Hororata Parish ministry is available albeit at the end of our phone lines, or please join us on Facebook where we will be sharing parish updates, worship services and all things being equal a little light-heartedness.

Stay safe, Stay in your bubble, Save Lives

 

Kia ora everyone,

We are journeying in uncertain times, but we are not alone, most of us are fortunate to have some way of staying connected to others even as we stay within our own bubble.

The church building is closed but parish ministry continues. I must stay within my family bubble, but I am at work. If you need someone to chat with, I am available by phone, email etc. If you need help please ring. We will be posting things on the web and Facebook during this time

God bless you, kia kaha,

Jenni

ABOUT HORORATA PARISH

Faith. Kindness. Community. Respect. These are the cornerstones behind Hororata Parish.  Our first wooden church built in 1875 established on the ideals of giving everyone a chance to gather as a community, learn, grow, and define their own religious identity through sharing. Today our community reflects the diverse use of the land and those who look after it. Some are 6th generation descendants of the earlier settlers and others are recent arrivals involved in local farming activities, or commuting to work in Christchurch or neighbouring towns.

Hororata in effect means the place of landslip (“
horo”) by the rata (a native tree).

GET TO KNOW OUR VICAR

The role of a vicar in a small community is immensely important.  Jenni has been ministering to the spiritual well-being of our parish for the last 10 years.  Along with being our Fire Chief, much of her time is spent in service to local families.  Our vicar is also part of the team of volunteers that host Hororata Highland Games, Night Glow and the local family favourite, the Hororata Parish Spring Fair. 
Please give Jenni a call if you need help and/or assistance.
