“We, the young, are deeply concerned about our future. Humanity is currently causing the sixth mass extinction of species and the global climate system is at the brink of a catastrophic crisis. Its devastating impacts are already felt by millions of people around the globe. Yet we are far from reaching the goals of the Paris agreement.
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.
Join us for our first Whanau Gathering for 2021 on Easter Sunday 4th April, after the Sunday Service.
This is an intergenerational gathering. We welcome children and people of all ages to attend. Please invite your friends and their children to join us.
There will be a craft project, an Easter egg hunt – children will hunt for plastic eggs and then exchange them for “real” chocolate ones, and we ask everyone to bring picnic food ready to eat for a shared pot-luck lunch..
