Hard to believe that we begin May in the next day or so.  The year is just flying by.  On the 8th April at the A.G.M. of St Augustine’s we elected our Vestry Leadership.  The following people elected give us a good representation across our three Services as well as a few older heads to go with younger ones.  Those elected were Alan Pattrick ({Peoples Warden) Claire Bickers (Bishop’s warden) Richard Howe, Alexa McPherson James Johnson, Desiree Williamson, Duncan Hume, Kevin McDonnell and Rob Lay.  Our Vestry Leadership would appreciate your ongoing prayers.

We have yet to get the final go ahead for our earthquake repairs to the church and lower hall.  Hopefully that will happen very soon.  Watch this space.

Next Sunday at all our Services the Youth will be reporting back from a very special Easter Camp.

Please continue to pray for the process of appointment for a new Vicar, and for our Nominators; Murray Sandes, Duncan Hume, Claire Bickers and Maxine Kissling whose task it is to work with the Bishop and Diocesan Nominators in the interview process.  Applications close on 30 April.

Christ is risen!! He is risen indeed. Alleluia!!!!

Blessings

Kevin

Interim Priest-in-charge
