BUILDING WORK UNDERWAY – UPDATE
Site Safety, Parking & Speed Limit
Fences and signage have now been erected around the church grounds and there is 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. You may find that the office car parks are limited during the day as we now have staff from all three offices using this space. And finally, we do ask that you keep to the 5km/phr speed limit when driving on the Karori Anglican grounds.
Fancourt Street – Restricted Parking – Monday to Friday 7am-5pm
Under the traffic management plan, parking is 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.
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.
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.

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.
