Welcome to the Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside

Being a Rotarian is a challenging, stimulating and rewarding experience.

The Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside has been supporting the Bishopdale Burnside and Greater Christchurch community for over 40 years with a number of projects and fundraising events.

We welcome enquiries from interested persons who wish to learn more about Rotary.

We also welcome visiting Rotarians to our meetings.

Members gathered for fellowship at our venue which is the Papanui Returned Services Association rooms at about 5.30 pm each Monday for a 6 pm meal.

After a dinner a short business section commences at 6.30 pm which is generally followed by a speaker who addresses the club on a topic of interest to Rotary.

Meetings generally finish at 7.30 pm.

The Rotary Club of Bishopdale Burnside extend our deepest sympathy to those families and friends who were killed or injured in today’s horrific terrorist attacks in Christchurch.

To our members and friends who waited anxiously for the lockdown to be lifted at our schools and other facilities throughout Christchurch earlier this evening you will be greatly relieved to be reunited with your loved ones.

This is not normal in Christchurch or New Zealand.

What is normal is different faiths and nationalities working together to understand their religious backgrounds. The photo with this blog is from an interfaith panel discussion facilitated by our Rotary Club in April 2006. This is the norm.
