Combined Church Service, Sunday 6th December

Come along to the inter-faith service at the TSB Stadium at 10am, Sunday December 6th. Dave Mann from the Shining Lights Charitable Trust will be speaking and it is a wonderful opportunity to worship with fellow Christians from Churches throughout our City and rohe. 

While we consider it important to remain open for Sunday worship during the Advent Season which we follow very seriously in the Anglican tradition, this event is certainly well worth attending in support of our ecumenical brothers and sisters. It will be spectacular!


Community Giving for Christmas 

Instead of our usual Christmas food hampers, this year we’re supporting The Gift Taranaki who give parents engaged with local Social Services a (shoe)box of toiletries and treats. Donate individual items or fill your own shoe box. A collection box will be at the back of the church for the next three Sundays, or you can drop off your donations at the office by Monday 7th December.
