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!
Easter egg hunt, activities, shared pot-luck picnic lunch 12 noon – 3pm Easter Sunday 4th April.
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..
