Ministry Leaders’ Family Camp
El Rancho, 58 Weggery DriveWaikanae Beach, Wellington

Ministry Leaders’ Family Camp is a time of refreshing, teaching and reconnecting with friends and colleagues from around the diocese. It is for all key leaders of ministries within our movement, and their families. Our theme this year is ‘Ministering from Weakness’. The camp is open to all ministry leaders, their spouses and families

3 April

7pm to 8:30pm

Chrism Service - Wellington Cathedral
Our Chrism services come at the end of our Lenten journey, and 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 will 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.
