NOTICES FOR SUNDAY 10 SEPTEMBER 2017

2.  INTERFAITH PILGRIMAGE.  For those interested in learning about and experiencing something of the Universal Sufi Path of Hazrat Inayat Khan, our pre-visit meeting will be at St Luke’s on the 17th September at 11am, the visit itself will be on Thursday 28th September, leaving St Luke’s at 7 pm, and the debrief after the visit will be on October 1st at St Luke’s at 11 am.  Please sign the list at reception.

3.  MYSTERIES OF THE UNIVERSE II. Three talks from Ken Hulls which take place on 13th, 20th, and 27th September at 7.30pm, and following the first series in spring 2016.

-        Our Cosmic Habitat. Starting from the “Big Bang”, how it evolved so that life came to exist in at least one tiny corner of the universe, - or a universe.

-        The Micro-World. The way the very early universe evolved depended on how fundamental particles interacted. We take a glimpse at these and find no shortage of mysteries, and include a look at the so called God particle, - ‘found’ four years ago!

-        The Mystery of Time.  Einstein said time was an illusion, and that the past present and future all exist. We explore how he got to this understanding, starting from early thoughts on what time is and isn’t- or was and wasn’t, or will or won’t be

Please sign the list at reception.

10.  OFFERTORY COLLECTION.  During August, instead of the usual collection bags being passed around during the Offertory Voluntary, we had a collection/koha box available.  This was a trial period and the Worship Committee will now review it.  If you wish to comment upon, or make a suggestion about this, please email Kathryn Jones kjones@vodafone.net.nz

11.  CONCERNS PROCESS.  Arising from its workshop in July, Parish Council has produced a brief paper to clarify how to make known a complaint or concern.  PCANZ has a confidential complaints process.  In St Luke's foyer [next to the whiteboard], there is, on the noticeboard, a list of six people to independently advise and support anyone who wishes to make a complaint about a minister, office bearer, or church member.  For matters that are concerns, not complaints, the Parish Council paper outlines the process if a parishioner or member of the public has a parish-related concern about an individual[s] or committee.  This paper is on the screen bench.

12.  COLIN McCAHON: ON THE ROAD.  Inspired by Faith.  9 – 14 October, at Somervell Church.  Free entry.  www.somervell.org.nz/artweek
