The Nelson Cathedral Choristers are heading to Wellington in September to join with other young singers for the Royal School of Church Music Choir School, which will be directed by former Nelson Cathedral Organ Scholar and Current Director of Music at Wellington Cathedral - Michael Stewart. You can help by sponsoring a Chorister to attend this exciting event. If you can sponsor a Chorister by donating $25, $50 or $100 in addition to your usual giving please put “Sponsor a Chorister” on the additional offering or contact the Cathedral Treasurer – Cecil Hood Telephone - 538 0565. Cheques can left at the Office or direct Banking to BNZ Account – For Church Wardens of the Parish of Christ Church 020704 00284 23 00 - reference ‘Chorister’.
Sponsor a Chorister
YUMMY TREATS Each Sunday over the next few weeks the Choristers and their families will be holding a cake sale at Morning Tea after the 10am Service to help raise funds towards their trip to Wellington. Each family will take a Sunday and supply muffins and scones that parishioners can have for a gold coin donation.
CAN YOU HELP?
In September, 15 choristers and two leaders are going to Wellington to a music school. The cost for each chorister is $300. $100 of this is being provided by the parents, and they are fundraising for another $100 per person. I think morning tea, with coin donation is going to be available after the 10am service, so please bring some extra coins with you for that. What about the other $100 per chorister and leaders? Wouldn’t it be great if we could all give a donation towards this last $1,700 which will benefit us all and especially the choristers. For example, approximately 80 people attend the 10am service. If each of us gave $22 this would be all done and dusted and the choir will be ecstatic (and so will we). Or a couple could sponsor one chorister at $100. Let’s see if we can do it, within the next two weeks. 5 Jenny Dickie People’s Warden.
Indu, a very friendly young man from India who visited our Cathedral on Sunday is living in New Zealand on a short term basis while his wife studies for a Diploma in Culinary Arts. His visa does not allow for paid work but he is able to do odd jobs on a voluntary basis. He would like to ultimately obtain a sponsor letter for Immigration, requesting he be permitted to find paid work. Indu has 15 years experience in land agriculture and the dairy industry. He can do gardening work, lawn mowing, tree pruning, firewood cutting and has experience driving a tractor and small truck. If you can help, he can be contacted on 027-398-0591.
Readings for 8am and 10am Isaiah 5: 1-7 Let me sing for my beloved my lovesong concerning his vineyard: My beloved had a vineyard on a very fertile hill. He dug it and cleared it of stones, and planted it with choice vines; he built a watch-tower in the midst of it, and hewed out a wine vat in it; he expected it to yield grapes, but it yielded wild grapes. And now, inhabitants of Jerusalem and people of Judah, judge between me and my vineyard. What more was there to do for my vineyard that I have not done in it? When I expected it to yield grapes, why did it yield wild grapes? And now I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard. I will remove its hedge, and it shall be devoured; I will break down its wall, and it shall be trampled down. I will make it a waste; it shall not be pruned or hoed, and it shall be overgrown with briers and thorns; I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it. For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, and the people of Judah are his pleasant planting; he expected justice,but saw bloodshed; righteousness, but heard a cry!
weakness, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight. Women received their dead by resurrection. Others were tortured, refusing to accept release, in order to obtain a better resurrection. Others suffered mocking and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment. They were stoned to death, they were sawn in two, they were killed by the sword; they went about in skins of sheep and goats, destitute, persecuted, tormented of whom the world was not worthy. They wandered in deserts and mountains, and in caves and holes in the ground. Yet all these, though they were commended for their faith, did not receive what was promised, since God had provided something better so that they would not, without us, be made perfect. Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the sake of the joy that was set before him endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has taken his seat at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 11:29 – 12:2 By faith the people passed through the Red Sea as if it were dry land, but when the Egyptians attempted to do so they were drowned. By faith the walls of Jericho fell after they had been encircled for seven days. By faith Rahab the prostitute did not perish with those who were disobedient, because she had received the spies in peace. And what more should I say? For time would fail me to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, obtained promises, shut the mouths of lions, quenched raging fire, escaped the edge of the sword, won strength out of
Psalm 80 1. Hear, O Shepherd of Israel, you that led Joseph like a flock : you that are enthroned upon the cherubim, shine out in glory; 2. Before Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh : stir up your power, and come to save us. 8. You brought a vine out of Egypt : you drove out the nations, and planted it in. 9. You cleared the ground before it : and it struck root and filled the land. 10.The hills were covered with its shadow : and its boughs were like the boughs of the great cedars. 11. It stretched out its branches to the 6

sea : and its tender shoots to the Great River. Why then have you broken down its walls : so that every passer-by can pluck its fruit? The wild boar out of the woods roots it up : and the locusts from the wild places devour it. Turn to us again, O Lord of hosts : look down from heaven, and see. Bestow your care upon this vine : the stock which your own right hand has planted. As for those that burn it with fire and cut it down : let them perish at the rebuke of your countenance. Let your power rest on the man at your right hand : on that son of man whom you made so strong for yourself. And so we shall not turn back from you : give us life, and we will call upon your name. Restore us again, O Lord of hosts; show us the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.
7pm Psalm 72 1. Give the king your judgement, O God : and your righteousness to the son of a king, 2. That he may judge your people rightly : and the poor of the land with equity. 3. Let the mountains be laden with peace because of his righteousness : and the hills also with prosperity for his people. 4. May he give justice to the poor among the people : and rescue the children of the needy, and crush the oppressor. 5. May he live while the sun endures : and while the moon gives light, throughout all generations. 6. May he come down like rain upon the new-mown fields : and as showers that water the earth. 7. In his time shall righteousness flourish : and abundance of peace, till the moon shall be no more. 8. His dominion shall stretch from sea to sea : from the Great River to the ends of the earth. 9. His adversaries shall bow down before him : and his enemies shall lick the dust. 10. The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring tribute : the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts. 11. All kings shall fall down before him : and all nations do him service.
St. Luke 12: 49-56 ‘I came to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! I have a baptism with which to be baptized, and what stress I am under until it is completed! Do you think that I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division! From now on, five in one household will be divided, three against two and two against three; they will be divided: father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.’ He also said to the crowds, ‘When you see a cloud rising in the west, you immediately say, “It is going to rain”; and so it happens. And when you see the
Proverbs 8: 22-31 The LORD created me at the beginning of his work, the first of his acts of long ago. Ages ago I was set up, at the first, 7
St. John 19: 23-27 When the soldiers had crucified Jesus, they took his clothes and divided them into four parts, one for each soldier. They also took his tunic; now the tunic was seamless, woven in one piece from the top. So they said to one another, ‘Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it to see who will get it.’ This was to fulfil what the scripture says, ‘They divided my clothes among themselves, and for my clothing they cast lots.’ And that is what the soldiers did. Meanwhile, standing near the cross of Jesus were his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing beside her, he said to his mother, ‘Woman, here is your son.’ Then he said to the disciple, ‘Here is your mother.’ And from that hour the disciple took her into his own home.
before the beginning of the earth. When there were no depths I was brought forth, when there were no springs abounding with water. Before the mountains had been shaped, before the hills, I was brought forth when he had not yet made earth and fields, or the world’s first bits of soil. When he established the heavens, I was there, when he drew a circle on the face of the deep, when he made firm the skies above, when he established the fountains of the deep, when he assigned to the sea its limit, so that the waters might not transgress his command, when he marked out the foundations of the earth, then I was beside him, like a master worker; and I was daily his delight, rejoicing before him always, rejoicing in his inhabited world and delighting in the human race.
