KAPITI UNITING PARISH
As our name suggests, the parish lies within the lower North Island's Kapiti Coast, named from the island that has played a significant part in New Zealand history, especially as far as
the tangata whenua (the Maori people) are concerned.
Our membership is open, welcoming and affirming, accepting of everyone, not just the main uniting denominations.
The parish mission statement is a simple one:
To promote Christian faith and values in the communities of the Kapiti Coast.
This ethic governs our worship and encourages our members to move out from the church into the community, giving service to others and helping address social issues.
Covid 19 and God’s Mission of Love
It is after prayerful thought that the Executive of Parish Council has decided that worship will not be held in any of the churches in Kapiti Uniting Parish for the foreseeable future.
Please also note that there will also be no gatherings in the church buildings for meetings, groups or other events.
The Government’s requirement is that physical distancing is the best way to protect New Zealand. We are encouraging all to practice self-isolation. Many members of our congregations are living in isolation in their homes and in lockdown in their rest homes so will be experiencing even greater isolation and loneliness. Our pastoral group and the minister will be making phone contact with as many in the parish as possible and we will be distributing the newsletter ‘Together’ and other items via email and by delivery to the letterboxes of those who do not use the internet.
May the Holy Spirit of care and compassion guide us through these difficult days.
