Student Communication -


It’s lecture time again!

We know it wasn’t a break, but we missed our regular lecture schedule over the Study and Reading weeks, and we missed seeing many of you in classroms and on Zoom. So, we are looking forward to getting back to our normal schedule, and hopefully you are too.

You've been hard at work, crushing those assessments, reading, and studying. Hopefully you did a bit of resting too. We are back to class next Monday, 6 May! Oh, and community lunches, and karakia! Woo hoo!

Psalms Conference Student Rates—save $50!

There are still some student-rate tickets for the Psalms conference, but not many!

Come along to our Psalms Conference, a three-day participatory event in July, and explore how the Bible’s songbook and prayerbook can inspire Christian worship and shape God’s people here in Aotearoa.

There is also a one-day access ticket if you can’t make the whole conference. The access code for the students discount is ONEDAY, but get your one-day ticket here or click one-day button below to go straight to the promo page.

Carey Open Events

Tuesday, 28 May from 9am-3pm is Open Day at Carey. If you are on campus, we encourage you to spread a little Carey kindness to anyone attending.

Have a mate
register for Open Day so they can know how cool it is to study here too!

Also, Online Open Evening is Tuesday, 4 June from 7.30-8.45pm. You can tell your friends about our
Online Open Evening too, ya know?

Karakia is back!

Karakia is back next week with a guest speaker, Helen Brereton, sharing with us. If you don’t know Helen, she’s amazing, so you won’t want to miss it! 11.15am on Tuesday in the chapel.

Karakia recordings

Don’t forget, we’ve got all the recordings from the first half of the semester, so check them out.

Carey Alumni Reunion

We mentioned the reunion for those who studied at Carey during the 1970s? Former Carey students will be getting together, and it’s happening this weekend!

What’s really cool is that next Monday, 6 May, these past alumni have been invited to join in the first half of lectures on-site. Also, they are joining for lunch with current students. So, if you are on-site Monday, 6 May, instead of Coffee, Cake, and Convo at 12.15, we will be having a free shared lunch with the 1970s Reunion crew. It’ll be a great time to meet some of them, hear their stories, and be encouraged by what God has done in their lives since they studied here.

So, come along, welcome your extended Carey whānau, and enjoy a mean feed.

Lunch(es)—that’s right, there’s two!

With the alumni reunion on Monday, we’re having a shared lunch of butter chicken with the 1970s folks! But, we are also having our Tuesday lunch as a Carey whānau, and it’s gonna be lasagna. What a week ahead!

But, in case it wasn’t clear, if you’re here on Monday, you don’t need to bring your lunch this week.

The Library

As you’re back to the normal semester routine, stop by the library or email the team. They’re stupendous and keen to help!

Library hours:
Monday to Thursday 8.30am-6.30pm
Friday 9am-5pm
Saturday 10am-12.30pm

Help needed—and you get paid!

Hey Carey students! I’m Charis from the Baptist National Support Centre upstairs. In case you missed it on your Facebook group, we’re shooting footage for a 30-second Baptist NZ app promo on Thursday, 9 May from 10.30am-12.30pm.

We need volunteers for the ‘church notices scene’ and ‘after-church coffee scene’ we’re filming in the Carey chapel. Pretend to be at church, and get a $30 Prezzy card. There will be lots of downtime over the 2 hours for multitasking. If you can volunteer, please email me at with your name, age, and gender. Also, feel free to send any questions you have. Thank you!
