In Focus Webinar

Wednesday 5 May 7:30pm

We often talk about the Father and Son but don’t know what to do with the Spirit. Who is the Spirit? Why does the Spirit matter for how we live each day? Join us as we talk about the Lord and Life-Giver, the Holy Spirit, the under-stated but equally divine member of the Triune God; the person we know the least, who knows us best.

One-hour webinar with Carey’s systematic theology lecturer; Dr Christa McKirland.

Streamed live in the church lounge, please ensure that you arrive prior to 7:30pm.

End of Life Choice Act

In less than seven days New Zealanders will be voting on the End of Life Choice Act. This referendum is binding, the result will decided if the provisions in the act will become part of New Zealand’s legal framework.

Throughout the debate much of the conservative voice has been silenced and mocked. David Seymour argued in public meetings that one person should not have to suffer due to the moral choices of another. A subtle slight towards those of us who hold to the sanctity of life and death.

Yet the reality of living in community means we do this everyday! In fact as a team of 5 million we all ‘suffered’ a prolonged lock down and restriction of freedoms to protect those who are vulnerable in our society from the COvid19 virus. Our choices were restricted, and are still restricted to prevent harm to our most vulnerable.

This act will have incredibly detrimental effects on the care and well being of our most vulnerable. Please click on the link below to find out how you can encourage more people to engage in this important vote.
