BNZ Closed for Good 2017

Closed for Good is BNZ’s annual day of volunteering. On Wednesday 23 August they closed their stores and most of their support offices and got out into New Zealand communities to lend a hand. This year an awesome team came to the Cathedral to make light work with many hands pruning and gardening, as well as re-shoeing and cleaning hundreds of chairs in the Nave. Our grateful thanks to BNZ for their wonderful support, and hard work!

Holy Trinity Cathedral Museum Display

On Friday, 28 July, a display featuring Auckland’s Anglican Cathedral was opened at the Auckland War Memorial Museum. This display shows the journey of Holy Trinity Cathedral from the purchase of the land in Parnell by Bishop Selwyn through to Consecration and beyond. The display, located on the Ground Floor between the Maori Court and the Pacific Masterpieces, depicts out story with photos and items from the 19th century through to the present. Told in both English and te reo, and with fascinating objects on view, this display is well worth a visit. The display will be in place until February 2018. Auckland Museum entry is free for Aucklanders with a MyMuseum card, with proof of residence.

Bishop Selwyn Lecture, 2017

This years’ lecture was given by the Very Rev’d Professor Martyn Percy who is the Dean (or head) of Christ Church, Oxford, as well as of the Cathedral Church of the Diocese of Oxford. He gave his lecture the title House-hunting and Home-coming: Understanding Space and Spirituality. Dean Percy looked at the question: What does it mean to inhabit and belong to a church – as a space, and as a congregation in a community? In his engaging lecture, he lead an exploration into how space and spirituality can be understood and re-imagined for those in our communities who are seeking a home of faith, and a homecoming with God.
