Cursillo Weekends

Cursillo is a movement of the Church, with its own method that helps Christians learn and live what is fundamental to being a Christian. And having done that, to help these same Christians discover and live out a personal vocation.  

The three day weekends are an opportunity to live for a short time in Christian community, distancing yourself from the pressures of the outside world.

Rosters
We are moving to a new system for rosters.  You will be advised by email of the dates and duties you are rostered for, and will be reminded the week before you are rostered.  As is always the case with anything new there are likely to be a few teething problems so please be kind.

Tower Strengthening Work

Wellington City Council has approved the building consent for strengthening work on St Mary’s Tower and our contractor has given us a start date of
7 June.  It is intended, and has been assessed as safe, to keep using the rest of St Mary’s over the four weeks the work takes.  Between now and the start date we will be working with the groups that use St Mary’s to confirm how we can clear the area needed and how they can keep using St Mary’s as work proceeds.

Thank you for your ongoing support of this important strengthening work.   
Property Sub Committee

High school aged youth—study time during the 10:30 am service.  We will gather together with the rest of the church for worship but will leave with the Sunday School crew and head over to the offices for a weekly study and then re-join the church for communion.
