    A seminar led by Bishop Richard Randerson

    We live in troubled times with growing numbers in Western society marginalised and alienated, through poverty, homelessness and related causes. This seminar examines the socio-economic realities for New Zealand and offers a critique of the neo-liberal values which underpin them. By contrast, Gospel values of mutuality and well-being raise critical questions about choices for all Kiwis in the September election.

    This seminar is led by Richard Randerson, a retired Anglican bishop, now living in Wellington, whose 50 years in ministry have focused on the church’s engagement with wider society, addressing issues of poverty and justice, ethics in the public square, and contemporary issues of theology and inter-faith. This seminar is available on request in other parishes or groups - email Richard or phone him on 04 976 6050 for more information.

    St Mary's Church, Levin

    This event runs from 12pm - 6:30pm on Friday the 19th, and 9:30am - 5pm on Saturday the 20th of May.

    EFM (Education for Ministry) is a program of study devised primarily for lay people (though ordained folks benefit from participating too!).  It provides four-years of study material at a tertiary level and a learning environment where the reading and reflection undertaken by the individual members of the group is then reflected on together at weekly group meetings and applied to everyday life and ministry.

    EFM is a way to continually deepen the journey with God in the company of a group who provide challenge and support and co-learning opportunities. It has both academic rigour and a holistic, grounded way of applying that rigour to the realities of 21st century life, living into what into means to be disciples of Christ in our particular time and context.

    To support the life of EFM groups and provide for the possibility of new groups forming we need to have mentors who are trained in the skills needed to facilitate these co-learning groups. A mentor is not an expert, or a tutor, but a co-learner with group members who has the added group skills to ensure that a safe, honest, non-judgmental learning environment is fostered. If you think that you might have what it takes to be a mentor, and/or are interested in in stepping into the adventure that is EFM, fill in this form and come along to the training event in Levin.

    Coming to the training does not commit you to being a mentor! Come, taste, and see!

    Climate change is the biggest issue of our time - yet New Zealand has no comprehensive plan for tackling it.

    As churches who love our global neighbours and God's earth, it is time to stand up for a more compassionate and responsible future.  A youth climate organisation has launched a blueprint for a Zero Carbon Act - can this help keep New Zealand on track? What is the role of churches in this movement for change? Come along to learn more about the Zero Carbon Act and brainstorm ways for churches to be involved.

    RSVP to Kate Day or at the Facebook event page.

    Please join us and the Doing Our Bit campaign to show that even though this is an election year, New Zealanders aren't only focussed on ourselves - we want to do our bit for people wanting protection in New Zealand.

    This election, the Doing Our Bit campaign will be asking MPs and candidates to pledge their personal support to doubling the quota. We think that if anyone running for office consults their conscience on the quota they'll find themselves in favour of doing our fair share. We're asking that the refugee issue is moved away from party politics and to the consciences of each elected representative.

    On 15 June we'll launch our pledge cards and ask MPs to come out of Parliament Buildings and be among the first to offer their personal support.

    On the 20th, Bishop Justin will speak alongside others at the event at Parliament, and all members of the Diocese are invited to attend to show their support, compassion and empathy.

    Bishop Justin would like to encourage those with an interest in this important issue to attend this conference. It is easy to think that at our end of the globe we are immune to the effects of human trafficking and labour exploitation but sadly this is not the case and this conference is a welcome opportunity to educate ourselves and hear from subject experts. We are fortunate to welcome as our keynote speaker Andrew Wallis OBE, CEO of the UK organisation Unseen, who work to eradicate modern day slavery and have been catalysts for the UK’s Modern Slavery Act. Thank you to Chris Frazer for her organisation and advocacy work for this conference.

    On the 18th of August, Wellington Cathedral of St Paul will host its inaugural Morph event - a TED-style symposium on theology designed for everyone in the Diocese.  Scholars from all over New Zealand will join Cathedral Deacon the Rev Dr Joe McGarry to teach on topics from church history, to missiology, to theology - and it's set to be a fun affair.  It just so happens that the Cathedral's sustainable fashion show is the night after, so Morph will use the same catwalk set up.  It's a free event, and everyone is welcome.

    The Wellington Abrahamic Council of Jews, Christians, and Muslims is pleased to present two opportunities to hear and interact with Sami Awad, the Director of the Holy Land Trust, an organisation based in Bethlehem focusing on nonviolence as the catalyst to end all forms of conflict and establish an enduring and comprehensive peace in the Holy Land.

    About this workshop:

    Leadership has many dimensions. Through vision, inspiration, strategy and determination, leaders move others toward outcomes. Too often, however, we envision leadership too narrowly; a leader takes us from Point A to Point B. We are usually constrained by past experience in envisioning future possibilities. Our solutions are usually new iterations of what hasn’t worked in the past.

