Churches plan response to Hutt Valley water quality issues

The quality of water supply in the Hutt Valley is of considerable concern, says Rev Jean Malcolm of the St James’ Parish in Lower Hutt.  Jean is co-ordinating a worship and discussion evening at which Christians can hear about water quality issues in the valley, and consider ways in which they can contribute.

The event is timed to coincide with Matariki, the traditional Māori time of preparation for new crops to be planted – but also to reflect on our place in the world, review the past year and set goals for the year ahead.  It is being organised under the Transition Churches banner, a network of Christian churches who are working on local faith community responses to energy, climate, food and financial challenges.
