Who are you hearing from?

Since going into lockdown our church has been reading through the Gospel of Mark together. This has taken the form of someone reading a few verses each morning, and then someone else each night, with the videos getting uploaded to our Church Facebook Group. I have loved the way that this process has involved a number of people from within our faith community – some who wouldn’t normally be seen ‘up the front’ – so to speak. I have also loved that – as people have read the scripture – they have quite often offered a thought of some kind, or an insight, or a personal reflection on the passage. It has truly been a very rich time as we have had of privilege of hearing from and encouraging one another.

I wonder who you are hearing from and being encouraged by at the moment? I wonder who is hearing from and being encouraged by you? I want to challenge you to spend some time over the coming days to connect with people around you. Your friends, family, physical neighbours, virtual neighbours – I’m sure they would love to hear from you. And perhaps, as you visit with one another, you can be reminded of God’s love for all people, in all places, at all times.

That is certainly something I have been reminded of as our church whanau have read through the Gospel of Mark together.

Stress counselling and support


This will continue to be an unsettling time, and the uncertainty of COVID-19 can have an impact on our mental wellbeing. We continue to remind staff and students and friends of the college that mental wellbeing is important, and can be supported through accessing a range of the self-help resources. 

If you would like someone to talk to, please be aware of the following free resources available through the Ministry of Health.

While the library remains closed during level 3, they are up and running for click and collect from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday to Saturday. Please be in touch if you need any resources to support your studies.
