    Service of Lament for the Housing Crisis - Porirua

    12:00pm - 1:00pmCnr Ixion Lane and Castor Cres, Cannons Creek, Porirua

    Porirua Anglicans will hold a service of lament on empty Housing New Zealand land. This is an opportunity to collectively mark our sorrow at our society’s failure to ensure all New Zealanders have a home.

    Lament services will also take place in other areas - Strathmore, Lower Hutt, Palmerston North and Central Wellington. We will gather on empty HNZ land as a symbol of our society’s inaction while fellow kiwis struggle without homes.

    Lament is a centuries-old practice to acknowledge grief as one step towards healing and restoration. This will be a short, creative involving prayer and pikelets!

    All welcome - we look forward to you joining us!

    12pm, Sunday 27 August
    Corner of Ixion Lane and Castor Cres, Cannons Creek, Porirua
    Bring pikelets to share.
