A very warm welcome to all who worship with us this morning.

The Golden Rules under the “Orange Light” setting:

  • In Church, please 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. If you are uncomfortable about joining in morning tea please know that it is perfectly fine to not stay.

Next Sunday’s reading is: Luke 15:1-3 & 11b-32

Art Masterclass Friday 14th  October 1.30pm – 4.30pm: John Gillies, well known Christchurch artist and one of our regular Sunday Zoomers, has offered a rare opportunity to attend a ‘masterclass’ in painting at St Martins. John will demonstrate his painting techniques and offer the opportunity for participants in 2 groups of 6 people to create a canvas under his guidance. This will be a wonderful opportunity to see how John creates his paintings that are sought after by an international clientele. We will limit this event to 12 people and there will be a charge of $25 per person (payable in advance please) which will be John’s gift to the parish. Be quick – spaces are filling up fast! Email the Parish Office to register with Anna or Don no later than Sunday 02 October.
