Notices – March 2018

…WORLD DAY OF PRAYER – 2 nd March 2018
The local World Day of Prayer service was held at St Luke’s Methodist
Church : a joyous celebration on the theme: All God’s creation is
very good! A table covered by a green cloth in the front of the
church with tropical fruits and brightly coloured flowers represented
the natural bounty of Suriname. Many photographs gave us an insight
into life in Suriname.
Women from St John’s Anglican Church, St Mary’s Catholic Church,
the Baptist Church, St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, St Aidan’s and
St Luke’s took part in the presentation.
The service had been put together by the women of Suriname and
the different ethnic groups were introduced to us by seven women
>the indigenous Arawak inhabitants of Suriname
>the Maroons, descendants of enslaved Africans
>the Chinese who were brought in as agricultural workers
> the Creoles mixed race descendants of Europeans and Africa
> the boeroes, descendants of the Dutch farmers who came from the
>the Indians who came as indentured labourers and
> the Indonesians who came as indentured labourers.
Another presentation showed how plastic is polluting the seas. Each
person present was given a little green sea-turtle card on which to
write a personal commitment to make a contribution to stop
polluting the earth.
The collection proceeds this year go to the Council of Protestant
Churches in Nicaragua; the Bible Society in Suriname and the
Interchurch Council for Hospital Chaplaincy in New Zealand.
A finger lunch afterwards brought a delightful morning of worship to
a conclusion. August 2017 Page ? of ? 10 17

Trust (Iona Close)
We’re looking for some more volunteer Trustees (unpaid)
to join our small group to help oversee the running of
the Iona Close Retirement Village next door to the
church.We have 4 meetings per year and the rest of the
correspondence is done via emails, so having access to a
computer is a must.
We need someone who isn’t afraid of putting their hand
up to help with projects that arise or to oversee a small
area to help with the running of the complex.
Most of the time there is very little to do on a day to day
basis but would love someone not afraid to join sub-
committees when big projects come up like the
refurbishment of a unit.
It this sounds like YOU then please feel free to contact
our Chairman,
Tim Wood
Mob: 021 784 472
or any of the other Trustees.

Grace Notes March 2018

Greetings to all.
Edith. What a busy December we had and how nice to have Mary and
Joseph back with us during Advent.
January saw my grandson Baxter (18) off to Queenstown to start his
2-year training in the “Adventure Tours and Management” course. He
says it is full on and he is enjoying it . Grand daughter Grace
celebrated her 21st while camping at Russell.
Back in Auckland I had fun with family discovering ‘roof top’ bars
downtown – great place to watch cruise ships departing. Another
world for Grandma…….
A visit to Tauranga with old friends was a chance to see Connie who
had her sister and husband visiting from Korea. She looked well and
sent greetings to all at St. Aidan’s. She is enjoying her church and her
golf is improving!!
ANNIVERSARY DAY at the Viaduct was up to expectations – a beautiful
day, cruise ship ‘Viking Sun’ in; hundreds of paddlers racing their
dragon boats in the viaduct harbour;, the tugboat race and antics at
the end to entertain us all, followed by the start of the classic A-class
keeler race close by Queen’s wharf! The warship sailed with its
luncheon guests out into the harbour and Westpac helicopter
performed a demonstration rescue for us right there.
A spectacular day – buskers entertaining the large crowd and visitors
from Scandinavia enjoying the market at the Cloud.
A great start to the year – hopefully lots more swims – perhaps a little
cooler so that everyone can enjoy it.
and some cute sayings from the kids….
1. Samson was a strong man who let himself be led astray by a
Jezebel like Delilah.
2. Samson slayed the Philistines with the axe of the Apostles.
3. Moses led the Hebrews to the Red Sea where they made
unleavened bread which is bread without any ingredients.
4. The Egyptians were all drowned in the dessert. Afterwards
Moses went up on Mount Cyanide to get the ten ammendments.
5. The first commandment was when Eve told Adam to eat the
6. Moses died before he ever reached Canada. Then Joshus
led the Hebrews in the battle of Geritol.
