This week, I also acknowledge and give gratitude to our worship leaders who have shared Sunday resources with our Connexion.

See: Lockdown Resources August 2021

Regardless of whether the Alert Levels change down, our next Sunday services will not all be 'back to normal'. Therefore I would ask people to share once again and email your worship links and resources to WendyK@methodist.org.nz by this Friday 2pm.

Every blessing to you and your family this week, to our border workers, our essential service workers, and our team of Five Million.
