Lent Small Group Studies
The Diocesan Lent small group study begins the first week of March. The study is only six weeks long and we are encouraging as many people as possible to take part this year. There are 11 groups gathering on different days and times. If you haven’t signed up and would like to join a groups contact the email Rev Ian or phone the office.
We also have developed an online survey to help people reflect on where they are in their discipleship journey. This will be made available for all the congregation to access over the next week. We will send out a link to the survey via our email newsletter mailing list. If you would like to receive this link but don’t currently receive the electronic newsletter please contact the church office.
Diocesan Training Day
We all want to see God’s transformation in our local communities and throughout Aotearoa
New Zealand. To equip us for this calling, we are all invited to attend this year’s first Diocesan Training Day. It’s open to everyone, and is our opportunity to gather as one big diocesan family for shared learning and fellowship.
It is for all teams and their leaders, including vestry members, wardens, children’s ministry volunteers, youth workers, those who serve the cups of tea, clergy, those in lay ministry….. you’re all invited to Team Training Day. There is something for everyone. So get together at Samuel Marsden Collegiate, Karori, on Saturday 14 March 2020.

Next Lunch: 5 April. For info contact Nikki and Scott, firstname.lastname@example.org
