School holidays are here!
Our kids church will not be operating during the holidays but there will be some colouring in sheets you can grab to keep the kids entertained during the sermon time. This is a great opportunity to teach our children how to worship together with their whole church family. We encourage you to explain whats going on on in the service to your kids so that they can learn and participate more. And yes... we expect the service to be a bit rowdier - that's part of being a family :)
The Vigers are coming!!
Sarah Vigers, our new Kids and Families Lead, and her husband Brad and kids Daniel, Eva and Amy are leaving the UK on the 6th of July and will be undergoing quarantine before joining us for Term 3. We are so excited! We invite you to share any ideas on how to make the Vigers family feel welcome when they arrive :)
To welcome the Vigers we have two events:
Shared Morning Tea
Please bring something to share for our morning tea after church in the Lounge on the 26th!
Kids Church Families Party
All kids church families are warmly invited to our English themed families event at the Stewarts on 25 July 4-7 look for address in our church directory. Bring a plate to share!
Prayer focus this Month: Bible Society
About the Bible Society:
In some parts of the world, the Bible is difficult to access or is simply unavailable. In New Zealand, the Bible is readily available but many people are unaware of its value.
We work in New Zealand and in partnership with Bible Societies around the world to address this. We take the Bible and find ways to translate and distribute it, create digital formats, advocate for its place in society, and help people relate to and make sense of it in their everyday lives.
All our efforts are driven by one conviction: we believe that when people engage with the Bible, lives can change–for good.
