July 2015

Our purpose is to encourage everyone through friendship to know Jesus Christ and to help each other develop our God-given talents for His Glory. 

News and Thanks

We had a wonderful camp at Carey Park a few months ago. It was great to see so many new helpers at our camp and people inspired by messages from our camp speaker Celia King. The messages were recorded and are available to listen to again from our website. We are grateful to financial support from COGS (Community Organisation Grants Scheme) enabling us to reduce the price of the camp

We had a sausage sizzle at Bunnings in Mt Wellington just before camp which raised nearly $600.00 and enabled us to sponsor some people for our camp. Thanks to Blair Woolley who helped us to sell many sausages on the day. There will be another sausage sizzle fundraiser later in the year

Congratulations to Kim Sutherland and Mandy Lee who recently completed a sign language course. 
This is a great achievement and we hope that God will give you great opportunities to use these new skills in the future.

There have been some recent changes on the CFFD Auckland committee. Vanessa Creamer who was on the CFFD Auckland committee for the last 11 years has moved to Wellington to take up a full time job with Workwise as an Employment Coordinator for people with Mental health issues. Rogan Josh (Vanessa's hearing dog) has also moved to Wellington with Vanessa.

Vanessa has worked tirelessly behind the scenes of CFFD Auckland for many years as our Chairperson and has helped make many of our events that we have run a success. Thank you Vanessa for your contribution to CFFD Auckland and the committee. We wish you all the very best for the future.

We welcome Blair Woolley and Bonnie Pascoe onto the CFFD Auckland committee. We are sure they will contribute greatly to the life and future of this ministry.

We held our first Prayer and Praise meeting in May, which was also our AGM. This was a fantastic success with many people attending. We have decided to hold another Prayer and Praise meeting on Saturday 15th August from 10am to 12pm at Elevate Christian Disability Trust.

There will be morning tea before the meeting from 9:30am. There will also be a shared lunch afterwards. If you are attending the shared lunch, please bring a plate of food to share.

Our Christmas Dinner will be held on Saturday 21st November from 6:30pm to 9:30pm at CityChurch Waitakere, 133 Central Park Drive, Henderson. More details will be in our next newsletter.

Congratulations to Mitchell Aiken and Julie Guy who were married at Remuera Baptist Church on Saturday 11th July.

We wish you all the best for your future together.
