‘The Apostle’ Christmas
We welcome your contributions for the Christmas edition of ‘The Apostle’ which is now being planned. If you have any positives from lockdown (e,g, new hobbies, projects, accomplishments, insights…) we would love to hear from you. Photos are especially welcome.
Looking forward to Christmas – do you have any suggestions or ideas for celebrating with family or loved ones when you can’t physically be together? Perhaps a special shared recipe or craft, a particular movie you like to watch every Christmas season, an empty chair set aside for the absent person, or something completely different? Any ideas for us all to feel closer to one another.
During the Auckland lockdown, we are still uploading weekly newsletters, that provide up to date information. You can follow along with what’s happening with our St Aidan’s Community during Lockdown via Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. You can also find our COVID-19 updates here.
Please email us if you would like to be added to our mailing list.

Cleaning Bee, Saturday 27th March
It was fantastic to see over 50 people come and help us ‘Spring Clean’ the church, as we were unable to clean it in 2020. Thank you to all of those who came along to help clean, and to help make palm crosses for Palm Sunday!
Mission Shop open under Alert Level 1
Now we are back to Alert Level 1, our Mission Shop has reopened. Come along Thursday-Saturday between 10am-2pm to say hello to our volunteers and find a bargain!
At Christmas, we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, a person who has had a profound influence on human history. As Christians, we believe that it is God himself who comes near to us in this person. We also believe that in Jesus there is something for everyone – and that was this year’s theme, ‘There is something for everyone’. Watch our two recorded services below.

To celebrate the wonderful ministry that Glen has provided at St Aidan’s and farewell all the Ashworths we held a shared lunch on Sunday 20th December after the 9:30am service. Whilst it was not their last service in the parish it made sense to do this prior to Christmas and when many people go on holiday.
