The Annual ATI Conference is held in late January at Marton (Arahina), in the North Island.
These conferences are a vital part of the growth and blessing received by the families involved with this ministry. They are also an important connection time for fellowship and building relationships with like-minded people, building friendships over the years.
The speakers are many and varied, with both live and DVD presentation. The challenge and enrichment is always timely and refreshing.

Children’s Programs

Little Fishers 1-4yrs: Morning sessions are in the Arahina Dining Room. Your children will participate in games, crafts, songs, and fun activities. A well-fenced, shaded area for supervised outdoor play will also be available. In the evening quiet children aged four and older are able to sit with you in the main auditorium.

Children’s Institute 5-12yrs: This will run during the morning and afternoon sessions. The programme is designed with a focus on character qualities and scriptural principles using stories, songs, memory verses, crafts and other fun activities.
