A very warm welcome to all who worship with us today.

The Golden Rules under the “Orange Light” setting:

  • Vaccine passes are no longer required to attend worship.
  • If you’re sick or feeling unwell, get tested and isolate if you’re required to. Omicron is still with us and infections are still occurring. Use Zoom on Sundays.
  • If you plan to be in Church, wear a mask that is firmly in place and fully covers your nose and mouth.
  • Please continue to wear your mask until seated at morning tea.

Don is on leave 13-28 May – please contact the Parish Clerk, Irene Gray 332 7306 if you have any urgent pastoral concerns during this time.

Next week 15th May Community Sunday celebrating the work of Waltham Community Cottage Te Whare Roopu o Oteropo. Please bring donations of tinned soups and stews to beat the winter blues – these can be brought forward during the service.

Thank you to everyone for your contributions that you place in the baskets each week. They really do make a difference.  Lyndsey McKay.

Wednesday Walkers 11th May: Meet 9.30am in the Fendalton Mall Car Park on Memorial Ave, just up from the Clyde Rd corner (park away from the shops), for a walk round part of Fendalton. Coffee will be at Bakermans Café. All are welcome. Alan 021 142 7668  or Barbara 021 126 3801.

Fireside meetings on a different day.  In the current situation with Covid, Fireside welcomes women to come to informal meetings for friendship.  Because people have been finding that having meetings on Wednesdays is difficult we are going to try meeting on the second Monday afternoon of each month. This will be from 1.30pm at church.  The first of these is planned for Monday 9th May.  We look forward to catching up with each other.  Enquiries: Margaret 366 8936