    Holy Land Trust moves beyond these failures and frustrations through a practice called nonlinear leadership. Nonlinear leadership is a personal transformation process that enables leaders to engage in making the impossible possible. It addresses the question of what makes us see something as impossible. Leaders come to understand how powerfully the past influences our decisions in the present, for the future. With this awareness, individually and collectively, leaders become able to facilitate a process in which they build a vision of the future that honors, respects and learns from the past, while, at the same time, remaining free from its limitations.

    Tickets for this event are expected to sell out quickly. If you miss out on the workshop, you can still attend Sami’s public lecture (see event on evening of the same day).

    The Wellington Abrahamic Council of Jews, Christians, and Muslims is pleased to present two opportunities to hear and interact with Sami Awad, the Director of the Holy Land Trust, an organisation based in Bethlehem focusing on nonviolence as the catalyst to end all forms of conflict and establish an enduring and comprehensive peace in the Holy Land.

    About this event:

    Sami Awad brings an important voice to the table in the discussion about peace in the middle east – the voice of nonviolence.

    “My enemy was a group of people that had experienced continued threat, violence, discrimination and racism,” Sami said. “There was never a healing for the Jews. Both groups, the Jews and the Palestinians have a similar type of trauma – an existential threat to their existence – so they can never let their guards down.”

    “For the first time I began to see that peacemaking is not about making a political commitment, it’s a commitment to a deep healing of deep traumas. Until we do that we can never do peacemaking.”

    Calling for a paradigm shift in peace and justice Sami, who established Holy Land Trust with Palestinian and Israeli peace activists, explained how his organisation tries to help people to look into the past with a different lens.  He said: “We negotiate peace out of fear, we resist out of fear. Fear is what motivates and if we are not able to bring about healing there can never be any peace for the future.”

    Come learn about Sami’s approach to overcoming fear and violence to achieve lasting healing and peace in the Middle East.

    We look forward to welcoming John to the Diaconate at Ngatiawa, noting his deep connection to that place and its importance in our family life.

    John is married to Karen (for more than 40 years) and they have seven children and 17 (living) grandchildren.  For most of their adult lives they have lived in residential community, and for the last almost five years have loved being part of Urban Vision and the community at Ngatiawa River Monastery.  John trained and worked as a lawyer, then alongside theological study was part of the leadership team in Wellington Youth for Christ, followed by many years of pastoral leadership in Lifepoint Church in Wellington.  John and Karen together have a passion to see people, families and communities formed in the way of Jesus.

    Priests officiating marriages of couples in the Anglican Church are required, in the Marriage Canon, to ensure the couple has undergone marriage preparation.  The Diocese is pleased to offer two opportunities for Facilitator training in the Prepare-Enrich marriage preparation and enrichment programme with Max Palmer.  There are now two versions of the programme and we are offering training in each.

    • Saturday 30 September at St Paul’s Church, Kapiti Road, Paraparaumu from 9.00am to 4.00pm – full version
    • Saturday 14 October at the Diocesan Team Training Day, Palmerston North for four hours – short version

    Training is open to lay people (check with your parish priest) and clergy (and their spouses).  In both cases it is preferable for those doing the facilitator training (where they are couples) to do the Prepare Enrich Questionnaire themselves, so a speedy response with your email address, will ensure this.

    The cost is subsidised and is just $50.00 per person.  This includes all materials you will need on a flash drive, and a free first assessment.  Parishes may help with payment from their training budgets.

    Sisters of the Spirit: a conversation on the Bible and women as agents of God's salvation and liberation.

    with Rt Rev Dr Eleanor Sanderson, Assistant Bishop of Wellington; and Bronwyn Kerr; and introduction by Rev Richard Noble.

    Until the last century, the Christian Bible has had a dominant role in shaping the worldview and values of 'Western' societies. In the 'post-Christian' era, the authority and credibility of the Bible has been called into question, including by secular feminists, who have often understood the Bible to be inherently patriarchal. This session explores whether the Bible in fact tells subversive stories of women that not only value their personhood and action, but also portrays them as integral to the 'big story' of God's salvation and liberation, and so might be a spiritual resource for contemporary women.

    (Soup and bread from 6pm, discussion kicks off at 6:30)

    David Haas, composer of contemporary liturgical music, will present three workshops in greater Wellington on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th October.  Details of the workshops and venues are below.  Registrations please by 11 October to Ann Williams at the Catholic Archdiocese of Wellington on a.williams@wn.catholic.org.nz, advising which workshop(s) you are registering for. Entry by koha.

