News from St Leonard's Church

As St. Leonard’s enters it’s second century there has been congregational discussions about the future.  Two priorities were identified:


Weekly services beginning February. A team of the Vicar, Rev’d Dianne Hawken, Rev’d Bob Howard and Bishop John Bluck will each officiate at a service.  The vestry would like to offer you an opportunity to support this endeavour by making yourselves available for greeters duties and for reading and of course if you feel able and called to ministry in another capacity please talk to Jan.  If you would like to be a reader or greeter please write your name on the clipboard available at the door of St. Leonard’s. 


Secondly the provision of an electronic noticeboard as a Centenary Project. The purpose of the noticeboard is to give St Leonards and the Anglican presence locally some greater visibility in this very strategic location and to show all who pass by that we (St. Leonard’s and the parish) are engaged in the community around us and offer a welcoming and varied programmeThis will be available for community use as well, based on the guidelines of Children, Church and Community.   The chosen noticeboard will cost $4000.00 and we invite you to make donations towards this project by placing a donation in an envelope and placing in the donation tray at church or making a donation online.  Bank account no 020408:0021360:00 – please note clearly what it is for.
Advent Meditation

 Advent Meditation

 As we did last year, each week during Advent there will be a meditation focus within the altar reflecting on the meanings of the candles in the advent wreath

hope, peace, joy, love 


Love and the Celtic Cross

The Celtic Cross was never intended to be a dead ornament or even an interesting ornament, but an encouragement to deep spiritual life.

Silent meditation on symbols and patterns can produce more spirituality, evangelism, social engagement, than a thousand words.


You are invited to meditate on the shapes and patterns of the Celtic Crosses and let them speak to you of God’s love
