ANNOUNCING THE NAME OF OUR NEW BUILD – TE KORŌRIA
We are excited to announce that our new build will be named “Te Korōria”. This is a Te Reo word, meaning The Glory. We consulted staff and our congregation (where we received very positive feedback), and following approval from Taranaki Whānui, Vestry has approved “Te Korōria” as our building name. We will be developing a logo and a tag line (in English) that helps people know what is available in the building. We expect this to be developed by March 2021. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback during our two rounds of consultation. We are excited to move another step closer to completing this building which will enable us to share God’s Glory more and more with our community.
New video and design “shots” of the building are available to view and will be shown at church this Sunday
