With the shift to a fully online mode of delivery, we’re rethinking how we can connect with each other and worship together. We’re going to experiment with a few ideas over the coming few weeks, and we’d be keen to hear any ideas that you might have (email John at In the meantime, here’s what we have planned for this coming week:


Let’s start the week as a learning community by lifting our eyes to Jesus. At 9.00 am this Monday (30 March) the pukaea will sound. Join us online for 25 minutes of community worship. There’ll be opportunity to interact live with one another as we lift our eyes, confess our need, receive God’s word, and respond in prayer for the week and the world.

At 12.30 on Wednesday we’re going to have a bit of online fun over lunch. Sam is cooking up something crazy. It’ll be good to play a game, have some fun, and then chat with others in the Carey community. As Jacinda says, let’s be kind, and look out for one another.

From Psalm 121 
And thus the Lord will keep you
shielding you from the forces of evil
as a shade tree shields you  (stay with this image for a moment, soak up what that image is telling us  and pray it for yourself)
from the rays of the blazing sun
