Matariki

This morning we celebrated Matariki, with music and art. Our wonderful ukulele group, AbsolUKE, led the congregation in the Matariki Macarena (complete with actions) and we created some Star Jars and Starry Night paintings.

Check out the video from MatCH. Thanks to Izak and George for the filming and production.




Here is the prayer, which was read so beautifully by Bella:

Loving God,
You are an amazing God, and the stars remind us of how awesome you are. Thank you for loving us, for being our friend and never giving up on us.
Thank you for the special people in our lives, who have guided us, shaped us and loved us. Those who have encouraged us along the way and helped us to become the people we are today. We thank you God for what they have given to us - wisdom, guidance and love.
Help us to shine Your light and Your love into the world.
Amen


Make sure you check out the marvelous Matariki art in the Chapel Gallery!
