IMPROVING BACK ENTRY ACCESS TO

It’s exciting to see work already underway to improve our back access to our halls, ECEC and SMASH. Please only use the front access way (from Karori Road) whilst this work is in progress.
WHEELS UP WHEELERS!
The Wheeler family flew out to Papua New Guinea on Monday to start their mission at Kapuna. Please hold the family in prayer as they settle into their new surroundings and lifestyle.
MANA MINISTRIES – MEALS REQUIRED
We only have a few meals left in our Mana Ministries freezer and we need your help to replenish our stock! You can pick up meal containers and lids from either the church foyer or the parish office. Meals can be dropped in to Heidi in the office, during the week.
Thank you for your kindness!

Missio Dei – 6 March, Samuel Marsden Collegiate, Karori

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.
