Chapters are highly-committed groups of people who feel called to serve a community long-term. Chapter members live either with or close to one another, and intentionally seek to create places of hospitality for those around them who are lonely or suffering. Blueprint’s chapters also hold daily rhythms of prayer and hospitality, and seek to live transparently with one another through vulnerability and a willingness to speak openly and honestly.
Commitment to a chapter is a minimum of one year and chapter discernment happens each October/November. If you are a committed Blueprinter and are interested you can contact one of the groups below on the info provided.
Our current chapters are:
Cuba Street Chapter
(230A Cuba St)
A live-in community of ten people who hold open meals, daily evening prayer (6.15pm), and volunteer in a number of ways to befriend those on the margins in Central Wellington.
Lyall Bay Chapter
A live-in community centred around Lyall Bay, with a strong daily commitment to prayer, worship and the renewal of their community through service.
The Wellington Free Store
(corner of Willis + Ghuznee St)
A shipping container conversion which redistributes over 175,000 items of surplus food each year. Outside of their committed core this project needs daily volunteers.
Contact email@example.com to talk about either.
The PETONE Depot
(Jackson St, Petone)
Through the leasing of a commercial space in central Petone this group runs weekly initiatives such as a pay-what-you-want kitchen, swap-meets and vege co-ops. All of this with the desire of making their community a better place to live in.
Blueprint believes strongly that the faith Jesus talked about can’t be done alone.
Things go bad pretty quick in isolation. We encourage Blueprinters to journey deeply with one another, sharing openly and cultivating vulnerability. We think this happens most naturally when people choose to live with or near each other.
Blueprint has grown quickly over the last year, so we are currently in the process of creating life-giving structures to help us look after one-another well while maintaining our organic nature.
