Leave a comment

covenant 01Always a special day of the year, and this year, as we prepare for a new kind of inner city ministry in Christchurch, we meet with the Central South Island Synod Superintendent Rev Kathryn Walters to commission Rev Andrew Donaldson and Rev Jill van de Geer as they take up their new roles within the Parish – Andrew as Parish Superintendent and Jill with Pastoral oversight.

Join us at 10.00am in the Hall at the Knox Centre, 28 Bealey Avenue, for this special celebration, which will also include sharing in Holy Communion.

Good morning! And what a lovely drop of rain – just what the garden needs!

fruitThis week we are back in the Hall at the Knox Centre for our 10.00am Service of Worship.  The service will be led by Rev Dr Barbara Peddie, and there will be a cup of tea or coffee with the Knox Presbyterian congregation afterwards.

This week is also “fruit week” – Aratupu Pre-School and Nursery reopened on Monday last, and the children are just as keen as ever to get on with life.  Fresh fruit that can be held in little hands as well as cans of fruit are always welcomed by the staff, the children, and their families.

Yes, the New Year 2016 is well under way, and people are starting to return to work – the Connexional Office re-opened this week, and Sue is back in the office at Upper Riccarton next week.

Meanwhile, we will be worshipping with the Knox Presbyterian Congregation this Sunday, in the Knox Church, at 10.00am.

John Wesley SchoolThe children at John Wesley School, Eshowe, in South Africa, will be starting classes for 2016 next week, and if you would like to contribute to the ongoing education of these children, often from families otherwise unable to afford to send them to school, remember there are labelled envelopes available on the table in the Hall nearest the door to the foyer/vestibule – or can you pop a donation in your own envelope, with the words “John Wesley School” on the outside.  Alternatively, donations can be made online – but do make sure you indicate it is for the School.
