The Licencing & Ordination of Josh Olds

We are very excited to be planning a service of Licencing and Ordination for Josh following the completion of his Internship on 3 December, 5pm at Papanui, followed by a shared supper. This will be a wonderful time of congratulations and celebration for Josh as he embarks on the next chapter in his Ministry.

Women’s Fellowship End of Year Gathering on 1st December:  You are warmly invited to afternoon tea at the Kate Sheppard Heritage House, 83 Clyde Road on 1 December at 2 pm. Admission to the museum for a Supergold card holder is $7.50 and afternoon tea is $8.50. This also includes entry to the ‘Sure to Rise’ exhibition. A further option is to listen to a 40 minute presentation on Kate Sheppard’s life, for an additional cost.

(Because of the catering, bookings are essential. RSVP was needed by 17 November). Thank you, Catherine McK.

All Elders are invited to join the Parish Council in their 6 month assessment of our Vision, Mission, and Actions. The Parish Council regularly reviews this document to ensure we are doing what we want to be doing and to be sure we are looking after and supporting all our activities, initiatives, and people as best we can. You are invited to join on Tuesday December 12 at the Village Papanui from 7:15pm and we will finish the meeting at 8:30pm with a shared supper. Being December, this will be a good way to also celebrate and mark the end of another year. The meeting will be held in The Nest at Papanui.

The Parish Council gives notice of (another!) congregational meeting to confirm the final nomination of a parish representative on the Ministry Settlement Board being established for the new role at Papanui. The meeting will be held on December 3rd at Bryndwr, following the Morning worship service.
