A Note from Zoё

I have accepted an offer of employment at the National Library of New Zealand. My last day at Karori Anglican will be Friday 6 December. Thank you for the many opportunities I have had with Karori Anglican. During my time here I have seen and heard many stories of people finding their feet while serving and/or working at Karori Anglican, and I’m honoured to say that the same is true for me. I pray that this legacy will continue in years to come.

Expressions of interest for the position of Ministry Assistant, Administration are welcome. Please see Ian or Kate for more information.

Karori Foodbank

The foodbank is run by the five churches in Karori and it needs your help. We need volunteers who can work between 10 and 11.30 am on Tuesdays and/or Fridays. The work consists of packing food parcels. No heavy lifting required. Volunteers are rostered over a 12-week period and might be required 2 or 3 times in that period. For information please contact Angela 4766963 or pachyderm@werren.nz.
