Warden's Parish News 11 September
This week is our combined service at 9am – Rev Tony Gardiner will be taking the service – thank you Tony.
It is with great pleasure and celebration we are able to let you know that All Saint’s is sold.
The settlement went through last week. As we are sure you will understand at the moment it is not possible to give you a final amount for the sale as there are many adjustments to be made – the cost of the security surveillance, repairs to church etc have all to be calculated. These will come out of the parish share of the settlement. As soon as we have the figure, we will let you know.
If you have any questions, please talk to the wardens Lee (021 029 91480) or Flora (021 246 9846).
Don’t forget the working bee tomorrow – Saturday 12, 9am – 12 noon. This is to do a general spring tidy up around the gardens and church. Rumour has it there will be morning tea – Pam has worked out a way to do this while observing the Level 2 guidelines – thank you Pam.
You don’t need to come for the whole time – any help will be much appreciated.
Sprucing up the entrance to the hall
The entrance to the hall has been cleaned and painted – it looks very smart. Thank you to Pam, our property person, for organising this. Please remember Pam needs some help in organising the property up keep – it’s far too big a job for one person. If you are able to help here please talk to Pam or one of the wardens.
There have been two break ins to the hall over the last couple of weeks. It appears that it is someone looking for some warmth and shelter. They have gained access through one of the lower windows in the hall and helped themselves to a hot drink and heating – fortunately they have not done any damage other than the broken window. These break ins were both on a Wednesday evening and the police were called. We have checked with neighbours who did not hear anything.
The glass has been replaced each time and we are looking into getting some security alarms around the church and hall.
The Diocesan Council has decided to move the upcoming Synod to a virtual platform. Synod was to be held in Kāpiti Parish on the 19th of September but will now be held via Zoom online meeting on the same day.
Please keep our Synod representative, Michael Newbery, in your prayers as he prepares to represent Onslow Anglicans. We look forward to hearing from Michael about this year’s Synod.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Auckland as the Covid 19 outbreak continues – may they find strength in your presence and comfort in your grace.
May the strength of God pilot us
May the power of God preserve us
May the wisdom of God instruct us
May the hand of God protect us
May the way of God direct us
May the shield of God defend us
May the host of God guard us
May Christ be with us, before us, over us.
May thy salvation o Lord be always ours this day and forever more.
