Volunteers needed Student Christian Movement Otago Book Exchange
Kia ora, calling out for wonderful volunteers for the 88th annual SCMO book exchange. By volunteering you are signing up to serve and connect with students, spend time around second hand books and raise money for Rape Crisis, A Rocha and SCMO. People of all ages and experiences sincerely encouraged to give a couple of hours, once or more, as they are able from 20 February to 2 March. Email or text me, Rachel Tombs:
Knox Young Adults Group
Our Knox Young Adults Group is starting up again for the year! Immediately after the morning service on 4 March there is an open invite to meet at Governors Cafe for a coffee (drinks on us!). We will also be starting up our fortnightly small group discussions that week so join the facebook page (Knox Young Adults) or text Jordan Redding on 027 428 5234 for more information. Looking forward to meeting you!
Easter Gifts for the Otago Corrections Facility
We are again arranging to prepare Easter gifts for the men at the Otago Corrections Facility. We make a package with a card, about 3 small Easter eggs and a palm cross. Once the gifts have been blessed at the Palm Sunday Service, they will be given to the prison chaplain to be distributed. These gifts have been well received, and are an effective contact between Knox church and those in prison.
So we are again asking for the SMALL Easter Eggs, or money to purchase them, and for helpers to make the Palm Crosses, and to package the gifts. Please help on any of the following dates, or take your donations of money or small eggs to the office before Tuesday 20 March.
Friday 16 March 5-8pm Gathering Area – Making Palm Crosses. Please come for the evening or for any of this time you are able. We will share a meal at 6pm, tea and coffee available. If you wish to find out how to make them please come along. All welcome.
Thursday 22 March 9am-12pm Gathering Area – Packaging of the cards, Easter eggs, and palm crosses. This is a fun “production line” operation, so we need as many hands as we can. Please call in any time (bring some lunch if you like or something to share for morning tea). All very welcome.
Please contact Janet Sim Elder or Janet Wishart for details, or take your donations to the office.
Yoga@Knox run by Jacqui on Tuesdays 8-8:50am in the Gathering Area. All are welcome to join in. Wear comfortable clothing, bring a towel to lie on, or a yoga mat if you have one, and a smile.
