New Wine 18-22 January 2024. Save the date. January is all about family and fun and chill time and … festival! There’s no better start to the year than heading off to New Wine for 5 fun filled days to celebrate this wild Christian life. The youth will party, the kids will play, the adults will relax but whatever your age we’ll be worshipping, learning and connecting with God again. Like every good party everyone’s invited. Join us at New Wine. An all age festival where many voices worship the One.

The Diocese is calling for volunteers for refugee resettlement in Wellington. There is a need for quality small appliances, towels, and bedding (duvets, sheets, blankets, protectors). In addition, donations are much appreciated, and can be deposited into the Diocese account with a reference, or through our website: www.anglicanmovement.nz/donate.
Anyone wanting to be involved on an ongoing basis can volunteer through their parish. Volunteers gather donations or fundraise to pull together a collection of household items, which can either be new or second hand. Another parish, then sets up these items in the house that they family will be moving to. Anyone interested in donating items or volunteering through their parish can speak to Refugee Support Coordinator Phil McCarthy on 021481204 .
Another option for people wanting to be involved with the settlement process is to volunteer directly with the Red Cross. With full training is provided. Contact Aileen Davison email@example.com if you would like to volunteer with the Red Cross.
