Doers of the Word

A message from Ven. David van Oeveren

This week we return to the Gospel of Mark and hear Jesus’ 2nd major speech.
Jesus is first speaking to the Pharisees and some of the Scribes, the audience changes to the crowds,
and then he speaks to his disciples…

Dear Friends

As we move through this second week in Level 4, we wanted to reach out and remind you that we may not be able to meet face to face but we are not isolated. We may be alone but should not be lonely. We encourage you to take 5 minutes from your day to connect by phone, text, email or Zoom with someone you know, someone outside your bubble, whether they live alone or not, they might welcome a familiar but different friendly voice.

Here are some resources for you to use as you see fit, they include links to ‘live’ online worship opportunities happening this week.

Please feel absolutely free to share these with anyone in your circle that you feel might have need of them. On that note we send a huge thank you to those of you who have actively been doing that. Please know with their permission, we have added these people to our contact list and they will receive resources directly from us.

Please join us at 10am this Sunday for worship via the Archdeaconry YouTube page by clicking this link –

Greater Hastings worship resources are also available at our website – Anglican Parish of Greater Hastings – Combining St Peter’s, Riverslea and St Matthew’s, Hastings (

and our Facebook page – Parish of Greater Hastings, Hastings, NZ – Home |

Abundant Blessings…

The Venerable David van Oeveren
