Our lovely parish offers spiritual comfort and real compassion all year round to whoever asks or is in need. Rev. Jenni spends much of her time reaching out to the wider community as an integral part of our ministry is beyond the church walls. Please give Rev. Jenni a call, she will always make time for you.

We also offer activities and friendship in regular get-togethers throughout the year in accordance with Covid19 level guidelines.  Also please join us on Facebook where we will be sharing parish updates, and all things being equal a little light-heartedness.

CHRISTMAS SERVICES

“Blue Christmas Service”,  St John’s on Wednesday,  16th Dec at 7:00 pm.

This is a quiet reflective service with music, readings and candles, for those who may be having trouble finding joy this season. It is a time to name the loss, grief, and pain we have experienced during the year.

I believe our God will meet us and hold us as we walk together this Christmas.  You are welcome to bring family or friends with you.May the peace of God enfold you and your loved ones.

ABOUT HORORATA PARISH

Faith. Kindness. Community. Respect. These are the cornerstones behind Hororata Parish.  Our first wooden church built in 1875 established on the ideals of giving everyone a chance to gather as a community, learn, grow, and define their own religious identity through sharing. Today our community reflects the diverse use of the land and those who look after it. Some are 6th generation descendants of the earlier settlers and others are recent arrivals involved in local farming activities, or commuting to work in Christchurch or neighbouring towns.

Hororata in effect means the place of landslip (“
horo”) by the rata (a native tree).

GET TO KNOW OUR VICAR

The role of a vicar in a small community is immensely important.  Jenni has been ministering to the spiritual well-being of our parish for the last 10 years.  Along with being our Fire Chief, much of her time is spent in service to local families.  Our vicar is also part of the team of volunteers that host Hororata Highland Games, Night Glow and the local family favourite, the Hororata Parish Spring Fair. 
Please give Jenni a call if you need help and/or assistance.
