Draft roster

There is a draft of the roster from 19 May through the end of July at the back of the church. If you perform any rostered duties, please check the draft roster and note on it any scheduled duties that you can’t take. You can also tell Katie by contacting her at 973-1729 or There are two new duties listed on the 10am roster: data show (slides) and supervising children during the service. If you can help with either duty, please put your name down.

Tax receipts

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are not able to provide tax receipts on Sunday as we had planned. We will put them at the back of the church as soon as possible.

Looking to the future

The Vicar-elect, the Reverend Ben Johnson-Frow, will be instituted by Bishop Justin on Sunday, 28 July, though he will begin working in the parish in July for a time that overlaps Alister’s ministry here.

Please keep Ben, Terri and their children Jakob and Breanna in your prayers as they prepare for this move.

Helping children in need

The AAW invite any knitters to join us in knitting a scarf or pair of slippers for KidsCan Charitable Tust for children in decile one or two schools. NO plain red or plain denim blue scarves or slippers please.
Wool used is 12 ply, or double knitting using two strands. There are patterns at the back of the church. Please help if you can. I have discussed with Knit World, and plan to take the scarves or slippers in to them on Friday 7th June. Contact Toni Finkle 478-9201.
