A Ministry and Conference centre in the heart of the Waikato


Whether you want to run your own training event or attend one of ours, the facilities at the ark make for a great space. The Ark is also home to Calvary Chapel Bible Institute (CCBI) NZ, who run 15 week Bible study courses.



The ark is the perfect place away from the hustle and bustle but still close to Hamilton & Cambridge. Whether you are looking to host a gathering of 10 people through to an event for 50 people, get in touch to discuss how we can help.



Being only 15 minutes to Lake Karapiro (for a range of sporting activities & events) and the same to Mystery Creek (Home of the Fieldays), the ark is the perfect place for your group to spend a few restful nights. We cater for groups up to 20.


Where it all began

Originally the home of the Gospel Literature Outreach Bible and Missionary College (GLO), the ark has now undergone an extensive refurbishment in order to serve the community as a Ministry and Conference Centre.


Join us for an evening fellowship with Bible teaching

Sundays from 7pm led by Geoff Usher. Meetings are in the Chapel building at The Ark, 2596 Cambridge Road, Te Awamutu.
