Our Current Season
The season of Advent holds a significant place in the church calendar as a time. It is a period of four weeks leading up to the birth of Jesus Christ. During Advent, we joyfully celebrate the coming of the Messiah, reflecting on the Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace that Jesus brings into our lives. Through prayer, scripture readings, liturgical traditions, and acts of kindness. It is a time of deep reflection, repentance, and renewal, inviting us to open our hearts to the transformative power of the Christmas message. Advent offers us an opportunity to prepare ourselves spiritually, not only for the annual commemoration of Christ's birth but also for the constant presence of Christ in our lives.
During the Christmas and New Year's summer break, many people take the time to unwind and enjoy a well-deserved rest. It is a time for families and friends to come together, celebrate, and create lasting memories. While some individuals are away on vacation, seeking relaxation and rejuvenation, we understand the importance of continuing to serve our community. Although we may be operating with a lighter congregation, our commitment to providing meaningful services remains unwavering.
So in saying this, Beginning December 31st through till February 5th, we will only have a 10 am service on Sunday mornings. Wednesday Eucharist Service will also be taking a timely break, with the last service being on December 20th, and we will resume on January 10th with renewed energy.
All Saints is a vibrant worshipping community, and there is something for everyone - whether you prefer traditional or contemporary worship, or a quiet midweek reflective service. Whatever our preferences, we all want to develop in our faith and live it out. All our services are held in the All Saints Conference Centre.
Wednesday 10am Communion Service
This is our midweek celebration of Holy Communion. The service, which lasts about 40 minutes includes time to pray for those in need, a ‘thought for the day’ or discussion of the Bible readings and is followed by morning tea together.
Sundays 9am Traditional Service
The 9am Service is a traditional Communion Service which uses the New Zealand Prayer Book and ‘Hymns For Today’s Church’. The service is an hour long and includes a sermon, organ music and sometimes a choir. The 9am congregation is a close-knit and caring community, which enjoys meeting socially and providing quality worship of a traditional nature. Morning tea is served after this service – all are welcome.
Sundays 10.30am Whānau Service
The 10.30am Service is focused on whānau/family with a less formal style of worship. It has solid biblical teaching, prayer, liturgy and communion. Whilst family orientated, the service caters for old and young alike, in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Morning tea is served from 10am, before the service, when there’s a chance to catch up with members of the church family worshipping at the 9am service.
Sundays 7pm Breathe
Breathe is a gathering for those who wish to approach God through contemplative practice and theology. The gathering will include a short reading or teaching, space for participants to share their own thoughts and experiences, contemplative prayer practice (such as Centering Prayer), and a chance to connect with others who are on a similar journey. 7-8pm
