SMALL GROUPS are a great way of building friendships, encouraging each other in the messy business of life & faith - and having a lot of fun! They can be Westchurch-based or made of a handful of friends or people with a common interest sport or hobby. If you're interested in belonging to a small group (no matter how small or odd-shaped), have space in yours for someone else, or would consider starting a new group - don't sit on the idea for too long! Take a first step - talk to someone about it. And the pastoral team (Kathy, Brian, Trudi & Blair) can help put you in touch with resources and others you could team up with.

Blogging Begins

This blog site is open for anybody from Westchurch to write whatever they would like to write. It is expected that this will be good stuff and helpful for the church and other readers.

You will appreciate that this will lead to material and thoughts that may not receive consensus agreement for all Westchurch people. If you do comment and enter into debate publicly with the blogger then please be reasonable and polite.

Remember that this is in the public domain. You must be careful not to cause trouble with regard to personal safety, privacy, confidences, copyright and other social responsibilities.

I have modified the Westchurch web site (a draft site looking for someone to help give it a face lift and take responsibility for it) to include this Blog, a Calendar and an Email address - all thanks to good old Google. See http://met.net.nz/wc.
