Governance Council Snippets – November Meeting

Showers for Homeless People.   So far one person has availed themselves of this facility at Champion Road.   In December the need for this service to the homeless will be reviewed.

Kai with Love.   Sage is leading this community outreach whereby our church hall will be used as a collection depot on Wednesday afternoons for local people needing food parcels.  He hopes that it will start in a few week’s time.

Bequeath from the estate of the late Don McKenzie.   We have been advised of this and await further communication from the estate.

Holy Communion – change of date.   Governance Council has approved of a change of date for December Holy Communion so that it does not clash with the Whakatu Kids/Youth Group Breakup service.   New date is Sunday 8th December

Establishing a Sunday morning creche for small children.   The Governance Council has agreed to the idea of erecting a portable extra large play pen type of ‘fencing’ at the back of the worship centre so that young children can play there safely while being minded by church care-givers who will be rostered.

Advertising in the Nelson and Waimea Weeklies.   Governance Council is evaluating the value of  this and will discuss it further in December.
