Go Deeper this Lent
Like previous years, there is an invitation to join a small group over the season of Lent for a bible study. The study series will take place over five weekly sessions beginning in the week of 1st March. There will be a number of groups at different times of the day and different days of the week to suit your availability. This year’s study series is written by Craig Mitchell, the former National Director of Formation, Education, and Discipleship in the Uniting Church of Australia. Each study delves into the bible readings for the following Sunday. To join a group or simply to find out more, fill in your details on the clipboards at the back of the church or contact Jordan Redding
The walking together group will meet at the Knox car park after church on Sunday 23 February after the Congregational meeting & morning tea. We will take a picnic lunch and drive to Warrington Domain for lunch and a walk of 60min to 90min along the beach. If time allows we could have afternoon tea at Blue Skin Cafe. All very welcome. For car-pooling telephone Glyn Smith, or David and Janice Crerar.
Women’s Group meeting

BBQ in the Park
On 1 March after worship we will be having a BBQ in the Park beside Knox. This is a time for welcoming and interacting with people new to Knox or Dunedin. Please invite friends. If the weather is inclement, we will postpone to the following Sunday. If you would like to help please speak with Lyn Revie, Marion Christie or Marita Jowett.
Help needed with choir suppers
Our choir has a supper break at their Wednesday practices, and a roster of congregation members helps by setting up, serving and clearing up. Our pool of volunteers is shrinking and we are looking for members who are happy to help the choir in this way. It takes about an hour from around 6:45pm. Contact Lee Somerville if you can assist.
