The Inside Column 7/2

Posted in: The Inside Column- Feb 07, 2016 No Comments

Good morning and a warm welcome to all. If you are visiting with us today, we would love to get to know you. Please feel free to stay for a hot drink after the service.

We have been approached by the NCC about the sale of the Vicarage and land at the back of the Church. There has been a small team of Vestry members that have been meeting with NCC over the last 12 months. We have come to the point where Vestry has approved the idea and agreed to go through the process for this sale to take place. For this to happen we need approval from Vestry, Parishioners (you), the Diocese Trust Board,  and Finally the Diocese Standing Committee. There will be a special Church meeting at 7.00pm Tuesday 1 March in the church.

In the pew sheet this morning there is an insert with information that explains in more detail the pros and cons and will hopefully help answer some of your questions. Please be assured this is a process and every effort will be made to hear and consider your views. Please feel free to talk to vestry members or myself with any questions.

We are looking for a small team of people to help with Orphans Aid International annual Street Appeal. Council approval has been given for Saturday 12th March 2016. Orphans Aid International is a Charitable Trust founded and run by people who care about the marginalised and disadvantaged amongst us. They care about the child who has no parent, the child who has no home, the child who is not loved. They care enough to do something about it. By collecting for them, we can support their passion to see children loved and cared for. A signup sheet is in the foyer.

February 19-21 is Convergence family camp for 2016. This is a great opportunity for us as a church family to go away together for the weekend, to spend some time worshiping, learning, having fun, in one of the most beautiful parts of NZ.Tomorrow is the last day to register, so  get your registration form in and come along for a great weekend away. All the cabins gone, but there are still powered and non-powered camp sites available. If you are coming for the day can you let us know?

 

Yours in Christ

Philip