    Friday 13th October

    Venue: 7.00-9.00pm at Sacred Heart Catholic Cathedral, Hill Street, Wellington (hot drink available from 6.30pm)

    Workshop 1 - “When we are weak, we are strong: Praying and Singing the Mystery of Suffering”

    At the heart of our song, is the mystery of suffering and brokenness – this is what we call “the paschal mystery”.  During this session we will sing, pray and explore repertoire that digs deep into this mystery of being human, and how throughout the liturgical year and in celebrating the sacraments, we sing “Christ crucified”, and “Christ risen” in the music that we choose and lead in worship.

    Saturday 14th October 

    Venue: Ss Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Knights Road, Lower Hutt (there will be a break for a hot drink between sessions)

    Workshop 2 (9.30-10.50am) -“How Different Are We:  The Blessed Unity of Sung Prayer”

    More and more, we are trying to grapple with the many different tastes that people hold when it comes to music and liturgy; the rising cultural and musical diversity that makes up both the beauty and the challenge of our global Church.  How are we, “one in Christ?” When there is so much diversity and so many different spiritualities in our music, our worship, and in what we believe?  How does liturgical music help to bring us together, so that we can truly, “put on Christ” and be that light to the world?

    Workshop 3 (11.10am-12.30pm) – “Music and the Mass: Step by Step”

    This workshop is designed to be a step-by-step, “walk through” of the Eucharistic Liturgy.  We will examine the four major ritual units (Gathering, Word, Table and Mission), and do an inventory of what the ritual moments call for in terms of music, and ultimately, their deeper and more prayerful purpose.

    Are you looking for new ideas, plans and actions for how your church can practically live out its faith? Do you worry about building a church that is engaged with its community and will remain engaged into the future? Do you wonder how your church can help build the kingdom of God in Aotearoa, New Zealand?

    If so, you are invited to join with other church leaders, pastors, volunteers and involved lay people for a one-day conference. Come and be inspired, informed, and equipped to lead your church into effective stewardship, a refocus on God’s mission in your community and hope for the future.

    Christian Savings, in partnership with Carey Centre for Lifelong Learning and Laidlaw College, is bringing together a range of experts from different church backgrounds to address some of the difficult questions of mission and ministry in the twenty-first century. What is the place of the church in a changing culture? How do we best manage our finances? What does strategic planning look like for a church? If we can’t do everything, what should we focus on? The day will start with some theory: church, society and culture. We’ll then move into practice: faith in action, money (investment and stewardship), and where to find help. The day will end with inspiration: real life case studies of churches doing well.

    As Desmond Tutu says in his recent book, The Book of Joy, God has hard-wired us as human beings to be at our best, our happiest, when we are helping and caring for others. This conference has at its heart the mission of God, and what that looks like when our churches express it well in their communities.

    Christian Savings is pleased to offer subsidised ticket prices of $30 per person, because we believe every church in New Zealand can benefit from asking these questions and receiving expert guidance on how to answer them for their communities.

    The Wellington Abrahamic Council of Jews, Christians and Muslims presents this public lecture.

    Speakers:
    Jewish: Sue Esterman, Temple Sinai
    Christian: Diane Gilliam-Weeks, Presbyterian Church
    Muslim: Rehanna Ali, Islamic Women’s Council

    In this ever-changing world, as women's role(s) have been and are constantly re-defined, they impact and revise the role of men. This evening will consider our endlessly malleable religious roles, as they are experienced in our places of worship, and in our homes. Change can be as challenging - and acceptance as elusive - within the schools of a
    single religion as it can be in the streets we share.  What do our religions (continue to) make of gender?

    For more information, email Marilyn Garson on margarson@gmail.com, or ring Dave Moskovitz on 027 220 2202.

    UK evangelist Mike Pilavachi is joining our Ministry Conference Family Camp at Rātana to kick us off on Sunday 15th April, and everyone in the diocese is welcome. Mike will be leading a time of worship, ministry and teaching, and this time is open to anyone who wishes to attend, whether they are in a ministry role in your parish or not.

    Please spread the word amongst our people, and encourage them to invite others along also. If you have had the privilege of hearing Mike speak at New Wine and other events, you will know that he is an engaging and motivating speaker, and both new and longer term Christians have experienced a Spirit-filled boost from Mike’s teaching.

    Venue information:

    This event will be held at Rātana Pā as part of Ministry Leaders' Family Camp.  As you drive into Rātana village on Rātana Road, take the second right onto Tairawhiti Street, which then turns into Taihauauru Street.

