YOUTH VACATION VERSES
For every week that there is no youth, a verse will be posted on Fridays on the Youth Instagram page @thecollectiveyouthgroupnz. Three songs will also be posted that fit the topic of the verse that you can listen to instead of the usual Friday and Sunday Youth.
This weeks verse is…
Verse: Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Three Songs about Faith

CHRISTMAS OFFICE CLOSURE – DECEMBER 24 TO JANUARY 25
The Karori Anglican offices will be closed from Saturday the 24th of December to Wednesday the 25th of January.
If you need a priest during office closure times, please contact Reverend Ian Cook on 021 288 2757 or Alison Camplin 021 027 06311
There is ongoing COVID-19 infection in our community, and so we will be pausing the use of the common cup at communion services to keep everyone safe. We also ask that if you are in a “serving” role for a service, please wear a mask.
