Jesus Foretells His Death and Resurrection
8:31 Then he began to teach them that the Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. 32 He said all this quite openly. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. 33 But turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, ‘Get behind me, Satan! For you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things.’
34 He called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, ‘If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 35 For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it. 36 For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life? 37 Indeed, what can they give in return for their life? 38 Those who are ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of them the Son of Man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.’
9:2 Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain apart, by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, 3 and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no one on earth could bleach them. 4 And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, who were talking with Jesus. 5 Then Peter said to Jesus, ‘Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; let us make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.’ 6 He did not know what to say, for they were terrified. 7 Then a cloud overshadowed them, and from the cloud there came a voice, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; listen to him!’ 8 Suddenly when they looked around, they saw no one with them any more, but only Jesus.
The Coming of Elijah
9 As they were coming down the mountain, he ordered them to tell no one about what they had seen, until after the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
This is the Gospel of Christ
Praise to Christ the Word
The Bible focus for each Sunday follows the Lectionary which is the listing of Bible readings for each service of worship for each day of the year, including those for the special saints and days included in the Church’s Calendar / Te Maramataka.
Lent 2021 Six Study Series
An opportunity to join Anglican Christians from Wellington and Christchurch dioceses.
Our human destiny is not to live in ruins but for the ruins to be rebuilt and for us to partner with God in this rebuilding.
These studies are based on the writings of the Jewish (First testament) Prophets. The period they spoke and wrote in was full of uncertainty, chaos and upheaval - sound familiar!... Come and join us in this exploration, as we seek to listen and learn through the Prophets, what God might be saying to us and how God might be stirring us to action this Lenten season. (Wayne Kirkland ed.)

USUAL MONTHLY SERVICES ROSTER
Our Sunday services are based on the Anglican prayer book. We have different services including informal, eucharist, creative, Celtic and other. We seek to be a friendly Anglican church. We enjoy each other’s company, sing, share together, pray, listen to scripture, laugh and minister to one another, finishing with morning tea and sometimes lunch.
St Anne's Worship Space seats up to 50 people. This area was the St Anne's meeting room/hall until mid 2014 when the Church was closed following an earthquake assessment.
This comfortable area doubles as a meeting hall and eating area for after worship gatherings.
During worship we regularly offer children present a creative Christian education time in the foyer adjacent this worship space.
