John and Janet.png

As many of you know, after 19 years of dedicated and sterling service to the Karori Parish, our vicar John Hughes and Janet are moving on to a new stage in their ministry.  John is to become vicar of Eastbourne.  They go with our thanks, our blessings and our very best wishes. 
Their last Sunday in the Parish will be 18 February 2018. There will be only one service at 10 am.  This will followed by a catered lunch and some speeches. 

There will also be a presentation.  Parishioners will no doubt wish to express in a tangible way their gratitude for John and Janet’s service to the Parish.  Please make donations in specially marked envelops or by specifically identified bank transfers, preferably by Thursday 15 February.
