LATEST TE KORŌRIA UPDATE
Here are some photos from inside! You can see that all the windows and doors are in (just two to go), and in the counseling rooms the gib is going up on the walls and the ceiling (see the picture above). Next steps are putting the wiring into Te Korōria, and starting to do the exterior cladding. Te Korōria now has its own website, tekororia.org.nz! This currently contains very basic information, but will be fully updated when we launch in April 2023.
Donations continue to come in for the fit out, we have now received $65,000 in pledges and donations towards this which is fantastic. Keep those little orange booklets coming in, or just email Kate if you would like to support Te Korōria in this way. Maybe consider “gifting” a fit out item to someone for Christmas? Instead of hunting for a present for someone, you can donate an item to Te Korōria on their behalf, and we can give you a gift certificate to give instead. Just get in touch with Kate to find out more.
Thank you to everyone who helps at our services, from welcoming to morning tea, many hands make light work! Our rosters until the end of February are now available through infoodle, or you can see them posted at the notice board in the gathering area. There have been a few minor changes since they were emailed out last week, so please double check when you are on.

INFOODLE – OUR DATABASE AND APP
Infoodle is the database we use at Karori Anglican for everything from contact details, to rosters to donation records. If you wish, you can log in and access infoodle which enables you to view your roster, mark when you are away, and view contact phone numbers to congregation members who have agreed to have their numbers “visible”.
If you need a login, either because you have never had one, or if you have forgotten yours, then please let Kate know and it can be reset.
We also have an App that works on any smartphone which gives you quick access to your roster, the newsletter, our website, and the directory. You download the app from either the app store or google play depending on your device type. Instructions on how to get the app up and running can be found here.
