Victim tells sobering story

• By Julia Evans

CHRISTCHURCH Boys’ High

School students are about to get

a sobering lesson.

George Cairney’s life was

completely changed in 2008

when he sat in the passenger’s

seat of a car beside a driver who

had been drinking.

The car crashed

into a brick wall at

135km/h.

He will talk

about the incident

George

Cairney

Graham

Clarke

Nic Hill

to students at the

CBHS hall on

October 18 from

7pm.

At the time Mr

Cairney, 24, was

17 and attended

King’s College in

Auckland.

Taking most

of the impact

of the crash, he

has since been

legally blind and

has lost his sense

of taste, hearing

and smell, as well

as developing

diabetes, epilepsy

and premature

ageing.

After spending a month in a

coma, Mr Cairney also lost his

memory from a year before and

after the crash.

His talk will discuss the road

to recovery from his injuries, as

well as the decisions which led

to him to get into the car on that

tragic day.

Mr Cairney, who lives in

HIGH RISK: Crash victim George Cairney will talk about drink

driving to students at CBHS on October 18.

Wanaka, will be supported

during the talk by his mentor

and friend Graham Clarke who

has his own story to tell.

His son was killed after

getting behind the wheel after

he’d been drinking.

Headmaster Nic Hill has

invited students from all schools

around the city and the wider

community to hear the story

of “sadness, recovery, love and

strength”.

Mr Hill said the school is

encouraging students to have

emotional conversations about

alcohol and driving.

“These are conversations that

we as adults have to be starting

. . . there is a parental role

in making sure our boys are

equipped to be safe,” he said.

Playcentre

destroyed

by fire

rushes to

find new

home

• By Julia Evans

BELFAST Playcentre is racing

against the clock to find a new

home after its building was gutted

by fire.

The playcentre, next to

Sheldon Park on Main North

Rd, caught fire just after 1pm on

Sunday.

With the school term starting

next week, the playcentre is

determined to find a new home

so parents and children aren’t

affected.

A pot had been left on the stove,

which caught fire during a fifth

birthday party.

“Two men put a fire blanket

on the stove but it got out of

control. Then they tried to use a

fire extinguisher, which ran out

of foam,” playcentre co-ordinator

Julie O’Rourke said.

“They did everything correctly

. . . it’s just one of those things that

happens.”

The centre was evacuated and

the two men were treated at the

scene for smoke inhalation but

were not taken to hospital.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK News................................3, 7-11

YOUNG MEN, cars, speed

and alcohol are unfortunately a

perfect mix for tragedy.

It was like that decades ago,

and it still remains today and

will no doubt into the future.

Next week, two people

affected by drink driving and

crashes will talk to students

at Christchurch Boys’ High

School.

One is a young guy who was

the passenger in a car driven by

a drink driver that crashed –

and one a dad who lost his son

to drink driving (see page 1).

How students digest the talk

will inevitably be up to them.

Hopefully, when they are

out at the weekend, they’ll

remember the talk and not

get into a car driven by a mate

who has been drinking, or get

behind the wheel themselves

after having a few.

Fendalton roads worry

• By Julia Evans

THERE ARE serious concerns

for pedestrian and cyclist safety

on Fendalton roads.

And the creation of a working

party to address the issues affecting

Idris, Straven and Glandovey

Rds has been a long time in the

making, residents say.

Traffic volume through the

area is out of hand, the road

layout is poor and the parts of the

cycleway are too narrow, resident

James Wilding said.

The working party was established

after Mr Wilding and

other Fendalton residents Ross

Seal and Barbara Hann made a

deputation to the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community

Board regarding these issues.

The group also sent photos to

city council staff in February and

a letter signed by 200 residents to

city councillors and the mayor.

Working party members have

not yet been confirmed but it

will be made up of residents,

including Mr Wilding, as well as

community board members and

city council staff.

The residents want to create

a “living street” atmosphere,

which promotes pedestrians and

discourages cars.

“The board is keen to work

productively with affected parties

on the issues that have been

raised about traffic volumes,” city

council manager planning and

delivery transport Lynette Ellis

said.

A date for its first meeting has

not yet been set but residents are

keen to address the mounting

problems.

Mr Wilding said there are a

large number of trucks using

the roads, which are classified as

minor arterial or collector.

“We have freight routes, for

example Blenheim Rd. Those four

and six-lane roads are the ones

freight should us,” he said.

Part of the cycle lane is 60cm

wide. Under the city council’s

guidelines cycle lanes should be

at least 1.5m wide, not including

the gutter, Mr Wilding said.

And he said it’s not uncommon

for vehicles to cross into the

cycleways, which he has photographed.

“Children must be, and feel

safe, on our roads, especially

in residential areas and near

schools. The city council ought

to help ensure a safe and healthy

cycleway on Idris Rd is 60cm

regulation, it should be 1.5m.

city for residents,” Mr Wilding

said.

The area has the highest density

of residential heritage buildings

in the city – which have been also

been affected by the number of

heavy vehicles, the residents said.

“We seem to be creating a quiet

largely traffic free CBD and busy

suburbs. It is important the safety

and character of suburbs right

across the city is not lost as a result

of post-earthquake changes,”

Mr Wilding said.

Build roads and the traffic will come

Papanui city

councillor

and avid

cyclist Mike

Davidson

writes

about the

major issue

afflicting

his ward and what

he thinks would be a

good alternative during

Biketober

One key issue facing the Papanui

Ward, and the city, at the

moment is traffic congestion.

By 2041 it is predicted that

there will be an additional

70,000 vehicle movements within

the four avenues every day.

Work is also currently underway

on the Northern Corridor,

which is due to be completed

within the next three years.

But I struggle to see what

benefit the city will see from this

$240 million roading project,

which channels non-ratepaying

residents into the heart of St

Albans as they head into the

central city.

