Register for the Saturday Hui at Rehua Marae HERE
‘Huia Come Home: The stories and songs of Aotearoa’ is a weekend (10-11 August) with Jay Ruka (author of Huia Come Home) and the Te Rautini worship team (formerly known as Link…check out their album on Spotify).
The weekend consists of three public events:
1. Worship with Te Rautini worship team.
Friday August 10 | 7pm | Northcity Church, 95a Sawyers Arms Road, Christchurch | Free, but koha appreciated.
Come and experience the beauty of worship that flows from a relationship of reconciliation between Pākehā and Māori, and the desire to worship God in a way that is uniquely earthed in Aotearoa.
2. Hui Come Home: Hui.
Saturday August 11 | 9:30am-4pm | Rehua Marae, 79 Springfield Road, Christchurch | $30 (includes lunch) | Register HERE
Join with Jay Ruka as he provides inspiration and hope by telling the brilliant, and sad, story of Christianity in Aotearoa. What does this story mean for us today? As the Church? As churches? As individuals? Aaron Hardy (of Te Rautini) will also share from his own story of bi-cultural engagement and how that has shaped his faith and music.
3. Worship Kōrero with Te Rautini worship team.
Saturday August 11 | 7pm | Northcity Church, 95a Sawyers Arms Road, Christchurch | Free, but koha appreciated.
Come and here from the worship team who brought us the album ‘Kia Kaha by Link’, and songs such as Tuhia, Kia kaha, and Jubilee. We would love worshippers from around Christchurch to join with us to learn from their journey of worship in Aotearoa. We will hear some of the story of how their sound has come about and how it is developing, as they explore what it means to worship in this land, and we will have time for Q&A. And of course, we will spend some time worshipping together.
