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

The Golden Rules under the “Orange Light” setting:

  • 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.
Next Sunday’s reading is: Luke 7:18-28

To celebrate Matariki, our next film evening will be on Saturday 25th June. Shared tea – starting at 5.15pm – can be whatever you like or a New Zealand staple and favourite!!!! ‘Second Hand Wedding’ is a heartwarming role set in a time when Trade Me and e-bay threaten the primeval urge for a first hand crack at the second hand. ‘Second Hand Wedding’ follows the fortunes of the Rose family, who live on the idyllic Kapiti Coast, where the sunsets are spectacular, parking is still free and bargains abound. Clouds gather, however, when it becomes clear that Cheryl has issues with her mother’s voracious bargain hunting, which she fears will ruin her up and coming wedding. Irene 332 7306.
