My name is Andre Holtslag.
I have been the Pastor of the Reformed Church of Avondale since July, 2017.
I grew up in Wellington, spent nine years pastoring a congregation in Christchurch, and now live and work and worship in Avondale.
Colossians 1:28 is the theme verse of my ministry. It is my joy and passion to proclaim Jesus Christ. He is the Saviour that we sinners need and the one who gives God’s people meaning, happiness, joy, peace, and hope. I endeavour to proclaim Christ by “admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone mature in Christ.”
It is a privilege to preach and teach the living Word of God, because the Bible tells us who Jesus is and what He came to do, and how to live a life of thankfulness for our salvation in Jesus. If you decide to visit us on a Sunday, please do introduce yourself!
