Hall Closure

After 58 years of our hall being a place for meetings, fellowship sharing, cups of tea, food, children playing, dancing and singing we have had to close her. The hall no longer meets the requirements of the Earthquake regulations. On Sunday May 7th, 2018 with heavy hearts we decommissioned our hall. During the Sunday service the people of the parish made a pilgrimage from the church to the hall to farewell this grand lady. 

With lots of help from people in the parish moving and reorganizing furniture our Church is being used as a multi purpose building to house the many activities that went on in the hall. A transition team has been formed and their job is to get the church up and running with hot water, toilets, internet, phone, offices and heating.

What is happening you might ask? Well, the Rheem hot water heater is being moved into the foyer of the church so we can continue to have a cup of tea after worship, 3 heat pumps are to be moved from the hall to the church to keep us nice and warm for the winter months to come, a accessible toilet block is to be added at the back of the church by the vestry and will be plumbed into the sewage this will have a ramp, hot water and a light. These things are going to take time and with encouraging prayer and God walking beside us this will also be an exciting change for the people of Knox Church. 

Our preschool groups, Little Groovers and Doodlebugs have been using the new space for 2 weeks the children and parents have settled into their new surroundings with lots of positive feedback about using the church build
