9th Dec 1999

Amid all the "hype" surrounding the turn of the millennium, its easy to overlook the fact that this occasion really marks the

passing of 2000 years since the birth of Christ.

The three Eastbourne Churches - Anglican, Catholic and Presbyterian - and local community are joining forces to celebrate the "Bimillennium" in debate, lectures, socialising, theatre, music and plain ordinary fun.

A series of events from September 1999 to June 2000 will allow the Eastbourne and greater Wellington community to reflect on how 2000 years of Christianity have shaped our beliefs and culture - and what they mean to us in New Zealand Aotearoa today.
