Rev. Glen Devenish
Glen is husband to Rachel and dad to 4 amazing daughters. He is particularly passionate about discipleship, church planting, and releasing both women and men, girls and boys, to use their gifts and skills for building up the community and glorifying God.
James 1:19 – Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to get angry.
In a world where social media and electronic communications dominate this verse carries great wisdom in guiding our approach.
Warren moved to Cardiff Heights Baptist in 2009, and is husband to Janette and a father of three married children. Warren’s passion is to teach and demonstrate the love of Christ in and through his Church, and then to share this love with his broader community. Warren’s aim is to live his life in a way that will encourage others to also want to live a life for Christ.
John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Information For Connected Youth
Firstly let me say thank you for sending your young people along to Connected Youth for 2020 what a year of challenges and excitement. I pray that over this Christmas period you are able to catch up with family and loved ones in a safe fashion. On behalf of our Youth leaders and Myself we would like to wish you a Blessed Happy and Safe Christmas period as we celebrate the birth of our saviour. For 2021 We will continue to watch closely seeking the best advice from from our Baptist Association and Government Health warnings. We need to conduct youth in a Covid safe system so we will be following our churches Covid-19 Safety plan. To that end we would ask that parents when dropping of Youth would wait outside or in their cars we will have a leader stationed at the double doors of the entry to let our youth know when you arrive. Our leaders will follow social distancing and our games will be designed around that as well. Please if your youth show any symptoms of Covid 19 we would ask you to keep them home thank you. We have met as a team and chatted about what youth group will look like for the next season, so if you have ideas email me at the usual address. Our Church is going to weekly in building services as of the 29th November.

Our Sunday 9:30am and 6:00pm services are held in our Church Auditorium. This is a space for our congregation to join together in communal worship, prayer and bible teaching. We have a Children’s Corner reserved in the Church Auditorium for families, and our Parents Retreat room also adjoins our Auditorium with a window and speaker system to allow families to listen to our services with greater privacy.
Our children enjoy a custom-built Children’s Space for their Sunday morning Children’s Church, and Wednesday PlayTime sessions. This space includes an area for games, craft, a kitchenette and a quiet babies’ room. The Children’s Space also opens onto a playground and large grassed area for outdoor games.
Our Parents Retreat is a sanctuary available on Sundays for families to utilise. This space includes comfortable couches, a range of toys, and an area for parents to feed and change their children. Our Creche is also held in the Parents Retreat during our Sunday Morning service for pre-primary aged children. Parents are able to see into the Church Auditorium from the Parents Retreat through a tinted window, and can choose to listen to the service in the Auditorium through a speaker system. We value our families and prioritise a space reserved for them to care for their children while still feeling part of the service.
Our Church Hall is a wonderful meeting area, where we host Sunday Morning Tea. This space is also utilised for our Youth Group, Messy Church, Craft Group, and other community activities. Our Church Hall and adjoining commercial Kitchen have recently been renovated to allow for sound-proofing, which means there is plenty of space for our young people to play active games in this area!
Adjoining our Children’s Space is a large playgound with swings, a sandpit and a fully enclosed grass area. Children are welcome to use this space, and particularly love to stretch their legs on a Sunday morning after our church service.
Our Ministry Centre is located next to our main church building. This Centre contains our church offices, and a room available for ministry meetings and bible studies.
