MOVIE FUNDRAISER FOR THE WHEELERS
Pauatahanui Anglican are hosting two movie fundraiser evenings in early November to raise funds for the Wheelers in Kapuna. At Level 2 only 54 tickets per session can be sold, so there will be a double-billing of movies over two nights so that there are 108 possible tickets to sell.
- The first is Juniper a New Zealand film. This will screen at 5pm on Sunday, 7 November at Lighthouse Pauatahanui (doors open at 4:15pm).
- The second option is The Rose Maker. This is a French film and will screen at 8:30pm on Monday, 8 November, also at Lighthouse Pauatahanui (doors open at 7:45pm).
TE KORŌRIA – BUILDING WORK UNDERWAY
SMASH office is now co-located with the Karori Anglican Office. They have their own entrance, around the far side of the building. Our Early Childhood Centre is accessed via steps down beside the office for the duration of the build. As we are operating in a more condensed environment, please expect during any weekday visits to see more activity around the site and shared use of spaces including the kitchen and prayer room in the Office building.
Site Safety and Parking
You will notice fences and signage being erected around the site, there will be reduced access to vehicles along the south side of the Church (where the big grass strip is and the road down to the main road). Please take extra care when driving up or down. There will be walkways constructed to ensure that everyone can make their way around the site safely. Under the traffic management plan, parking will be restricted on Fancourt Street Monday-Friday 7am-5pm. If you do park there and a truck is trying to get through they will tow your car around the corner. Obviously this slows down the building work, so please be mindful of where you park.
We are extremely grateful to individuals and families for their faithful generosity to this project. In the last two and a half years over $700,000 has been gifted by parishioners to this project. Although we have borrowed money in order to get this project started, we believe that God’s plan for us is to be debt free, so do continue to uphold our fundraising and construction efforts in you prayers.
An easy way to support us (if you are on social media), is to like, follow and share our Facebook or Instagram pages.
We continue to fundraise for Te Korōria, and there are many ways you can give or get involved in fundraising, just get in touch with Kate Kate@karorianglican.org.nz if you want to know more.
- Face masks aren’t compulsory but are recommended.
- You can mix with friends and whānau but please be considerate of others and leave enough space for people to keep their distance if they want to.
- On arrival it is mandatory you sign in through the Covid Tracer App or write your details on the Tracing Register provided.
- Communion will be by one element only.
- Morning tea will be served.
- If you are sick please stay at home.

WOULD YOU LIKE A KARORI ANGLICAN CAP?
We are thinking of getting some caps printed and want to know how many of you might be interested in purchasing them before we place an order. We thought they would be great to wear when we are out in the community working on mission projects (like with Karori Kaitiaki – cleaning up the environment) and we will also be super sun smart! The cap will be a dark navy blue with our Karori Anglican logo on the front. The cost will be $20 per cap. Could you please let Heidi know ASAP if you are interested in purchasing one (or more) – we need a minimum of 30 to place an order.
ST MARY’S CHURCH PEWS
Pews are still available to purchase and we have also opened up sales to the general public.
