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 Ritchie or Donella Duff for more information.

School Holiday reminder: the holiday time of 11th to 22nd July means many of our regular groups take a two-week break.

Help required: The Parish Council has been tasked with selling the former Redwood manse. The process for putting the property on the market is underway. It is most likely that we will need to get the house and grounds ready for the sale in the coming weeks so help will be needed with lawn cutting, general garden tidying, window cleaning etc;. If you are able to assist, please leave a message with either office. Thank you.

Papanui office is closed the 2nd week of the holidays, 18th to 22nd July, re-opening Monday 25th.
