Kia Ora All Saints,
We have come to the end of a long week of exciting Kingdom dreaming and planning. Last weekend we were away at Synod with other members of our diocesan whānau and while there was a lot of business agenda and passing of motions, there were also beautiful threads of hope and excitement at what God is doing in our midst. Gathering with others in our diocese is always an amazing opportunity to remind ourselves that we aren’t isolated and alone in the Eastern Suburbs of Wellington. We are a part of a large and vibrant movement of God!
Many All Saints leaders then went on to spend Tuesday through Thursday of this week learning about strategies and ways to continue to further the work of God’s kingdom in our community. There was a fair amount of excitement and challenge brewing so stay tuned for opportunities to hear more about this in weeks to come.
And of course, coming up next weekend is one of the biggest opportunities we have in the year to engage with our local community. Our annual light party is Sunday, October 29th from 3-5pm. If you have not yet found a way to get involved then ask around this Sunday at our Central Gathering or just come along on the day and meet people from our community.
In all the spaces where we have been this past week, we as leaders continue to be so proud to be a part of this parish and proud of all of you for stretching and growing together as we learn more about sharing God’s love with those around us. You are faithful and you are brave and we can’t wait to see the ways God will continue to move in our midst.
