people are ex­pected to at­tend a Welling­ton church’s two Porirua ser­vices this weekend.

Arise Church Welling­ton cam­pus man­ager Jes­sica Fowler said it was the first time Arise would have church in Porirua.

‘‘Usu­ally our ser­vices are in the Welling­ton CBD, but hav­ing our nor­mal venues booked out for this par­tic­u­lar weekend has pro­vided a great op­por­tu­nity for us to come to Porirua for the day,’’ she said.

‘‘We have had this in the pipe­line for a while now, but only an­nounced it to the church a cou­ple of weeks ago.’’

Mrs Fowler said there were no plans for a per­ma­nent ser­vice in Porirua.

‘‘How­ever, we run buses to and from Porirua to our youth pro­grammes on a Fri­day night and to church on Sun­day.’’

She said the church was treat­ing it as a spe­cial day and had booked out the swim­ming pool for af­ter­wards.

The ser­vices will be held on Sun­day at 10am and 5pm at the Te Rau­paraha Arena.

Arise church also runs a Break­fast Club pro­gramme at Windley School in Can­nons Creek.
