MOVIE NIGHT Saturday 27th November: ‘The holiday season is in full swing when a cultured gentleman with twinkling eyes, an ample belly, and a snowy beard is hired as Macy’s department store Santa. He claims his name is Kris Kringle, and soon fills everyone with Christmas spirit…except his boss, Doris Walker who’s raising her daughter to not believe in Santa. But when Kringle is declared insane and put on trial, everyone’s faith is put to the test as young and old alike face the age old question: Do you believe in Santa Claus?’

Miracle on 34th Street is an irresistible fable that has, for many years, become synonymous with celebrating Christmas. Winning three OSCARS, it features Edmund Gwenn, Maureen O’Hara and Natalie Wood.

BYO takeaway tea from 5.15pm. Tea & coffee available. Koha appreciated.

TWILIGHT CHRISTMAS MARKET Friday 10th December 5-8pm HERE. A combined fundraiser with our Anglican neighbours at St Mark’s. Sign the list in the foyer if you would like to help. Please NO clothes, shoes, white elephant or magazines. Further details from Irene.

From Marie Dobson & family: “Thank you all for the message sent on the loss of Bryan.  He has left a big void in our lives but we are taking each day as it comes.  We knew the end was closer than we had always imagined, but it still comes as a shock.  I am so fortunate to have the support of our 3 grown up children all presently living here in New Plymouth.  Thank you for your thoughts and prayers at this time.”
