Winter Solstice and Matariki Celebration


Come and celebrate!
Saturday June 26

St Columba.
92 Surrey Crescent, Grey Lynn (we will begin in the hall).

A time to recognise that we have passed the shortest day and are now turning toward the light and waiting expectantly for the lengthening of the days.

We will acknowledge the rise of Matariki in our southern skies signalling the New Year and the time for planting.
