St Michael and All Angels Newlands
Welcome! The community at St Michael's seek to do life together, sharing in fellowship, learning from and encouraging each other. We get together to worship every Sunday at 10am, and are also delighted that the Poneke Pastorate has regular Tikanga Māori te reo services at St Michael's on the fourth Sunday of the month at 11.30. We'd love for you to join us.
Wednesday 17 April - Contemplative Prayer, 7.30pm
An evening of guided meditation and contemplation.
Come and experience a deeper form of prayer, centred on Christ and the gifts he gives, the events of Easter which are so central to our faith
Thursday 18 April - Maundy Thursday - Last Supper service & vigil, 7pm
Join us as we remember the last supper Jesus shared on the night before he died. This is a reflective service with foot-washing, anointing and observance of the last supper, and will be followed with stripping the church and an overnight vigil - you are welcome to come and participate in as much or as little as you wish, as we watch and wait with Jesus.
If you wish to join in the vigil, please sign up for an hour-long slot, from 9pm to 9am.
Friday 19 April Good Friday -a service of seven lessons and laments, 9.30am
A short reflective service, following the seven last words Jesus spoke from the cross, with reflections and songs for each of the seven words. This is followed by hot cross buns at the vicarage.
