Service this Sunday, 20th January: 10am at St Michael's, Elliot Street. The wedding at Cana - with the Revd Dr Kelvin Wright. Everyone welcome. Meanwhile, Jo is around in the parish as usual, until Thursday morning. Here's a depiction of the wedding feast -from Amiens Cathedral, in France. You can catch Jo talking about this on OAR radio church coming up this Sunday morning, too.

This Sunday we are celebrating Epiphany - getting ready for visitors in the year ahead. 10am at St Michael's, Elliot Street Andersons Bay, with Jo. Everyone welcome; wise men and women, toddlers and grandies, and everyone in between.

Proof that God has a sense of humour; after thinking about Jesus as the Key of David for half of Advent, I discover that the key to the Vestry cupboard has gone missing - and have to raid the secret stash of spare wafers for Communion supplies for Sunday morning! Just thankful I didn't preach on O Sapienta instead. Post-Christmas brain missing would be much worse, I suppose.

[12/29/18]   We’re at St Michael’s at 10am this morning, folks.

Merry Christmas everyone! Crib service at St Nicholas, Waverley Christmas Eve 4pm. Midnight Mass at St Michael's Elliot Street at 11pm. Christmas Day services 9.30am St Nicholas, and 10am at Macandrew Bay school in the library.

We had a great time on Sunday doing weed release at Raynbirds Bay, followed by an Advent service (centered around trees!) with combined churches from the Otago Peninsula. Thanks to all who came along, it made for a lovely final event for the year. Happy Christmas to all!

With the vicarage receiving a lick of paint and a couple of new carpets in preparation for new tenants moving in this weekend, we're in the DIY mood! Quiz up at St Nick's hall THIS FRIDAY night at 6pm. Bring some questions where the answers must begin with either a D, I or Y. Bring them along, form a team, hand in your questions, have some supper with us (soup and rolls provided) - and plenty of raffle money to be in with a chance to win one of the fab grocery boxes. A fun Friday evening, and raising money for Missions in the process, in the best DIY way possible. Let me know if you would like to come.

Thank you everyone for coming to support Lee, Cody and Jesse, and for making this morning such a joyful occasion. What a wonderful day!

The massive cake is on order, the fizz is in the fridge, and the Sunday School cupboard packed with angel craft activity materials. We're celebrating this weekend! Come and join us as we party with the angels (if not quite like them)- for the Feast of St Michael and all angels. Cody and his brother Jesse, and Lee are being confirmed by Bishop Steve - and the boys will be making their First Communion. All this and some truly angelic singing from our Tongan Wesleyan friends who are joining us! Kickoff at 10am at St Michael's, Elliot Street, Andersons Bay.

Happy St Aidan's Day! Thanks to everyone who helped make our service happen this morning. And if you want to know how to make a labyrinth using some sand, a stone or a bucket of stones, or pretty much any material that comes to hand- just ask Micah!

[02/17/18]   A HUGE BIG THANK YOU to everyone who supported the quiz on Friday night! You all helped to raise $360 for the mission fund and the emergency response to the Tongan cyclone relief effort. We are so grateful.

[01/30/18]   Welcome back friends! Thanks to everyone who was able to support our bed/wheelchair pushing last Sunday at Dunedin Hospital Chapel. It was lovely to see so many parishioners there. The patients REALLY appreciated being able to attend the service, and the way in which they were be-friended by the volunteers during the morning. I know we all appreciated Vivienne's message, and the music too.
This coming Sunday we will be worshipping together (10am at St Michael's) as a parish. We hope to see many of you there. But before that, we have our Community Storytelling night on Friday, up at St Nicholas in the hall. Choose an object from home - anything you can carry easily, and come and tell us about it - who gave it to you/how you came by it, why it is special to you or your family. We'll have a shared meal together, and look forward to hearing the stories. See you soon!

[01/23/18]   Hi everyone, our first parish service of the year is being held this Sunday...out of the parish! It's our turn to enable Dunedin Hospital patients to attend the hospital Chapel service this Sunday, so we'll be meeting at 9.30am for bed/chair pushing before the Eucharist in the chapel (taken by Jo) at 10.30am. Please do join us if you are able. Everyone welcome.

[12/31/17]   Worship services in the parish 7th January: St Michael's & St Nicholas joint service at St Philip's Presbyterian church, Belford Street, Waverley. Jo Fielding is taking the Communion service, which starts at 10am. Everyone is welcome.

[12/31/17]   Happy New Year to you all. It was lovely to see so many of the extended parish family and friends gathered together to celebrate New Year's Eve and Jo's 50th birthday. Sincere thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make it such a happy occasion.

Last week we rang the bell at St Michael's to help announce the arrival of this year's first albatross at Tairoa Head. By the end of the week we were celebrating the ordination & installation of our new Bishop Steven. However we aren't putting the bunting away just yet as this Sunday we are still partying! St Michael and all Angels feast this week: 10am at St Michael's, Elliot street, with Bp Steve presiding and preaching. Come and meet our new Bishop, and Lorraine, and help us celebrate. Morning tea afterwards (angel cake and dragon fruit!)
