St Peters Knit For A Purpose Group – knitting woollens for babies and toddlers cared for by the Anglican Trust For Women and Children in Auckland. So far five 90 litre bins of knitted clothes have been passed on to the Trust, in less than two years of effort by the members of the group.

Men’s Group. The group meets on Friday afternoon caring for the church garden and grounds, and contributing vegetables to the St Andrews Community Meals, as well as spending some time solving most of the world’s problems from men’s perspective over cups of tea.

Wilkinson Family Baptism on Easter Sunday. The first baptisms for ages, and this time father and two boys were baptised.

Good Friday Walk of Witness through Whitianga township. A combined Anglican and Roman Catholic Christian event.

Combined Churches’ Carol Service in the centre of town. This typically attracts well over 100 people each year.

Local schools’ Children’s Walk Through Christmas, where groups of 1st and 2nd year children from four reasonably local schools walk to the Anglican, Roman Catholic, and Presbyterian churches for stories and activities about the birth of Christ. Gillian is pictured telling the story of the first Christmas.
