Our families lunch is THIS Sunday 5th May in the Kōwhai room from 12pm. Please bring food and drink to share, we look forward to seeing you there!


Thanks for your responses (and ongoing prayer) for funding Karori Anglican’s work and mission.

We know that everyone’s circumstances are unique and commend your giving to prayerful consideration. Our goal is to increase our giving by 20% – please consider your regular donations as to whether you are able to increase your giving to help us meet this goal. A huge thankyou to those 15 people / families who have increased their giving in the last 4 weeks. Also to the three youth / students who have also started giving with several other new givers in the church.

Thank you so much for this, we appreciate you all very much.
