This Sunday it is both an honour and a privilege to welcome young people from across the city to join us for a Youth Service in their Cathedral. Our thanks go out to the hard working and energetic team from the Anglican Youth Movement who have thrown everything in to make all this possible.
Stunning photos by Ehsan Hazaveh, telling the stories of refugee background workers in Wellington, will be displayed at Wellington Cathedral of St Paul for at least two weeks. The exhibition is a collaboration between Changemakers Refugee Forum and the Living Wage Movement Aotearoa.
In July we are welcoming the Anglican Youth Movement as they launch a Sunday evening Youth Service experiment. They are hoping to bring youth groups from all over the city for a new Youth Service project that will run through July and August. The hope is to see if there is a good take up for young people to come to a regular youth service in our Cathedral. The first service will be on 7 July.
This coming Sunday (28 April) we will be thanking and farewelling Simon Winn. After the service we will be holding a parish lunch followed by our AGM. Please note there is no evening service on Sunday.
In February the Salvation Army held their State of the Nation address in the Loaves and Fishes Hall. This year’s report Are You Well? Are We Safe? takes a well-being approach to considering our social progress as a nation. It looks at the differences between those of us who are doing okay and the most vulnerable New Zealanders.
Wellington choirs are joining together this Friday night at Wellington Cathedral of St Paul for a free performance of Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace as a response to the Christchurch mosque shootings last week.
