WORSHIP THIS WEEKEND
The next announcement of potential level changes is due on Friday but, in consultation with the Anglican Diocese, it has been decided that there will be no gathered worship in person this Sunday.
Instead, a Diocesan service will be livestreamed at 10am on Sunday. Thank you to Billy and Caleb Rowe and the Christ Church Whanganui team for leading this again. The link will be placed on the Anglican Movement website and on Facebook in the next day or two. Bishop Justin will be preaching. This service will also be broadcast on Shine TV at 2.45pm next Sunday (last week’s service being played this coming Sunday at this new time of 2.45pm).
LEVEL 4 – LOCK DOWN
While in Level 4 lock down the parish office will be closed and Heidi will be monitoring emails and the office telephone.
If you need help or would like to talk to someone, please contact these people in the following order:
1. Your House Church leader.
2. Wendy Davidson – if part of the 9am congregation and not in a House Church.
3. Ian Cook – if part of the 10.30am congregation and not in a House Church.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Do you like offering hospitality? Or have a strong organising bone in your body? We are looking for volunteers to form a Te Korōria hospitality event crew. We will be creating and hosting a few events to communicate to the Karori Community what we are building, why, and seeking their financial support. Please let Kate know if you are interested or have questions. We would really love a large team – makes it more fun for everyone!
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.
The heart of Cursillo is a 3-day live-in event that presents a specific method for deepening and living out our Christian faith. Cursillo also provides a strong follow-up and support network of both small groups and wider gatherings for mutual encouragement.
This year the Men’s Cursillo event is being held at St Matthew’s Collegiate School, Masterton from 7-10 October 2021 and the Women’s event is being held at El Rancho, Waikanae from 14-17 October.
If you are interested in attending either of these events, or you would like to know more, please contact Liam Jones firstname.lastname@example.org
BELL TOWER & VESTRY REPAIRS UNDERWAY!
