Katikati Advertiser - - Your Community Voice -

St Peter’s Angli­can Church in Katikati has a ma­jor fundrais­ing event each year in Novem­ber to as­sist with a short­fall in par­ish funds. This year it is a mon­ster garage sale be­ing held this Satur­day at 9am on the church premises at the cor­ner of Beach Rd and Caris­brooke St.

Dur­ing the year house lots of fur­ni­ture, house­hold items, tools, gar­den­ing equip­ment, and other items have been do­nated and now they must be sold.

Rev­erend Bren­dan Gibbs said the church premises are used by many church and com­mu­nity groups dur­ing the year so there is al­ways sub­stan­tial main­te­nance that needs to be done both in­side and out­side of all the build­ings.

“Over the years the his­toric church, built 1884, has been up­graded with the help of com­mu­nity fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties such as this one.

“It is im­por­tant that these im­prove­ments are main­tained for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions of church at­ten­dees and for com­mu­nity users.”

St Peter’s Church has been an ac­tive mem­ber of the Katikati com­mu­nity for many years with a va­ri­ety of com­mu­nity as­sis­tance ac­tiv­i­ties.

One ex­am­ple is it helps run the Sea­sons for Grief chil­dren’s pro­gramme run in var­i­ous schools in the Waihi and Katikati area. While the pro­gramme may not be well known in the wider com­mu­nity, within the schools it plays an im­por­tant role in help­ing chil­dren work through the vary­ing kinds of grief in their lives. A con­tri­bu­tion from funds raised from the mon­ster garage sale will be made to­wards this pro­gramme.

Even if you don’t nor­mally come to church you won’t want to miss com­ing to St Peter’s Mon­ster Garage Sale 9am this Satur­day on the church premises. There will be loads of items plus a cake stall and raf­fle — so come and grab a bar­gain.
