Do you ever wish to catch up with a sermon? Sermons are now available on our website www.stmartins.org.nz They may not be exactly what’s said, but you should get the message! Feel free to respond with your thoughts. The notices are also posted to the website so you can catch up with them even when you lose your hard copy.
Parish Breakfast 20th May is on Pentecost Sunday (wear something red!) Yes, it’s breakfast time again at church. The Men’s Group will be serving a choice of cereals, porridge and cream, and yummy hotcakes with fruit. Breakfast is served from 8.45am and a gold coin is appreciated to help cover costs.

Building Update….Some very large steel columns and beams were lowered through the roof of the church last Monday and attached to the rear wall of the church. Two brick infill panels are being removed and early next week the cross bracing will be placed in these ‘gaps’. Other infill panels will then be removed and cross bracing placed. This needs to be a staged process to ensure there is strength retained in the building should there be another good shake.
Thank you to Keith, Cyril, David, Colin, Barry, Rob & Dugald who helped clean up the church grounds last week!
