    Service of Lament for the Housing Crisis - Strathmore, Wellington

    3:00 pm27 Strathmore Avenue, Strathmore, Wellington

    Churches in southern Wellington 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 - Palmerston North, Lower Hutt, Porirua 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.  Our short service will include stories, songs and reflection, followed by afternoon tea together - bring a plate to share.

    All welcome - we look forward to you joining us!

    3pm, Sunday 27 August
    27-33 Strathmore Ave
    Bring a plate to share.
