Sunday the 30th June is Census Sunday at St Andrew's when we ask all members and adherents to stand up and be counted. This has come about at the suggestion of our Faith Builders who thought it would be a fun way to learn more about the family connections in our Church. Our goal is to have the church packed to the rafters! Come along and share the fun.
Last night (30 Jan 2013) we celebrated the ordination and induction of the Reverend Gary Mauga. The church was packed with Gary's family, friends and colleagues and, of course, our congregation. The service was led by the Rev. Fakaofo Kaio, Moderator of Northern Presbytery, and we enjoyed a sermon by the Rev Sun M Lee. Many thanks to all involved in making this such a joyous occasion.
Late last year our Ministry Settlement Board nominated Gary Mauga for the position of minister of St Andrews and in December the congregation voted overwhelmingly in favour of accepting the call. Gary is a recent graduate of Knox Centre for Ministry and Leadership. Gary's ordination and induction will take place on Wednesday 30th January 2013 at St Andrew's Church.
