Since the last update we have hosted a variety of events which have demonstrated the wide use of our facilities.
AAW held their AGM here and representatives from all over assembled for their meeting. It was lovely to see them take full advantage of our rooms and we very much enjoyed hosting them at our morning service with the commissioning of their new committee.
The Ahuriri Anglicans met a couple of weeks ago to watch a film together. This is a successful scheme to try and bring together Anglicans in the Napier area. People from all the local churches joined together and we enjoyed watching a moving film as well as eating savouries and sweets together (and even sharing popcorn during the film!)
About 30 of us gathered for this. Another successful venture was the making of a collection of animals and other pieces of art out of flannels at our monthly Crafty Friday group. They have to be seen to be believed – the cupcakes look good enough to eat!
And then we had the Quiz night where about 90 of us had a wonderful evening’s entertainment under the guidance of Doreen. A great atmosphere with much laughter, shared knowledge and even a little bribery and corruption! Congratulations to the winning team who scored a magnificent 90 out of 100.
We have finished our 10 week series watching The Bible on DVD and discussing it afterwards on Sunday evenings. This month we have had our first Songs of Praise and are having another on 20th July – come and join us as we sing our favourite hymns accompanied by James Mist on the organ.
As always, please don’t hesitate to be in touch if you would like a visit or any other information,
We are a Fairtrade Church
