Hal will also be speaking at Mairangi Presbyterian Church, 10 Penzance Road, at 11.30am, with the topic “In the Beginning was the Meal”.  Cost $10.  Bring your own lunch.

6.  CONSULTATION ON MISSION AND MINISTRY.  In November we will be offering three opportunities for parishioners to come together to share views about what we could do/offer in future, what has been good in the past, and what we could do better.  This will significantly help Parish Council as we launch into 2018.  We are calling this ‘Consultation on Mission and Ministry’.  In order that we hear from as many people as possible, there will be two after church discussions [11am on November 4th and 19th], and one mid-week discussion [7.30pm November 14th].  As with our recent consultation on pews/chairs, the intention is that everyone has the opportunity to attend one of these discussions.

8.  FAURÉ REQUIEM – REMEMBERING PASSCHENDAELE.  Saturday 4th November, 7-9pm, St Matthew-in-the-City.  The programme featured is Gabriel Faure's beautiful Requiem, the so-called 1893 chamber version, in a masterful adaptation by John Rutter.  The Aorangi Singers open with the divine Miserere Mei Deus by Gregorio Allegri, followed by Mozart's dramatic Symphony No. 39 in E-flat major.  To open the second half, the profoundly moving aria "Erbarme dich" from the St Matthew Passion. 

Tickets available through Eventfinda
