BRICK FUNDRAISER EXTENDED UNTIL 30 JUNE!
Our brick fundraiser has been extended until 30 June and we have a range of different prices to suit you and/or your company! Engrave your brick(s) with a personal message e.g. a name, your business logo, or maybe a dedication! Options from $250. To make a donation go to: karorianglican.org.nz
COMPETITION TIME! – WHO CAN GET THE MOST PEOPLE TO DONATE A BRICK?
WIN A VOUCHER FOR DINNER AT LOGAN BROWN
Selling all 500 bricks raises $100,000. We have 457 bricks left to sell so need help in asking people to donate one. You can ask in-person – pick up some brochures from Church or just direct people to the Karori Anglican website to complete a purchase. If you are on Facebook you can share the opportunity to donate “post” onto your own profile. It’s really easy, and with a personal note above the facebook post, it really does result in bricks being donated. People can have names or business names/logos engraved on the bricks. Some people are buying bricks to commemorate loved ones, which is a great idea. The bricks will be paved outside Te Korōria and the counselling rooms.
Don’t forget to let Kate know which of your friends/relatives donated a brick so we can keep track of the winner. More information can be found at karorianglican.org.nz or contact Kate Harvey-Green firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Sunday, marmalade will be sold in the gathering area after both the 9am and 10.30am services. The marmalade is made with organic seville oranges kindly donated by Joyce Foster.
$5 per jar (cash only please) and proceeds will be donated to Te Korōria,

WE HAVE NEW RECYCLING BINS!
As part of our passion for integrating care of creation and sustainability into life and activities in our church and community, we are excited to reveal our new recycling bins for St Mary’s gathering area and the church office. We now have four separate bins for Glass, Landfill, Paper and Plastics and Cans. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to help keep our community and country clean! When using these bins it is very important that rubbish is put in the correct bins and that any recycling items, ie. plastics, cans and bottles, are thoroughly washed and dried before throwing them away. We thank you in advance for your continued support in keeping our church community eco-friendly! You will see these bins in St Mary’s as well as in the offices, SMASH, and the Early Childhood Centre thanks to a grant from Wellington City Council.
If you have any pastoral care concerns or queries please contact Ian Cook email@example.com
