'Traditional and not' church opens in Waitati

by Peter Dowden


A new church group has begun gathering for worship on a regular basis

in Waitati. 'Fernhill Church in Waitati' is an offshoot of the

Fernhill Church in Carroll St, Dunedin, in the downtown suburb of



The church had been meeting every second week in Waitati for a month

or so, and had decided to go monthly on an ongoing basis, church

coordinator and preacher Ray Rombouts told 'Blueskin News'.


"We are not a traditional church but we're traditional in our belief,"

Ray said. "There's the odd guitar and we clap a bit now and then."


Ray travels out from Mosgiel to lead the Waitati services under the

guidance of pastor Mark Buckle, of Dunedin.


Fernhill Church at Waitati meets in the Waitati Hall on the first

Sunday of each month, starting June 6, at 2:30 pm.
