UU Update

Although NZ has come down to level 2 on the government Covid-19 response scheme, Auckland Unitarians will continue to meet by Zoom rather than face-to-face for the immediate future, and our building will remain closed to outside groups. Read here for more detail on that.

We’ll be hosting a Daily Virtual Morning Tea via the Zoom platform – link below – at 11.00AM each day, no formal structure, just a chat for whoever turns up.

We’ll be hosting a more formal Sunday Morning Tea, via the Zoom platform at 11.00AM Sunday 7th June, and each week after that for as long as necessary. Follow the link below and you will be prompted to sign up (Free) and download the app, then, at 11.00AM Sunday Join the meeting. but don’t forget to pour your coffee or tea first. If you have a chalice at home you might light it.

Here is the format: Clay will open with some thoughts and maybe a reading. Then, much like our time for joys and concerns, you will be invited to share anything you are celebrating in your life or anything troubling you. Then there will be time to have a conversation. When it seems appropriate I will offer closing words. We may be separated from each other, but we need not be disconnected.

Seeking youth group builder/leader

Auckland Unitarians are looking for a leader to create and lead a youth group in our community.

Our vision is that in these times of high anxiety around climate change, increasing inequality and racial tensions, that our community is able to stand as a source of hope and spiritual inspiration and support. We believe that for young people in Auckland, there is a need for such a community

We would be able to provide a curriculum, or the youth leader could develop their own, as long as it was in line with Unitarian–Universalist principles. The group would be expected to meet in the church building in Ponsonby, on a weekly or fortnightly basis.

If you are interested, or know of anyone who might be suitable for this role, please email us at youthgroup@aucklandunitarian.org.nz
