Jubilee at PIC Church
More than 100 Presbyterian women from around the Wellington region celebrated their 50th jubilee on May 17 at the PIC Church in Porirua East.
Rev Hana Topea Maigoa, of Stokes Valley, opened proceedings with devotions and Winnie Laban was the guest speaker.
She told of her upbringing in the church, her experiences of being MP for Mana and her position now at Victoria University, and then outlined challenges facing families and women today.
Laban congratulated all the women for their contributions to their communities.
The afternoon activities involved remembering past members, crafts and dancing.
