Churches provide support in New Zealand

Thanks to Kendall Harmon of Titusonenine for providing the link to this story of encouragement and support in Christchurch New Zealand.

The normal rhythms of life were completely disrupted and people found themselves doing things they had never expected to, but it was usual for the congregation to meet and take communion on Sundays.

”That in itself will begin to meet that need of working through what we’ve all been through.”

In a 90-minute service, parishioners talked of their experiences. One said he had gone to help evacuate a group of elderly residents of an Anglican rest home and been told, ”We don’t want to go, we want to pretend this is the first night of a church Bible camp”.
