some thoughts from the

Church Property Trustees Newsletter - July 2017 with

Important information for all parishes...

Is the local church a community asset,
such that the community has a legitimate stake in deciding its future?

This is a question that has been at the heart of the long-running debate
over the future of the earthquake-stricken Christchurch Cathedral


 Alpine Presbytery 20th July Newsletter  2017

reminds us on the upcoming 

Alpine Presbytery Gathering  on the weekend Friday 6th October 
this time in Timaru.
Presbytery is hoping 
parishes can send a team as well as their official reps.

in previous letter 
 there is more on The 26th General Council of The World Communion of Reformed Churches 
which has formally joined an ecumenical statement
with Roman Catholics, Lutherans and Methodists
aiming to overcome divisions between Protestants and Roman Catholics
from the time of the Protestant Reformation. [on 5 July 2017J
