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).  She can organise the alarm and every alarm installed will result in a donation to the Parish.  Contacts (04) 476 8987 or (027) 242 3199.

A Warm Welcome
We welcome the parents and families of the girls from the Girls Club who are with us at the 10.30 service today.  The girls will be taking part in the service.  If you’re aged between 6 and 106 and want to be part of Girls Club, please speak to Lucy or Yvette.

The Whakaahuru Singers seeking more singers
The Whakaahuru Singers sing, by request, at the bedside of people who are receiving palliative care or otherwise approaching the end of life.  Our singing offers comfort and relaxation to patients, a connection with community and a feeling of support which extends to family and caregivers.
We are currently seeking more singers to join our group.  If you feel you would like to be part of this committed group of singers please check out our website www.whakaahuru.org.nz  or contact us at info@whakaahuru.org.nz.
