Ilam Baptist Church is part of the Baptist Union of Churches in New Zealand, and meets in the suburb of Ilam in Christchurch. There are about 100 adult Ilamites and over 70 teens and children, who live all over the city. There is also a youth group for secondary school students called NQA (not quite angels). On Sundays we gather at 10:30am at the Ilam School hall on Ilam Road, next to Canterbury University. Ilam Baptist Church, as a faith community, seeks to influence people inside and outside the church to love God and follow Christ.
