    (Postponed from 3rd and 4th of May)

    The dictionary tells us that “minister” means to attend to, serve, support, sustain.  How are we called to minister in our daily lives, and in our whanau together?  How do we grow in our awareness of what it means to be partners with Christ in attending to, serving, supporting, and sustaining each other?

    EfM (Education for Ministry – Exploring Faith Matters) is one of the tools that our diocese affirms as a profound way to deepen and resource our discipleship together. Exploring faith matters, learning to think theologically, discovering what God is calling us to be and do, day by day, and doing this together, is at the heart of EFM.

    By building a community of honesty and trust where we can examine our own beliefs and practices, and their relationship to culture and the tradition of our Christian faith, EFM helps us to shape our ministry and effectiveness in journeying alongside the last, the lost and the least, engaging with the context in which we live with integrity, creativity and generosity.

    We have a number of EfM groups operating around the Diocese and could have more if we had enough mentors willing to facilitate.

    There has been one training day already this year, followed by this one, and one more to come.

    For more information about EFM, including registration form, flyers to print and contact details, check out movementonline.org.nz/efm.

    10am - 2pmSt Hilda's Anglican Church, 35 Cruickshank Road, Upper Hutt

    Rev Lance Lukin is to facilitate a suicide safeTALK training session for LivingWorks, an international suicide intervention organisation; in Upper Hutt.  There are two sessions available: this one in June, and a following one in July.

    New Zealand’s suicide rate continues to rise, and our youth suicide rates are some of the highest in the developed world.  Yet, ‘suicide’ is a word like cancer. We don’t like to say it, and talking about it makes us uncomfortable.  safeTALK provides training in how to talk about suicide safely and appropriately, in hopes of making suicide-safer communities.  This training is aimed at anyone who is keen to make a difference.

    Cost $75

    For more information or to make a booking, contact Lance on 022 620 2440.

    You can download the information leaflet here.  For more about LivingWorks and the safeTALK programme, click here.

    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.

    Contact Patricia Cooper on patricia@wn.ang.org.nz or visit movementonline.org.nz/refugee for more details.

    Jesus calls us to follow him, as a community of people journeying together.  How can we best support children as we walk alongside them, work with them and reflect Jesus in all we do? Discover how discipleship experienced in this way can grow lifelong faith.  Whether you are an experienced leader or just starting out there is something for you. Use our group discount and come as a team and make the most of everything you learn.

    Latest statistics would tell us that one third of all marriages within New Zealand end in divorce, and the majority of these divorces occur within the first five to nine years of marriage. Pre-marital education drastically reduces the potential for the issues that lead to divorce becoming a problem.

    Rev Lance Lukin will be running two sessions enabling individuals or couples to complete their training to be facilitators.  This session will be on the 22nd of June, whilst a repeat session will be held on the 27th of July.

    Over 4 million couples have taken the PREPARE/ENRICH Programme since it began in 1980.

    PREPARE/ENRICH helps couples:
    Identify strength and growth areas
    Explore personality traits
    Strengthen communication skills
    Resolve conflicts and reduce stress Compare family backgrounds
    Comfortably discuss financial issues Establish personal, couple, and family goals

    The next facilitator training will take place on:

    Saturday 22nd June 9am-4pm
