Armistice Day & St Martinstide Service

11 November 2018

At 11am on 11 November 1918 the First World War finally came to an end. When news of the Armistice reached New Zealand it was met with widespread thanksgiving, celebration and a lot of noise. We fixed the bell rope so that we can join the 'Roaring Chorus' with thousands of others in Aotearoa and other parts of the world.

Patronal Prayer

Almighty God, you called Martin from the armies of this world to be a faithful soldier of Christ, and led your servant Chad to be an evangelist and bishop of the fledgling English Church. Give us grace to imitate their lives of love by walking humbly, prayerfully, generously, and courageously with you, that we may truly commend to others the faith which we ourselves profess; through Jesus Christ you Son, our Saviour. Amen.

Prayer for all... 


“I asked for strength,

and God gave me difficulties to make me strong,

I asked for wisdom,

and God gave me problems to solve,

I asked for prosperity,

and God gave me a brain and braun to work,

I asked for courage,

and God gave me danger to overcome,

I asked for love,

and God gave me troubled people to help,

I asked for favours,

and God gave me opportunities.


I received nothing I asked for but everything I needed.”
