Home Christchurch Branch of the NZCFS

Christchurch Branch of the NZCFS

Christchurch branch has a very active membership base and we meet on the last Thursday of the month at the Rewi Alley Education and Cultural Centre Wairarapa Building, Oak Drive (off Parkstone Ave), Canterbury University Dovedale Campus, Ilam, unless otherwise notified (winter meetings on Sunday afternoons)

We have a varied range of speakers at our meetings. Past speakers have included the Mayors of Christchurch and Ashburton as well as the Chinese Consul Generals from Christchurch.

We have 2 annual banquets every year for Chinese New Year and China National day in October.

Throughout the year we have other events such as Yum Cha lunches and also some student activities as well.

If you would like to know more about our branch feel free to come along to some of our meetings and meet our friendly members. We always end our meetings with Tea, Coffee and a biscuit as this gives everyone a chance to mix and mingle and get to know each other. Alternatively you can email us at [email protected] and we will get back to you or submit your details to receive our monthly newsletter by email.
