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.
Craftivism is a movement in which people come together to create pieces of handwork which reflect our desire for a better world. These craft pieces can be sent as messages to people in positions of power, or left in strategic places as pieces of “graffiti “. In the process of making, we enjoy the companionship of fellow dreamers.
Our Christmas Eve was a little different this year.
At 6.00 pm we held “A Christmas for all ages”. An inter-generational service featuring and focusing on our children. Those who didn’t like to drive at night and who normally forgo the later service found this a fun and joyous alternative.
At 8.00 pm we held our traditional candlelight service followed by a festive Christmas supper. This service was live streamed to the interweb, see below:-
Come join us to celebrate at the beginning of our New Zealand summer at the height of the light!
At the church, 1a Ponsonby Rd Friday, 18 December, 7.30–9.30pm
Dances to glory in the ONE LIGHT within all that is symbolised by the zenith of our full-shining sun at this special time of year … We gather to magnify the radiance within as well, sometimes called “Christ Consciousness” or “Buddha consciousness” or “Krishna consciousness” and known in many other names and forms.
This is a koha event (to support the continued outreach of these events) supported by the Auckland Unitarian Peace and Social Justice Committee.
RSVP to Sally Mabelle 021 0222 8782 or via form below.
The Auckland Unitarian Church is an open, progressive and welcoming faith community. We walk diverse spiritual paths to find purpose and meaning in our lives, but we are united in our belief in the inherent worth and dignity of every person.
Whatever your spiritual journey, you are welcome here.
Rev. Clay Nelson is our minister. Some Sunday sermons are delivered by members and guest speakers.
