The Presbytery Council has approved the Commissioners to General Assembly so now we just wait until we hear what to do next as far as the registration process goes. We will let the Commissioners know as soon as we know.
If your parish has recently got a new Presbytery Elder (since the last presbytery meeting in February), please let me know as the Moderator would like to formally welcome them to the presbytery at the Winter Presbytery meeting.
Did any Presbyterians in your parishes receive a Queen’s Birthday Honour this year? Please let Wayne Matheson, AES know at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!
Lastly, a little bit further into the future, but do SAVE the DATE for the CROSSWIND –Regional Prayer & Healing Service on Sunday 24th July, 7pm at Ellerslie/Mt Wellington –St Peter’s Presbyterian Church. It is a prayer and healing service… but much more than that… It will be again a time for people to come and encounter Jesus Christ -by the Holy Spirit, in worship, the gospel preached and in prayer and healing. Crosswind is based on John 3:7-8 and it is our hope that people might encounter the life giving wind of the Holy Spirit. Do encourage your parish to come along. Perhaps plan to have your regular Sunday evening gathering together with others from all over the presbytery instead?
