Singalong at Cashmere Presbyterian: Do come and join us at the church 2 McMillan Ave, 2pm on Sunday 30th June for a SINGALONG of fun songs, old and new. Entry by gold coin donation.

At the end of the service our musicians will usually play a piece of music that gives us all time to reflect on the message given that day, as well as a moment when, in our own way, we can thank God for the privilege of being in church and able to share with those around us.

Whilst you may be eager to chat and/or go through to morning tea, please would you consider those around you who are enjoying the music and those who are still in contemplative mood regarding the morning’s service.

Thank you.

Wednesday Walkers 22nd May: Meet 9.30am corner of Grange Street and Aynsley Terrace for a walk around the area.  Coffee at Rob’s home.  All welcome.  Rob 027 273 1387.

Contributions are now being sought for the winter edition of the ‘Messenger’. Please email Sally (hooty@xtra.co.nz) by 22 May. Thank you.

Next Movie night Saturday 25th May 2024 5.15pm – ‘Lili’: Based on a Paul Gallico story, the film unfolds in the bright atmosphere of a travelling French carnival. Here Lili (Leslie Caron) becomes a waitress, but she is fired after one night for spending too much time watching Jean Pierre Aumont, the handsome magician with whom she is infatuated. Lili is grief stricken until a lame puppeteer (Mel Ferrer) uses his little friends to woo her from sorrow. Soon she is part of his act, childishly happy with the four puppets but unable to deal with their moody master, whom she calls “the angry man”. How Lili blossoms from the shy young orphan to womanhood with the puppets as her guides ….. a very special film for everyone.
