Dear Presiders and worship leaders
Titirangi and Tairua/Pauanui
both with churches named St Francis, and on their own initiative,
got together over the first weekend in March.
Eight folk from Titirangi were hosted overnight (in an Indaba way) by the folks of Tairua. They shared stories, had a workshop lead by Bishop Bruce Gilberd, shared meals, hospitality and communion together. In between, they wandered in the lovely Tairua village where the weather and the scenery were just beautiful. Titirangi plan to host Tairua in March 2020.
Well done Titirangi and Tairua/Pauanui!
