Stop! Look! Listen!

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

Spanky Moore will be sharing on the theme of information and how our lives are formed and impacted by our beliefs and actions. There will be times of corporate worship and prayer ministry in all the sessions as well.

Who’s Speaking?

Rev Spanky Moore grew up amongst the green valleys of the Waimea Plains, but now days works as the chaplain at Canterbury University. He received his irreverent nickname from his teenage years playing in a punk band, and it’s stuck ever since. Spanky is passionate about Jesus, mission and discipleship, and specialises in working with that exotic and elusive creature known as “The Young Adult”. He lives with his wife Sara, and two young kids (Edith and Fred) on campus, while struggling to grow asparagus in his spare time.
