We had a great time together as we prayed, studied the sermon (always awkward watching yourself on video) and then shared some kai together. The bagels, avocados, bacon and coke were just what I needed after church!
This week however, puts our first steps into the community and a chance to meet others around Hataitai-Kilbirnie. We are doing this by inviting young people on to our premises and serving them some candy as a fun non-scary alternative to Halloween.
All this happening on a great day – All Saints Day!
For me this is a chance to share what we care about as All Saints. We are standing for being a light on a hill, a church known in our community and a space where others around us can enter. When we serve our community in this way we are being beacons of hope for our community. I am sure you will agree that our community need some positive events and engagements!
If you have not caught up already – we are running an alternative Trick or Treating event for young people. There are no services this week. In other words this is our 'GO' week.
11.30am - a short gathering for a time of Worship, Prayer and Briefing
12.30pm - Lunch BBQ and Setup
2.00pm - Trick and Treat event starts
4.00pm - Finish up
If you can make it for some of this day then that would be fantastic - the highest priority is coming to the Trick or Treat event and meeting our community who turn up!
Lastly, mark the 20th November 2021 in your diaries. You will see in the newssheet a notice about the Ordinations. A very exciting time for our church whānau
For now - stay safe and see you Sunday!
