Now Labour Weekend is behind us and summer days are ahead, here’s hoping we can all enjoy the long warm days with freedom of movement and good health,  appreciating all the good things and the beauty that is around us here in the Wairarapa. 

With this verse we wish our freshly elected government well: 

If we would share with others the way we choose to live

If justice and compassion inspired us all to give,

We would not need to worry that truths do not agree

for all could live together in love and harmony

The  Kirk Fair is being held in the Town Hall on Saturday 21st  November – look out for posters round town, and make a date to “come to the fair”.

There will be all the usual stalls: baking, produce, plants, collectables, boutique and fashion accessories, books and treasure trove. This year we will have a special stall for household linen and bedding, and general household contents.

As we approach the end of this very different year for everyone, we at First Church have been examining what we stand for, and how we can better show this in our community: caring and accepting differences, making a good difference to people’s lives, connecting with our community and creating a welcoming and non-judgmental space where everyone is heard and respected. In this secular world we realise that we have to be responsible for ourselves, for our neighbours and now, with increasing urgency, for the Earth – and always keeping alive the values that come out of the Christian tradition.
