Parish Dinner

Theme: Movies – Larger than Life!

Our Annual Parish Dinner is back. This year the parish dinner will be held on Saturday, 19 August at 5.30pm and the theme is Movies – Larger than Life. The parish dinner is always a sell out and so much fun!  Do join us for a fantastic night of festivities. Come dressed larger than life; as outlandish and loud and wacky as you can. Imagine if the characters of Star Wars were dressing up for the posh dinner on the last night of The Titanic and then try to out’do’ them. Imagine a “The Walking Dead” and “Barbie” mashup!

If you are interested in hosting a table or attending the dinner, then either email the office (office@karorianglican.org.nz) or put your name down on the clipboard which will be passed around at our service or be at the welcome table in the church foyer

We will need the following volunteers to help organise this night out:

  • Setting up the hall with tables and chairs
  • Decorations
  • Running the Kid’s programme
  • setting up and serving coffee and tea after dinner
  • Clearing up and putting things away after the event

Please email Andrew if you are able to volunteer (andrew@karorianglican.org.nz)



Training Days are for everyone, and it’s our opportunity to share learning and fellowship as a movement whānau.

Bishop Justin will speak at the Plenary Session in Wellington and Palmerston North. This is our first time hearing from Bishop Justin after his Sabbatical. We look forward to hearing what he has to say. More information including details of workshops can be found here.



Archdeacon Gendy Thomson have written to ask for help in running the next training day in Karori. If you are able to, please email Jan at  events@anglicanmovement.nz

Hi parishes,
we are in need of ‘more hands on deck’ for our Karori training day, and putting round an ask for help – if you could please advertise this in your parishes, and also verbally invite people both to attend and to help that’d be wonderful!
Our training day is for everyone, and has great workshops to help us grow as followers of Jesus.  We expect about 350ppl (could be more!) and rely on support of our whole church to help with the day to enable us to keep it at ‘koha’ cost.  You can find out more here https://anglicanmovement.nz/trainingday2023 and click on the button for Wellington

Areas of help that we are needing are:
Set up – Friday night – if you live in or near Karori and could give an an hour or so of your time after work on Friday that would be fantastic!
Set up – Saturday morning – arriving till 9.30 (when coffee/morning tea is available)
Parking wardens (helping people find parks on/off site) – Saturday morning, 8 to 9.45am
Pack down – Saturday afternoon, 3.30 – 5 (or whatever you can give in this time)
Welcomers – Saturday morning 
IT/AV support – for speakers who may need to use technology, but are not so technologically minded – Saturday, 9.30-10 and lunchtime
Helping in the serving team for lunch/morning tea (plating up and putting out food, replenishing as needed, cleaning up) – morning tea = from 8.30am; lunch from 11.30am

If you are able to help serve in any of these ways (and there is sure to be more!) please contact Jan on events@anglicanmovement.nz – we’d rather have more offers and the grace to say “thanks, we don’t need you this time” then no offers!  Thanks so much!

Thanks  Gendy

Sabbatical Leave

Please note that our Vicar, Rev Ian Cook will be away on sabbatical from Monday, 19th June for three months.  Sabbatical leave is an important time to reflect, learn and be renewed for priests.  Ian is visiting Australia and Europe during this period and will be taking part in learning communities, retreats and visiting various parishes in the United Kingdom.  In Ian’s absence, we have a number of people temporarily taking on particular roles. If in doubt about who to talk to about anything, please contact the office in the first instance.
