Last week the vicar and wardens sent out a letter about the current finances of Karori Anglican. Thank you so much to those who have already responded and either made a one off donation or increased their regular giving – it is so encouraging – thank you!  If you haven’t had a chance yet to read and pray and consider if you can help, here is the link to the letter LINK

On the screens in the gathering area there will be more information this weekend as to our history of generous giving.
