Parish Quiz Night, Friday 5th August
This year’s theme was “Duos”. We raised over $3,000 for Habitat for Humanity, which is fantastic! Thanks to those that contributed to the great evening.
“Thanks to the 93 volunteers who joined us at Waiata Reserve in Remuera on Saturday to plant 1,250 trees and shrubs alongside the stream. These plants will help prevent erosion, stabilize stream banks and provide food and habitat for our native species. This epic group knocked out the planting is just over an hour. This event was in partnership with Orakei Local Board and Auckland Council’s Healthy Waters Team. Thanks to everyone for your support and a special shout-out to @staidansremuera for cooking the BBQ 👏. ” – Conservation Volunteers NZ

Introducing our New Associate Priest, Reverend Kerry Davis
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Reverend Kerry Davis to our Associate Priest position. For the past four years, Kerry has served as the Missioner/Vicar at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Kerry will bring experience and a wide range of gifts to St Aidan’s complementing and building upon the existing ministry. We look forward to having him on the team, and to have his wife Vaoa and daughter, Pia as part of our parish. There are still areas to work through in terms of various responsibilities in the parish, but it might be helpful to know that Kerry’s days in the parish will be Sunday through to Thursday, leaving Friday and Saturdays as his days off.
