Stay Safe and Support the Church
Many people in our Church wear a medical/security alarm and you would never know it.  But, slips, trips and falls are all too common.  So if you would like or need to wear a medical alarm or know somebody who wants one, talk to Shirley Tracy (who herself has one).  

Every alarm installed will result in a donation to the Parish.  Contact Shirley
476 8987 or 027 2423199.

Seasons for Growth
This is an education programme which explores the effects of change, loss and grief.  Using the imagery of the four seasons, the programme is a safe and proven way to help people process and adjust to changing experiences.  Bridgett Parkin will run a programme of six weekly sessions, starting on Tuesday 11 October, 6.45 – 9.15 pm, at KAC Church Offices.  Cost $28 for the workbook.  To register or for info contact Bridgett, 934-1811 or baparkin@clear.net.nz.
