Parish notices – 11 November 2012

Can you believe 5 impossible things before Christmas?

You are invited to join us for a short series of bible studies to prepare for advent. These will follow Kevin Scully’s book, “Five Impossible Things to Believe Before Christmas”.

They will be held at 7.30pm on Tuesdays 27 Nov, 4 Dec and 11 Dec in the Hunter Lounge.  Further details are available here.

Missions Stall

Please support the Missions Bring and Buy stall this week. If you have brought something to donate, thank you; please have a look at the stall and see if you can buy something. The money goes to support missions.

St Brigid’s School Fair

The annual St Brigid’s School Fair is this Sunday, from 10.30am to 1.30pm. All are welcome to go along and support the school. Book stall, used clothes, games, cakes, raffles. At the  school, Dr Taylor Terrace.

Men’s Group

The next Men’s Group dinner is our Christmas Dinner, on Friday, 30 November 2012, meeting at 6.30pm for 7pm dinner, in the church hall. We hope that you can join us. Our guest
speaker is our Bishop, the Rt Rev. Justin Duckworth; we are most privileged to have him as our guest. If you can attend, please put your name on the clipboard, which will be at the back of the church from early November; or inform Dennis Mann, 938-4930. There will be a charge of $15 per person to cover the Christmas dinner, drinks, and other expenses.

Countdown coupons

Thank you to all who have donated coupons. We now have several boxes of the smaller tumblers (the larger ones were all gone each time I tried to get them). The promotion still runs for a short time so keep them coming!

Parish Bible study

Tuesday nights in the Hunter Lounge at 7.30pm. All welcome. For more information speak to James Vinod.

Prayer meeting

Wednesday at 7.30pm. All welcome.

Odd jobs

Fr Michael’s son is available to do odd jobs. If you have any work available, please contact him at Fr Michael’s, 977-9649.

Missions month

It’s once again time to bring in your mission boxes. Please leave them at the back of the church for Claire to collect, or contact Claire Hunter, 478-8568. This year we will be collecting them until Sunday, 18 November. Thank you for your continued support.

Ezee Meals

We have had word from Mission Foods that “it is with reluctance that we advise prices for Ezee Meal Main Meals will increase from 1st October 2012”. We are unfortunately going to have
to increase the sale price in line with this increase. Main Meals will therefore increase from $7.50 to $8.00 per meal to match the new Recommended Retail Price as from the 24th October.

Ezee meals are available in the parish hall on Thursdays from 9am to 12 noon.

Also there will always be someone who can help out after the 10 o’clock service on most Sundays.

If there is an urgent need known, please speak to Jo or Graham Soal (04 970 1336) or Katie in the Parish Office (04 973 1729).

Thank you for your continued custom.

Parish Office Hours

Although Katie is in the office 15 hours per week, only eight of those are worked for us. She works seven hours for Newlands parish from our office. The office hours listed now reflect this. Katie will be working for us on Monday, Thursday and Friday mornings. If you are able to make your calls (by phone or in person) during these hours it would be very much appreciated.
