2017 Anglican Life Rangiora Designed by Meltec
At Anglican Life Rangiora we are ordinary Christians from every walk of life. We experience problems, challenges and hurts just like other folk. However we know that a belief in God the Father, and his precious son Jesus enables us to cope better and know we are forgiven. We can change, heal, have a purpose and a hope in life eternal. Pastoral Care enables us to maintain a caring safe environment. The following are some of the services under the Pastoral Care umbrella. These are in addition to our Sunday services at St. John's, St. Martin's, St. Mary's, and St. Matthew's. We encourage you to use these services and prayerfully consider if you are gifted to help in one or more of these services.
SMALL GROUPS - We have a number of groups that meet weekly or fortnightly where members are growing to become more like Christ. Groups meet at night and daytime. We have groups of older people, young adults, men only, ladies only, mixed groups, and family groups. They all offer friendship, community, learning, laughter and try to help others. For more information see the brochure on small groups or contact the parish office.
CARE CHAIN - Keeping a neighbourly eye on those who are not cared for in one of the above small groups. Our vision is to have every member of our church family cared for and informed. Contact Linda Thompson 3128123 or 027 481 1155.
