Lent 2024


This year for Lent we are focusing on The book of John .  We have devotional material available  “Discover Easter through the Eyes of John”  available for you to study as part of a house church or through your own personal devotion time.  If you would like to join a house church, please let Zoe in the office know zoe@karorianglican.org.nz  and we will make sure you can join a group.  We have a range of times and days of the week available.  House churches are a great way to get to know others and to have rich conversations that deepen our faith.

The devotional booklet will be available at St Mary’s this Sunday for you to collect, it contains daily studies – and is free! We will also load it onto our website.

Ash Wednesday is on the 14th of February – very early this year, so please let us know as soon as possible if you would like to join a group.

We will also have a sign up sheet available in the gathering area if you are not already apart of one.






After popular demand, we have reworked the rules and made it a fairer game!

Meet at 6pm to show off your best cooking skills.

Please contact ben.bormann@karorianglican.org.nz if you have any questions.
