Proposed Day of Giving: Sunday 26th September.
Please keep this date in your hearts as we seek deeper financial commitment towards the operation of our parish. Watch this space as we move forward with planning.
As at the beginning of August (next weekend), we will be returning to the original ‘repeating Sunday’s’ style roster.
I.e. where for each month you are allocated the same Sunday/month.
And for the majority of you, this means returning to the Sunday you were previously allocated (with one or two minor tweaks to accommodate requests that we have recently received).
A copy of this roster has been emailed out with the latest newsletter, plus there are paper copies available at the back of the Church.
We are FOREVER GRATEFUL and give thanks for all that you ALL do in serving this way!!!!
Note 1: August has a ‘fifth Sunday so this will be a Combined Service and “who does what” will be sorted out closer to the time…)
Note 2: If ‘where’ you are allocated no longer works for you – please contact the office.
Thank you all for your generosity and enthusiasm to help us over the line to make up 260 Health Packs for the children at Waltham School. There were also many items of clothing, including the huge bag of beautiful beanies, which the school will give out as needed. Alexa McPherson, Noeline Blackburn, Elizabeth Hitch, Harriett Morrow and Lois and Derk Allan all have my gratitude for sorting, packing and delivering.
Thank you for wonderful backup!
Ps, there is also a letter of ‘thanks’ from the school on the noticeboard at the back of the Church.
We have received a lovely stack of ‘Thank You’ cards from some of the children at Waltham Primary School.
They are hanging on the notice-board at the back of the Church for you to enjoy!
When you get your Covid-19 vaccine, give $10 so that one of the world’s most vulnerable can get theirs.
Because Covid-19 won’t be over until it’s over for everyone
‘Get one Give one’ is an Anglican Church wide campaign developed jointly with the Wellington Diocese. When every Anglican gets their health-system funded vaccine, they are invited to donate to the global initiative funds support for vaccine equality in countries that would otherwise miss out. Funds will be channelled through UNICEF which, on behalf of the Global COVAX facility, is leading the largest vaccine
procurement and supply operation ever undertaken, aiming to supply 2 billion vaccine doses by the end of the year.
To donate go to:
(nb, you can donate more than $10, there is no limit)
