1.  TODAY WE WARMLY WELCOME SIR LLOYD GEERING as our guest preacher.  Welcome too to his wife Shirley.  Welcome to all our visitors.  If you would like to know more about the Community of Saint Luke, including membership, or simply to join the mailing list, please fill out the blue “Welcome to St Luke’s” form (in pews) and put in the box on the screen bench.  You are all warmly invited to join us for tea and coffee after the service.

2.  TODAY AT 2pm.  Tim Carpenter is conducting the St Matthew’s Chamber Orchestra in a programme of Beethoven, Weber and Farquhar at St Matthews-in-the-City.

3.  TODAY FROM 4pm, SEA OF FAITH:  What's the difference between a humanist and an atheist?  Presented by the president of the Humanist Society of NZ, Sara Passmore.  Tea and coffee served from 4pm, the lecture and discussion from about 4.40pm.  Reviewer David Hines reckons humanists sound more positive: studying how to live a good life without religion rather than simply saying there is no god.  Sara has practised this belief by being on advisory panels about multi-faith education in schools in Britain.  She has also been nominated for the panel for the new Religious Diversity Centre in New Zealand, to help make sure non-religious people get a voice in this new programme.

4.  EXTERIOR STONEWORK MAINTENANCE is scheduled to begin Wednesday 24th May.  The work will be completed on the west transept gable wall after work access scaffolding has been erected. A few parking slots will be affected by the work area safety cordon, so please take extra care when using the west carpark (Newmarket side) and avoid if possible. The project is expected to be completed in about 4 weeks’ duration.

5.  VOX HUMANA, Sunday 28th May at 3pm.   The Three Mezzos are a group of four musicians (three mezzo-sopranos and a pianist), who have been entertaining audiences with their programmes of vocal variety for eighteen years. The trio has sung throughout the upper North Island and also on Norfolk Island. The singers are experienced performers with backgrounds in choral, opera, music theatre and small ensemble work.  Each mezzo also sings as an independent soloist.  Tickets $25 / $20 unwaged.  Proceeds go towards the St Luke’s organ restoration fund.

6.  TE REO.  Popular tutor Mischell'e Tohu returns to St Luke's to teach Te Reo and Tikanga Maori 102.  Six Tuesday evenings starting 6th            June at 7pm.  Please book with or sign the list at reception.  $60 for the course.  Learn waiata and karakia.  Hear about cultural traditions and protocols.

7.  INTERFAITH PILGRIMAGE.  Our next pilgrimage is to the Auckland Triratna Buddhist Community.  Come along for a pre-pilgrimage introduction on Sunday 11th June, visit the Centre on Monday 12th June, and join in the reflection meeting on 18th June.  Book with Pamela or sign yet another list at reception.  $10 to cover costs and koha to our hosts.

8.  WORKING BEE, Saturday 1st July.  Time yet to be confirmed but it will be a morning start.  If you are willing to help clean, tidy, or be part of the team serving a scrumptious morning tea, please add your name to the list at reception.  More details to follow.

9.  ACCOMMODATION NEEDED: CAN YOU HELP?  Rosalie Lockwood’s mature, responsible daughter urgently needs to rent an unfurnished, one-bedroom flat anywhere in Central to West Auckland.  If you have, or know of, a flat available now or in the next few weeks, please contact Helen on 021 379 133, email or Rosalie on 849 3492.

10.  FLOWER TEAM.  We are actively seeking people to join our flower arranging roster.  Flower are prepared weekly for the Sunday service, and when needed for weddings.  If you would like more information, please contact Pamela.
