Rev. Robert Simpson introduces his new book – “The Ripple Effect” – an exciting look at the Twenty-Third Psalm!  This is free!

The simple power of King David’s psalms never fails to reaffirm the presence of the guiding hand of God, but it has also many personal truths that have been the author’s experiences including being resident in Ngaio Marsh Retirement Village.  Go on, take one or two of The Ripple Effect!  It may be the very thing that you are after! 

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.
