A Word from the Bishop...
Kia ora koutou – greetings from Wellington on this most stunning and sunny day
A dramatic difference from where I was a week ago. I was privileged to spend a week at Canterbury Cathedral attending Bishop's School, and unfortunately while I was there England was experiencing massive flooding. I joined with 25 other fresh Bishops from the global Communion to learn together and to share our experiences. Obviously the week was a rich time, and the good news is I can reassure you all that now that I have been to Bishop's School I know exactly what I am doing – yeah right!

Diocesan Picnic / Hui
Saturday 08 March
10am - 2pm
@ Wellington Cathedral
Bring the whole whanau
We are looking forward to as many Parishes and Mission Units as possible making the journey to be a part of this important Diocesan family day. If travel is difficult, please contact Archdeacon Wendy Scott on email or telephone 04 471 8596.
Our aim is to offer Parishes and Mission Units resources to enable them to engage with the three main Diocesan themes of 2014 which are:
• Child Poverty
We are also seeking to showcase what is working well in your patch. Do you have a project that you feel would be of benefit to the wider Diocesan family? If you have something that fits into one of the three key themes, please contact:
• Bi-culturalism – Archdeacon Wendy Scott on email or telephone 04 471 8596
• Discipleship – Gareth Bezett on email or telephone 04 471 8595
• Child Poverty – Archdeacon Stephen King on email or telephone 04 471 8590
So come along and showcase what you do.
We wish to promote the work of the Anglican Missions Board so will be having a sales table with all proceeds going to AMB. So gather up the makers in your Parish of preserves, chutneys, relishes and jams to produce some goodies to bring for the table. There will also be a sausage sizzle, tea and coffee, and scones for sale with the proceeds also going to AMB.
We hope that the Hui will be a great blessing to your mission and ministry in the Diocese.
No reira waiho ko te aroha o Te Matua Kaha Rawa hei korowai mou.
May the love of Almighty God enfold you!
