Worship on Sunday 28 February:  Due to the Bryndwr site being within the circuit of the Weetbix Sanitarium Triathlon on the 28th, worship that day will be held with the St Lukes (Chch Nth) folk at their site, cnr Daniels Road and Main North Road, at the usual time of 10am.

While we will do everything we can to make this known, we would appreciate any help you can give to ensure that as many of the people from The Village as possible are made aware of this change. 

Book Stall : Our monthly book stall happens the 14th (after church).  We welcome donations of books, fiction and non-fiction, for children and adults.  Bring some coins if you would like to purchase some new reading material for yourself or as a gift.

Giving to The Village:  Some wonderful things happen through The Village, and people giving financially is an important way to support both our church activities and the initiatives we run to serve our communities. 

An offering is made available during our Sunday worship but you are also welcome to give by automatic payment or envelope which means you can claim a tax credit of 33% for your donation.  Please contact Keren R. or Donella D. for more information. 

Donations for Burnside School: Thank you very much to everyone who has provided a great supply of food for the start of the year at Burnside Primary School.  This can be a difficult time financially for families so your help is really appreciated.  

We have had a very generous donation which has supplied most of the hygiene items for Term one so we are looking especially for food- tins of fruit and vegetables, jams and spreads, tea, coffee and hot chocolate, biscuits, rice, pasta etc.  We put in the occasional bag of sweets too. Thank you very much for your ongoing help.  The school and the families really appreciate it.

Mid-week service @ Papanui: The mid-week service is back up and running.  This week twelve people gathered for the service on Thursday and shared lunch together afterwards.  There is generally room in the service for discussion and the topic is taken from what will be preached on the coming Sunday.  If you would like to come along and join the happy and interesting group that gather, then you will be made very welcome.  We are grateful to Olwyn who plays for these services and all who come and participate in the service and lunches and particularly in making the gatherings warm and inviting.

Soup: our lunches include soup, rolls and muffins.  If you are a keen soup maker then we would welcome any contributions to these lunches.  You can leave soup at either office, preferably in an ice-cream-like container so it can be frozen and used as necessary. 

Indoor Bowls at Papanui:  Come and join us at the Papanui complex on a Friday afternoon 1.30pm to 3.00pm for a social game of indoor bowls. No previous experience needed. The first afternoon will be 5th March 2021.  Arrive by 1.15pm and wear flat, soft-soled shoes.

Specially catering for those people who can’t come to evening bowls at Bryndwr.  Contact Margaret S. – Phone for further details.

Dance & Arts Therapy focus on people with disabilities or special needs. A new Arts 4 All session is underway at Papanui. Friday 11am – 12noon during term time.

This is in addition to their Dance 4 Us session at Bryndwr on Thursdays 11am-12noon (which has space for more people to attend, if you know anyone who may be interested). For more info contact Doreen Lehmann 021 126 4917.
