Please Stay Safe

If you are feeling unwell stay away from work, school, church or large gatherings.
Cover coughs or sneezes with disposable tissues (please dispose of them carefully – do not leave lying around) or clothing
Do not shake hands, hug or kiss when greeting or leaving - try a smile, a wave, a small bow.
Wash and dry hands regularly, wash hands using water and soap for 20 seconds then dry your hands thoroughly.
Check on others (use the telephone first).
Be kind to each other.

Office Hours

The Parish Office is open, Tuesday -Friday 10am—4pm. Office hours may fluctuate due construction work. If you’re intending to come into the office, it may be best to call first to see if the office is open.

Conference 2020

 With consideration to the impact of Covid-19, the decision was made to delay a full MCNZ Conference until 2021. LNIS was to host the Conference this year, and will continue to be the host Synod for 2021.
However, a reduced Conference will happen in 2020, with only designated attendees (approximately 50 people) to attend to procedural matters, and any specific items of business that have previously been sent to and discussed by August Synods and Hui Poari. The Induction of the new Presidential Team and Ordinations will occur. There is intended to be live-streaming opportunities to watch these events from afar.

No Parking

Please note there are no visitors parks available on the Taranaki Street side.  Do no park infront of the gates, Monday to Saturday. This is loading zone with trucks arriving that need access. Control of this space has been given over to LT McGuiness. They will tow or block you in.

Volunteers and Working Bee

The office is looking at possible jobs for a volunteer to do. We will also be looking at having a working bee originally planned in April. This is planned for the end of July or August. We will keep you informed.

Financial Assistance for Fiji

David Bush, General Secretary of the Methodist Church of New Zealand, received a letter from the Methodist Church in Fiji asking for Financial assistance following Cyclone Harold which caused significant damage on February 20th. If you would like to donate, please contact the office and we will give you the information.

CWS Coronavirus Emergency Appeal

CWS has launched their Coronavirus Emergency Appeal to help their partners who are close to their communities. They have distributed food and medical supplies to people with no resources. Many are now in lockdown but they are keeping in touch, sharing news, correct medical advice and offering support.
In refugee camps and crowded homes or neighbourhoods, there is nowhere to self-isolate. Many people already lack clean water and soap. They have limited access to medical care or reliable information.
Donations to the Emergency Appeal will be used to buy personal protective equipment for staff, emergency food parcels, including canned food and hygiene vouchers, counseling sessions and feed for small cattle herds.
More information, including how to donate, can be found on the CWS website
https://cws.org.nz/what-we-do/emergencies/coronavirus-emergency-appeal/

Wellington Curtain Bank

We upcyle pre-loved curtains and provide them to low income families and individuals in the Wellington region.
We know that many families, especially those living in rental properties cannot afford to buy quality curtains. This is where we come it. We want to help.
If you have a Community Services Card or a SuperGold Combo Cardholder living under your roof, we may be able to give curtains.
Donating to the Curtain Bank
The Wellington Curtain Bank needs preloved curtains or rolls of fabric to turn in to double-layered curtains for families in need. What is preloved? Preloved means you loved them once, but not anymore. Preloved means you’d feel proud giving them to someone else. Call us: 0508 78 78 24 (freephone), or 04 385 0500 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., Office hours: Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 4.30pm

DCM—Reconnecting after lock-down

This month we enjoyed a very special day on the DCM calendar. Our Matariki Seasonal Kai is the one time when DCM kaimahi (staff) and taumai sit down together – to enjoy a hangi at Te Wharewaka o Pōneke. Always a time to connect before the dark days of winter, to remind our taumai that we are there to support them and for them to commit to being there for one another – but this year it has been extra special. After a long period when we have not all been able to get together, or to sit close to one another, this was a very, very special day. Big thanks to the whānau of John Tristram who make this meal possible – what a brilliant way to celebrate the life of a man who had such a big heart for our taumai.
So many people support our work to end homelessness in many different ways. This is why our tagline is “Together we can end homelessness”. You can read some of their stories https://www.dcm.org.nz/support-dcm
Thank you for your support.

Towel Roster

There won’t be anyone on towel roster, all towels will be washed at the Laundromat.
We welcome any donations to help us with washing of the towels.

Music for Worship Lay Preachers’ Workshop:

The event planned for 21 March 2020 has been postponed.
