Awesome Messy Church in July! Yummy food, beef stew and chocolate cake - thanks to the many who helped cook. The theme was 'Light Up'; we explored what Jesus being the light of the world means for us. We saw people crawling through dark tunnels and making candles. Pop into the auditorium if you get a chance and check out the large prayer cross at the back. Read the prayers people wrote and share with us by praying them. Praise God for our committed team of helpers who are involved in this exciting ministry! Please support this faith community with your prayers and your presence.
Over the past six months, the Strengthening Community Governance Project, which is steered by Rata Foundation, Nelson City Council, Tasman District Council, Volunteer Nelson, Te Putahitanga and Community representatives has been working with the governance community to develop an action plan.
We are excited to announce the first project from the action plan – Governance Bites.
This year long series of workshops aims to provide bite sized learning opportunities and a peer support and networking opportunity. You can sign up for each event separately, or come along to all.
Starting on 7th June (5:15-7pm) with ‘The Purpose of the Board’, facilitator Garth Nowland-Foreman (Director, LEAD) will guide you through the topic. Garth has a wealth of experience in the sector, from staring his own organisation right through to leading a government policy unit, as well as 20 years teaching experience.
To sign up for this workshop, please complete the Workshop Registration form at https://www.volunteernelson.org.nz/workshop-registration/ or call Jane at Volunteer Nelson on 03 546 7681 for more information.
Further workshops in this series will be held on the first Thursday evening of the month. They will cover topics such as the relationship between Governance and Management, Strategic Planning, recruitment, succession planning and removing.
