Karori Anglican Weekend Together
12-14 March at Palm Grove Christian Camp, Paraparaumu
Grab your registration form and drop it back to us or take a photo of it and email it to Heidi firstname.lastname@example.org
Please let Heidi know if you would like to stay in a nearby house – and attend the camp each day – we get that bunk beds are not for everyone!
A huge thanks to everyone involved in last weekend’s Fair and Pet Show, those who baked, donated and those who invited people along. We had a great time celebrating the start of the year and it was wonderful to see so many other families from the community joining us with their furry friends.
Congratulations to Arnold Hart for guessing the right number of sweets in the jar!
Missio Dei – 6 March, Samuel Marsden Collegiate, Karori
As per usual the Anglican Diocese training events do not happen on their own but require a small army of people to muck in and help everything go smoothly. If you can help at the Training Day on 6 March, please sign up on the clipboard this Sunday, or let Heidi know by email: email@example.com
GODZONE – KIDS REGISTRATION
Our Kids Ministry GodZone has kicked off!!!
Kate has emailed registration forms to parents and hardcopies are also available in the church foyer. If you have not yet filled out a form for your child, please do so.
Here’s a link to the online form.
MARRIAGE COURSE – SAVE THE DATE
We are running a six week marriage course starting on Tuesday, 4 May. This course will be suitable for those who have been married for years to those about to be married. Register your interest to attend by emailing Heidi in the office firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information on this course please contact
Ian Cook directly.
This is a new group we are starting this year for our youth in (school) years 9 & 10. Co-ordinated by Kat Hartley, this group will meet during the 10.30am service. It will be a space to explore their beliefs, be discipled, hang out together and provide opportunity to consider baptism/renewal of baptismal vows, or confirmation. If you would like to know more, please get in touch with Kat by email email@example.com or the office.
