A local church is hoping to open its doors to the community. Session clark for Kilbirnie Presbyterian Church, formerly known as St Gile’s, Jo Vilipaama, said the church has spent the last couple of years looking at mission. “We want to look at ways we can reach out to the community and start relationships.

up to the community,” Jo said. Linda Enari, from Kids on Foot, said children had already begun work on a community garden at the church, after being inspired by Neighbours’ Day and Local Food Week. Lyall Bay Bunnings had come on board and had offered to donate a number of seedlings and garden tools to the church, she said. “Bunnings will also have a workshop with the kids, teaching them how to plant seeds and make compost,” Linda said. “Kids on Foot is about reaching out to the community and that is why working with the church is really good. It’s important to teach kids they can contribute and make an impact.” Jo said work was also continuing on painting the church building’s exterior and giving it a “face lift”. For more information about Kilbirnie Presbyterian Church, head to kpc.kiwi.nz
