A TIMELY REMINDER
Thank you for your support over the last year.  Your generosity has allowed Karori Anglican to continue to move forward in fulfilling its calling as a church.  

We are approaching the end of the financial year but there is still time if would like to make a donation for the current financial year.  By donating before 31 March you will be able to take advantage of the tax rebate for registered charitable purposes of 33.3%.  Another way of looking at this is that you can add a third to your giving now and receive that back from IRD within the next month or two.
