A Time for Everything!
I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God.
Eccl 3:12-13

Today we are remembering our ANZAC fallen and our guest speaker is Air Commodore Richard Lennon, CSC. Commander Air Mobility Group, Senior Australian Defence Force Officer-Richmond.

We are also acknowledging the families of our service men and women who are being presented their ancestors medals from WWI and WWII which for some reason were either never received by the Veteran or were lost.


Erina Morunga, Filipa Payne, Kiri Barber, Roger Reeves and Butch Barber drove around Australia (17,000 + kms) to raise awareness and education about the Section 501 of the Australian Migration Act that impacts on our people residing in Australia. This is an important kaupapa and the New Zealand Labour MP Kelvin Davis was present at the Sydney Launch.

Today Kiri & Butch Barber share their experiences,their stories and the generosity of those they met on their travels. The passion of Erina, Filpa and Roger and the injustices.

Visiting Clergy

Rev Canon Robert Kereopa, Executive Officer of the Anglican Mission Board in New Zealand, visited with us at Te Wairua Tapu. Especially significant was the work the Anglican Mission Board is doing in Fiji after the devastation of Cyclone Winston.
