Men’s Lunch

A hugely successful and interesting lunch was held for the men recently.  Evan Smith from the Avon Otakaro network spoke about the development of the ‘city-to-sea’ corridor and future plans for the red zone area.   Lots of interesting questions were raised and discussed.

Christians Against Poverty

This very successful Course was held recently.    Those who attended found it helpful to take the time to actually look at their finances, where the money went etc and felt a sense of empowerment as they took charge of their finances.   We will run another Course after Easter, register expressions of interest to the parish office.



Christmas Meal


A very successful Christmas meal was held here on the 23rd December for anyone who wanted to come along.   We had Christmas cheer galore for the happy season!   There’s a picture of the table settings, what a lot of fun was had by all!!

Parish Fair

We were very lucky with the weather at the recent Fair as it had been so cold building up to it.   One thing you cannot control!    We are so grateful to:









These Company’s all donated prizes, gifts, plants etc which enabled us to run raffles and add to our stalls, all making a successful profit for the church and to put towards our getting a rebuild one day.

Thanks to all people involved on the day!
