Pastoral Care Team
Our Pastoral Care Team has a dedicated core who meet regularly. We offer phone and email support when people are ill, we do hospital visits when agreed upon, and our presbyter is keen to do home visits and to provide home communion for those unable to attend the Sunday service. Some of the team do home visits as well.
We have an active prayer chain, to support those coping with illnesses, with grief and with any other requests made to us, including gratitude for life experiences. Confidentiality is highly respected and maintained. Wendy Lashbrook at 027-671-5232 manages that for us.
In the Sunday services there also is a prayer book available for Intercessional prayer requests during the service. Again, confidentiality and anonymity is respected.
For us, supporting people in their time of need is a rewarding experience. Requests for care can be made to the church office : 09-426-5615. You can leave a message. Your call will be answered. Our Presbyter can be reached, Rev Sione Tesimale: 021-206-5246.
Monday Morning Social Group
A friendly group of 500 card players who begin at 9am and scrabble players who start at 930am. We conclude at mid-day having socialized at 10am over morning tea or coffee.
Kids Club started this year and operates every Sunday during school terms. The Kids Club is a safe and secure place for our young children to get together during the main church service to learn about God. These are generally children who are accompanying their families to church.
The format is that all families join the main service where the Minister of the day shares a story/theme with the children. After the children’s’ story, the children leave the main service and join all the other children and the Kids Club helpers in the Kid’s Club room which is in a separate part of the church.
The themes for each week have been identified and are aligned to the main service each week. A mix of online and printed resources are provided. Each Kids’ Club leader prepares for lessons, which usually consist of a discussion on the weekly theme, one or two activities (split by junior and senior ages), crosswords, art work and closing in prayer.
Friday night Youth Group
The youth is in an development stages at the moment with the focus to provide a safe place where they can be themselves, to hang out, to have fun and learn about who they are in Christ. It will be a time where they can navigate how their faith plays a vital part in shaping how they would like to see themselves in the future.
There will be youth outing's, guest speakers, be involved in community events, music, drama, games, church camps and bible fellowship. We have youth that will be leading most of the activities so please come along, all are welcome! Friday's @530pm.
If you need further information, you can call the church office 09 426-5615 or our Presbyter Sione Tesimale 0212065246.
