Thought for the week

Thought For The Week 14 April

There are times in life that we are turned inside out and upside down. Everything seems to happen at once, and, somehow, in the middle of the whirlwind, we try to cope and make sense of it all. The arrival of a new life.  A significant birthday.  The passing of a dearly loved friend. As […]

Thought For The Week 7 April

As many of you may know I’m a pretty keen cyclist and I’ll jump at any excuse to get on my bike, especially if it means riding the great trails in our region. Last weekend our parish youth group had a Bike Camp which involved tenting on Friday night at Lake Pukaki (it was somewhat […]

Thought For The Week 31 March

This week we have been joining in the Matthew 25 Challenge from World Vision, which invites us to enter in to the parable of the sheep and the goats, to experience the lives of the least and the lost. It is easy for us to read the words, and to agree with the ideas, but […]

As we move into the second week of Lent, we are challenged to consider our place in the world.  Each of us is called and cared for, chosen and loved by God. Jesus took his journey to the cross knowing well what the cost would be, yet also knowing what it meant for God’s love […]

Forty days without food, […]

Thought For The Week 3 March

Earlier this week I joined in with the wonderful work that our Rhythm Kids engage in with young families at the Trinity Community Centre.  There was fun, energy, and that sense that something truly special was happening. Later on in the week, I had the privilege of leading a worship service at the Croft. There […]

Thought For The Week 24 February

Welcome to our services of worship today. It’s hard to believe we are at the end of February and this is our first ‘normal’ pattern of services at each site for the year. Last weekend Catherine and I attended the Alpine Presbytery gathering in Greymouth. These gatherings are held twice yearly and are a mixture […]

Thought For The Week 17 February

It’s lovely to be back at Trinity this week, after the summer and the extended programme of works both outside and inside the church. Over the last couple of years we have achieved so much in the stewardship of our buildings thanks to the hard work and dedication of too many people to mention. I […]

Thought For The Week 10 February 2019

Welcome to our service of worship this week. I have really enjoyed our combined services over the summer break including the 2 extra weeks as the work continues at Trinity. I know many of you are looking forward to getting back into the normal routine and familiar places and the style of worship we are […]
