 The Long Table: Wine and Theology Evening,
'How is God good if there is suffering and evil?'

Our first Wine and Theology evening is coming up on Friday July 27th @ 7.30pm
The venue is here at Kohimarama Presbyterian Church.

Have you thought about inviting anyone yet? There are flyers available in the foyer to give to people. Feel free to come even if you come alone. This evening is for all and it's a great excuse to get together as a community.

The wine will be made available by donation and there will be snacks too. Are you able to help provide snacks? Please make yourself known to Maryna or Grant. 

Board-game Café (to be properly named by planning group)
The board-game café, will be commencing sometime in August. It is planned for once a month on a Sunday afternoon. It will be a good opportunity to invite people; to build community with Kohi people including those you know and those you happen upon.

We would love to borrow an espresso machine monthly if possible. We would also love to borrow quality board-games monthly too.

Would you like to be involved? We need one or two more people to be on the planning team.

We would love people who just want to mix and mingle too, among other tasks. Please check out the roles and sign the sheet in the foyer.
