Village Prayers: Praying together for God’s life amongst us and our communities is an important rhythm in our week. We meet on Thursday mornings at 8am in the Chapel at Bryndwr for this. Anyone is welcome to join. We are usually finished by 8:30am. If you have questions, talk with Dan.
Women’s Fellowship is meeting on Friday 26 May at the home of Hannie from 2 p.m. Everyone is most welcome. Please ring Hannie if you have any questions and bring a small plate of something delicious to share.
Cleaning at Bryndwr: We are without a cleaner at Bryndwr for the next few weeks while Adrienne is unavailable. We please ask that all groups take an extra minute or two to ensure they leave the spaces clean and tidy, ready for the next group. Many thanks, Dan.
Kids Club is each Monday 3-5pm. If you have children or grandchildren that would like to join the Kid’s Club, you can get a registration form from the office, or contact Kate B or Dan.
We are looking for adult leaders to help volunteer, a flexible arrangement is fine. We are in need of someone to run the kitchen in June, July and August – or different people on a roster during that time.
Lego – we are looking for Lego for Village Kids and Kids Club. If you have any spare, please contact Kate B, or the office.

Congregational Meetings – Notice is given of Congregational Meetings to decide on the following motion:
‘That The Village set the insurance for the buildings at Bryndwr and Papanui, and for the Manses at Truman Road and Virtue Place at ‘Reinstatement (or Replacement)’ cover, and that the insurance for the building at Redwood be set at ‘Indemnity’ cover.’
Reinstatement (or Replacement) Insurance Cover: provides cover for repairs or replacement of the building as new.
Indemnity Insurance Cover: provides cover to put the congregation in the same position it was in before any loss, allowing for the depreciation of the building. It will not provide the funds to totally reinstate the building in the event of loss.
Meetings will be held following worship on the following dates: Sunday 28th May at Bryndwr, Thursday 1st June at Papanui following the Midweek Service, and Sunday 4th June at Redwood.