    The Wellington City Mission’s iconic Brown Paper Bag Collection, now in its 11th year, is happening this July.  On Thursday 21 June, their special Brown Paper Bag and donation insert will be featured in the Dominion Post, giving people the opportunity to donate cash or food items to help those who are in need this winter.  

    Every day, many Wellingtonians in need receive food parcels through The Mission’s Foodbank service. This can be a huge relief to a struggling family, easing their financial burden and helping them focus on paying bills and other expenses. Many people who are burdened with social isolation or homelessness also come to the Drop-in Centre every day for daytime shelter, care, a place of belonging, and, of course, a hearty meal. In the last financial year, the Mission provided over 3,500 food parcels from the Foodbank and over 23,000 meal servings in the Drop-in Centre! Help them continue to offer these services by supporting this year’s Brown Paper Bag Collection.

    This collection is something your youth group, women’s group, or your whole congregation can participate in – just simply choose if you would like to support by donating “The Money” or by filling “The Bag” with goods!

    If you choose “The Money”:

    You will be supporting by raising funds. Every $4 raised provides one healthy, nourishing meal serving for a person in need. Some fundraising ideas include: hosting a Brown Paper Bag dinner event, a plate decorating competition that costs $4 to enter, a Brown Paper Bag Sunday, or a games night themed with “The Money or The Bag”.

    If you choose “The Bag”:

    You will be supporting by collecting food items. Every bag filled with food supplements a struggling family’s groceries for one week. Some ways to collect the food items include: handing our special Brown Paper Bags out with your church newsletter, or setting up a Brown Paper Bag food collection box on a Sunday.

    You can take part in this collection any time from now until the end of July. If you would like to get involved please look out for the insert in the Dominion Post on 21 June, or get in touch with Sarah Thomas from the Mission on 04 245 0843 or enquiries@wgtncitymission.org.nz. We can then arrange to give you any material or further information that you need. Thanks for your support and generosity!

    The Vicar, Rev Nigel Dixon, has invited a leading New Zealand and international authority, Archbishop Sir David Moxon, to speak at a public meeting. His title is “The Theology of Sacred Space”. There will be time for discussion and questions.

    David grew up in Palmerston North and knows the building well, having been baptised there, sung in the choir and involved in leadership. He is the Patron of the project.

    We invite you to join us for lunch and then hear David, on Wednesday 27 June from 12 noon, in the Community Centre behind the old church.

    There is parking down the drive beside Square Edge and in the car park along the side of the Community Centre.

    Come hear from Christians who have campaigned for this plan, and ask them any questions you have. We'll ponder, pray and invite Jesus to influence our opinions. Then we'll have our say - in ways so creative the officials who receive them won't know what hit them!

    Victoria University's Religious Studies Programme invites us all to attend a public lecture by their St John's Visiting Scholar, Professor David Maxwell.

    Prof. Maxwell is the Dixie Professor of Ecclesiastical History at the University of Cambridge.  His lecture promises to be an outstanding one. In an increasingly globalised world, the global character of Christianity has come into much sharper focus. Christianity is being reshaped in profound ways globally, and also right here in New Zealand. In this context, formations and formulations of World Christianity have become extraordinarily significant and the object of intense debate. David is a superb scholar and communicator. His lecture should be of wide interest, and will be especially valuable for students.

    More information will be shared as it comes to hand.

    9:30am - 12:30pmAll Saints Conference Centre, 90 Hamilton Road, Hataitai, Wellington

    Dr Holly Catterton Allen is the co-author of Intergenerational Christian Formation - considered the leading book on intergenerational faith. It really is a huge honour to host her at All Saints Hataitai on the 21st July, so we would love to invite church leadership to come along.

    One of the most common questions our Children and Families ministry leaders seem to be asked at the moment, is “how do we do the intergenerational thing,” and spending three hours with Holly will help provide some of those building blocks.  Mission unit leaders from all over the diocese are welcome, and are encouraged to bring other ministry leaders from within their parishes and mission units.  This is not just for children's ministry leaders, it's for everyone!  The cost is $20 per person.

    You can download a PDF flier here, and you can link to the registration page here.  Also, here’s a link to a talk she did at an Intergenerate conference.

    This visit is co-hosted by the Anglican Dioceses of New Zealand, along with the Baptist, Presbyterian, and Salvation Army Churches, and Scripture Union New Zealand.

    Our very own Paul Carey and his songwriting collaborator have been working on an album based on the Lord's Prayer for several years, and now it's time to present their work.  Each piece is a song based on one phrase of the Lord's Prayer, and the whole album will be performed on the 10th of June in Taihape in the form of an evening prayer song event, so that audience members can just listen, or pray, or even sing along.

    For more information you can check out their Facebook page, or check out this event graphic.
