Diocesan Hui
The Diocesan Hui (Our Family Reunion!) is on Parihaka Day, 5 November 2016, from 10 am to mid-afternoon.  Together we will celebrate, worship, tell stories, and cross-pollinate.  We’ll explore the three 2017 Diocesan themes:  Our Transforming God/Discipleship, Reducing Carbon Emissions/Climate Change, and Child Poverty.  

There will also be a screening of the film Taterakihi, which tells the story of Parihaka.  ALL are invited to the Wellington Cathedral for our annual family-friendly Hui.
