A couple of busy weekends coming up. In addition to Sunday services, two special events are scheduled. On Sat. 29th April from 9-11am St Hilda's annual Parish Fair is happening.
Then, a week later, at 1.30pm on Sunday 7th May the Bishop and a Diocesan Nominator will consult with us about the appointment of a permanent priest/vicar. Come and have your say and listen to what others, including the Diocese, have to say.
St Hilda's, Upper Hutt church members attended the noon Good Friday service at Trentham this year. Pictured is the procession approaching the XIV (14th) Station of the Cross as they prepare to lay the crucified Jesus in His garden tomb - featured by the red blanket (left). The lady in blue acted the part of Mary, Jesus mother, and the story was told from the perspective of a Centurion (right).
Around 70 people participated in and witnessed this dramatic re-enactment entitled, 'The Way of the Cross'.
Henceforth we will be attempting to post on this website's SERMONS page copies of Sunday Message files - print and audio - as they are available. We are mindful that some cannot get to church and other church members are 'shut in' or ill. Others who were in church may find it helpful to read or listen again to the message. This service will hopefully assist to create and maintain a greater sense of community among St Hilda's folk. If you find this service helpful please let us know.
Online access to the Church Sunday Newsletter (pdf) will henceforth be available in two places:
Of course the newsletter will continue to be published in the usual print format and available to all who attend worship on Sundays.

ANGLICAN CHURCHES WORKING TOGETHER
In an effort to better communicate with the Upper Hutt community, and the church community, the St Hilda's website has been updated and upgraded. It continues as a work in progress. Your feedback will be greatly appreciated as we seek to develop a website that meets your needs. Please make a 'comment" below or use the CONTACT form on the website.
St Hilda's Anglican have arranged discounted registrations for this 7 week journey from Easter to Pentecost. Participants will receive two emails each week and the opportunity to participate in a concluding day of refvlection at Wellington Cathedral on 3 June from 10am to 3pm. More information via the button below.
On the basis that at least 15 people from the Parish will register for this study the fee will be #30 per person. However, money should be no barrier to participation. Pay what you can. Maybe some can pay more and subsidise others.
