Our theme this year is: “Make a Difference: I can, You can, We can”  - “Mahi Rereke: Ka taea e au, Ka taea e koe, Ka taea e tātou”.We encourage pre-schoolers through to Year 8’s, as individuals or as a group, to respond creatively to this theme, as we seek ways to reach out in love and kindness. Please see noticeboard for more details.

Trinity Sunday
Romans 5:1-5

In Paul’s letter he draws a conclusion about the consequences of God’s deed in Christ. Because we have been acquitted and set right with God by faith, we are now at peace with God through the entire event of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. He has brought us freely into God’s presence to receive and to benefit from the power of grace so that we stand confidently before God and live courageously. We exult and celebrate in our guaranteed hope of participating in God’s glorious life and activity. We even exult and celebrate in our current (religiously caused) sufferings. We trust that they actually accomplish our gaining endurance, and this momentary endurance produces lasting character which leads to a hope that will not put us to shame. All this we trust because we have experienced God’s love through the Holy Spirit gushing into our lives.

John 16:12-15
In Jesus’ farewell instruction this is his fifth and final teaching about the coming Spirit. He says to his students that he has much yet to tell them but that at the moment they cannot endure everything. However, the Spirit of Truth (the Holy Spirit/the Advocate) will guide them into all truth. The Spirit will only communicate to Jesus’ believers what he hears from Jesus, and thus he will prepare them for what is coming (the immediate or distant future?). He will bring glory to Jesus by faithfully communicating from Jesus to Jesus’ believers. What he delivers to Jesus’ believers will ultimately be from God.
