It’s spring and Kirk Fair time again!

Thank God for bursting life, for greening leaf, for sign of spring’s sowing!

The traditional Kirk fair is being held on Saturday 12th October from 10am at the Church hall and grounds on Weld Street. 

Stalls will include the ever popular Baking, Produce, Plants, Collectables, Boutique and Fashion Accessories and Treasure Trove. Fresh scones and a cuppa will be available, and many fine prizes can be won with the raffle. 

We are looking forward as always to seeing lots of local friends and visitors at the Fair.   Come and have a break from rugby and Local Goverment politics!

Later this month we will be holding the AGM – reviewing the activities and achievements of the last year, and thinking about the year ahead. This is an opportunity to celebrate and thank everyone who has contributed to the life of our church – from our faithful minister the Rev. Dr Jim Veitch and office bearers, to everyone who plays their part in worship and pastoral care, and the work of looking after our buildings. We are a friendly and welcoming bunch. We meet in a spirit of openess and always leave having been challenged and uplifted.

A reminder about our special appeal just launched for financial support from the wider church family and community who value the presence of First Church and  the part it plays in this district.  A one-off donation or a regular monthly payment will be gatefully received. For further information please contact Pam Colenso 06 306 9503, email pmcolenso@xtra.co.nz     We really would like our buildings to be

“looking good”, smart and in good repair for our 150 years celebration in 2021 and we are still looking for reminiscences and any old photos of early days.
