    Our Chrism services come at the end of our Lenten journey, and offer a perfect opportunity for our Lenten study groups to gather at one of three Chrism services, held in three locations throughout the diocese

    They are a chance for every member of our movement to gather and re-affirm our baptism vows, and for ordained clergy and the bishops to re-affirm the vows made at their ordination. It is also the time at which Bishop Justin and Bishop Eleanor bless the oil to be used in the coming year for anointing the sick, and for baptisms and ordinations.

    As we journey towards Easter, Chrism offers a reminder of our place in the church family: our joining together reminds us of our active role in being brothers and sisters in Christ as we recommit ourselves to our walks with Jesus.

    Clergy are invited to robe in alb and red stole.

    Wellington Cathedral of St Paul

    Every couple of months, a new intake of former refugee families arrive in Wellington where the New Zealand Red Cross works with them to settle them into their new homes.  Our movement works together with our Catholic brothers and sisters to collect household items, and during this intake period, to sort them into prescribed household lots.  This takes place on the Monday and Tuesday of each intake, starting each day with morning tea and introductions at 9:45am.  It involves checking items for appropriateness (like no toy guns et cetera), ensuring everything is there, and packing it up ready for collection.  It’s perfect if you’ve got time during the day and can manage a short burst of activity, once every couple of months (or just when you can manage it).  Morning and afternoon tea and lunch are provided.

    Our second Training Day event for the year will be held in two locations - firstly in Palmerston North, then two weeks later, (mostly) repeated in Wellington.  So you can not only choose which location you attend, but you can get more of your teams there.  Think of it as the perfect opportunity to ensure your teams are well-trained for ministry, and well-connected to the diocesan family.

    What are you thankful for this year?

    God has moved among us in so many ways – sometimes in ways we all see, yet sometimes in the smallest of ways that only a few of us bear witness to.  We encourage you to come to our Diocesan Thanksgiving and Ordination, and bring as many people from your mission unit as possible.  The wonderful “family celebration” will occur at Wellington Cathedral of St Paul on the 21st of November.

    More information will be available later in the year.
