cropped-cropped-Rangitoto-Flower-546406ad_site_icon2.pngHere is this week’s North Pres News -3 Sept 2015. Please open it up, print it out if you like and share with your parish.
Thank you to all the parishes who have responded regarding the Recordkeeping Workshops. We still have space for more to attend either session so do think about who in your congregation would benefit from this. The meetings are on Wednesday or Thursday NEXT WEEK. More details are in the North Pres News.
Just yesterday the Northern Presbytery was delighted to attend the launch of the booklet “Justice & Action”, a resource produced jointly by Presbyterian Support and the Presbyterian Church through the PresCare partnership. Its call to action is directed towards two of the most enduring problems in our communities –family violence and child poverty. The booklet will soon be available for you and your parish and it is our hope and prayer that by reading the booklet, discussing it with others, we will be moved, inspired and equipped to ACT and SPEAK OUT in order to bring about lasting transformation. Copies will be available soon so keep an eye out for it.

“The local church is called to be at the heart of its community, serving and living as Jesus called us to. Only then can we see the world changed and the kingdom of God advance.”
