Absent in 2020 due to ‘that virus’ Quiz Night returns in 2021 bigger and better than ever!
Saturday 22 May, 6.00 pm–10.00pm:
Contact Betsy Marshall (firstname.lastname@example.org) or sign up at a Sunday service to let us know if you (and the number of family members/friends) are planning to attend the Celebration Dinner and Quiz Night at the church on Saturday 22 May from 6.00pm to 10.00pm.
As everyone will be seated at round tables for eight, we are keen to ensure we have enough tables for everyone attending.
Also, please bring along a main, salad or dessert for six to eight people for a pot-luck dinner.
How wonderful it will be to get together after a year of Covid restrictions. Also, we look forward to having a brief presentation from our Church Treasurer about what will be needed to ensure our community continues to thrive this year.
Hope to see you on Saturday 22 May.

Craftivist Companions have completed our Living Wage Campaign. There is a poster on the notice board of some of our work, and there are some “graffiti” pieces hanging in the local neighbourhood. Have you spotted them?
Our current project is in support of the Tree Council. We are making 120 brooches with the theme of celebrating trees, one for each member of parliament. We will send them with a letter to appeal to them to act to protect our trees. If you would like to make a brooch please ask Kay, Corrine or Pien for some tips.
Even better, join us at 7.30 on Thursday evenings, at the church.
We invite people of all ages to join us for our intergenerational service:-
this Sunday, 18 April, at 10.00am at the church, to celebrate Earth Day.
The children will perform and lead us in a sing-along and there will be a few surprises — ways for us all to honour and celebrate our home planet. So come and join in the fun!

We have decided to hold regular Whanau/Family Gathering Days throughout
the year and invite you to join us. Unitarian spirituality is all about
connection and building community.
Our first Whanau Day was held this Easter Sunday, 4 April 2021 (see slideshow below). The whole congregation were invited to a nearby member’s home and in the park behind their house, to play, share food, music, conversation, and, of course, to hunt for eggs.
Great fun, great weather, great company, a great day was had by all.
Coming up soon we will have an intergenerational service in honour of Earth
Day on 18 April at 10 am. All are welcome. Please join us!
The Quiz on wheels had too few participants to proceed today (Saturday 20th March 2021). We will offer it again later in the year.
The Quiz is a team game, there are questions and quests for all ages. Learn something of the history of Northcote/Birkenhead, be wowed by its beauty, and be moved by the love stories that feature along the way. The quest will take about two hours, and we will finish with a shared afternoon tea at one of the lovely beaches. If it is too cold and wet for that, Rachel and Clay have offered their home, as our tea party spot. Details will be given on the day.
