Amazing Race Camp was Amazing!

We had a fantastic weekend at our Parish Camp, held over the weekend at the Waipara Boys' Brigade Campsite. Young and old* joined together in an 'Amazing Race' themed weekend, with hilarious team challenges, fantastic food, chillin' out time and lots of laughter.

*Our youngest was 3 years old and our oldest attendee was in her nineties! 

Here are a few photos... a link to more will be posted soon.

Sharing God's Smile

Last Sunday we chatted about our first week back at school and kindy, and shared 'the best and worst' part of our week.

For some, the worst thing was getting homework, not being able to sleep-in, and for some it was hard having a friend or sibling move to another school.

The highlights of the week included playing with friends, getting to know new teachers and learning new games.

We talked about 'terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad days' and how to cope with them. We talked about cheering others up when they are having a bad day, and about sharing God's smile. 

Our Awesome Kids made up some decorated boxes which they filled with tasty treats. 

We shared our treats with the congregation, and brought smiles to many faces!

As these students carry these backpacks, may they be reminded of the love and care of this congregation that surrounds them each school day.”

Spring Challenge!

Just a reminder that there is no Awesome Time, CHYPS or FISH until we are back at Level One. We are thinking of you all and hoping that it w...
