A very warm welcome to all who worship with us this morning. Many thanks to Rev Dan Yeazel for leading our service today. Next Sunday Chris Elliot will be with us.

We give thanks for the life of Rae Margaret Clarke, who died on 30th January at the age of 87. We pray for her family as they mourn. Rae’s funeral will be here at St Martins on Wednesday at 2pm.

Wednesday Walkers 7th February: We are going on an elephant hunt! Meet 9.30am at the Bus Exchange for a gentle stroll around the CBD to admire the elephants which have been painted in support of Laura Fergusson Brain Injury Trust. Coffee downstairs at Ballantynes. All welcome. Sue 960 7657.

Port Levy to Little Akaloa Men’s Pilgrimage with Paul Askin Sunday February 11th  8:30am to late afternoon carpooling from St Martins at 7:30am, with walk beginning at 8:30am with cooked breakfast at Port Levy.

Volunteers wanted – we are hoping to provide our MenzShed chaps with morning tea from time to time this year. If anyone would like to provide some home baking, please contact the Office.

Jars wanted: Sue is looking for medium sized, empty Moccona coffee jars. She thinks it is 100g. Thanks.

Recycling Changes: From 1 February, the Government has standardised what materials can be collected from households for recycling and organics across New Zealand. The only items now able to be recycled are plastic bottles, clear meat trays and containers number 1, 2 and 5, food and drink tins and cans, paper and cardboard, and glass bottles and jars. Christchurch residents are able to put empty pizza boxes into the yellow recycling bin. Tea bags, shredded paper, serviettes, paper towels and aerosol cans all need to go into the RED rubbish bin. All lids, soft plastics and drink cartons must continue to go in the red bin.