The built environment influences

behaviour and it will not

take long before this new fourlane

highway will be at capacity.

So what is the answer?

Modal shift – encouraging

those who can, to use a different

form of transport instead of a

single occupancy vehicle – walking,

cycling, catching a bus or

car pooling.

Perhaps if the money for this

project had been invested into

a decent passenger rail service

from the north we could have

had a true opportunity to influence

behaviour for the better

and created a truly sustainable

public transport option.

However, it would appear that

numerous authorities and agencies

have never taken seriously

the possibility of passenger rail.

The focus seems to be on the

bus network as our public transport

option even though the

bus routes are not continuously

separated from vehicles and

are still forced to deal with the

congestion street fight.

Plus changes to the bus network

now make it more difficult

for a lot of people who have

multiple changeovers and longer

waiting times.

With 50 per cent of car trips in

the city under 5km we need to

encourage the uptake of cycling

and walking as an alternative

mode of transport.

Survey after survey show

that there are a large number

of people wanting to cycle, but

choose not to because they feel

it is unsafe. The major cycleway

programme is designed to remove

this safety concern barrier

and encourage more people to

take up cycling.

CONGESTION:

Work turning

Cranford St

into a fourlane

major

arterial is

about to

begin, but

city councillor

Mike Davidson

isn’t sure the

money is

being well

spent. PHOTO:

GEOFF SLOAN ​

There was never an expectation

that the day these were

completed there would be hundreds

of new cyclists as it takes

time to change culture.

However, from cycleways

completed so far, the numbers

using these cycleways are

already exceeding the predicted

volumes.

It is important that the cycleway

programme is completed,

public transport becomes more

user-friendly and our transport

culture is changed. If we don’t the

congestion we are seeing today

will pale in comparison to what

will happen in the near future.

We need our streets and transport

network to work for everyone

no matter what age, ability

or form of transport used.

Readers respond to a

Nor’West News article

regarding businesses

on Cranford St worried

Northern Arterial upgrades

will force them to close

Conrad Fitz-Gerald – A bit

naive to expect the city council to

do something that actually helps

local businesses and residents.

Maree Clayton – Less cars!

More trains. No-brainier. Should

have been a priority, immediately

post-quake. South and north out

of the city. Quicker, easy. Less cars

on road, saving all round and less

stress. Sadly, too many missed

opportunities from a bunch of

bumbling bureaucrats. Need

an airport rail but alas we got a

bloody archway.

Jan Driscoll – Heavens,

there is a bike in the picture . . . a

rare sight indeed. Cranford St is

already a nightmare, especially

around 3 to 6pm. And with heavy

parking on both sides around

the garage and shopping centre

that will evidently be going and

then a massive expensive housing

development along there, you

have got a disaster in the making.

Feel really sorry for the businesses

around the Innes Rd and Cranford

St corner. Another example

of top quality planning. Adding

another lane to the Northern

Arterial won’t fix it either. Get rail

up and running.

Rob White – Well people

have had at least 30 years to get

used to this since it was first

planned, and put off, and then

off, and then back on again. The

bigger problem is the city council

actually agreeing to housing in

the swamp on the other side of

Cranford St.

Sylvia Oliver – It is so hard

on businesses after seven years

you would think things would

improve but, no, they get worse

all the time. One wonders why

our city council and so-called

Government cannot intervene

to protect the small businesses.

Makes me so angry.

Beverly Jackson – I live on

Cranford St. They’ve given no

consideration to the residents

trying to get out of their driveways.

It’s hard enough now.

Michelle Green – Traffic

today was horrendous, I queued

for ages on Cranford St bumperto-bumper

all way from Placemakers

to Main North Rd.

to the article regarding

Bishopdale New World

winning its battle to display

alcohol on the ends of

aisles

Glenis Shaw – I don’t think

it makes any difference. I like

it being sold in supermarkets,

easier and cheaper. Wine consumption

is not a problem to the

majority of people.

Geoff Oscar O’Connell – I

just wish Bishopdale New

World stocked more Monteith’s

Pilsner.

Lynda Byrnes – The majority

of people who shop in

supermarkets are sensible, don’t

let the few idiots ruin for the rest

of us. We buy our alcohol and

consume it sensibly with friends

over meals. They don’t ban the

caffeine drinks and other things

that effect our teenagers, why

make it hard to buy alcohol for

consenting adults?

Sharren Wilson – If they

have a licence to sell alcohol, it

makes absolutely no difference

whatsoever where it is placed in

the aisle.

responsibility. Are you going

to take away all my freedom of

choice because some people can’t

handle their drink or they are

addicted to cigarettes, chocolate,

Coca Cola, sugar, McDonald’s?

Like I said personal responsibility

Audrey Leslie – Alcoholic

products should not be sold in

supermarkets. It’s always the

ones who can least afford it that

are tempted to purchase alcohol

when they go into the supermarket

for food. I once watched

two young men looking in the

meat section, actually picked up

a meat package, then returned

it to the freezer and purchased

a carton of beers instead. Now

that’s sad.

Ann Vernon – Alcohol is a

dangerous drug. I personally

think a separate discrete area is

appropriate. In some supermarkets

you have to walk through

the alcohol section to access the

shop. We normalise binge drinking

in New Zealand and minimise

the serious harm it causes.

I try to limit this normalising

alcohol use with my children.

Having a different area does

not penalise adults in any way.

We no longer have cigarettes on

display. Why not the same for

alcohol?

Playcentre’s

bid to find

after fire

•From page 1

Ms O’Rourke said the playcentre,

which has a roll of 25 children, is

currently working towards finding

a new place to hold its sessions.

“We won’t really know what the

next steps are until we meet with

the insurance company . . . but the

hope is to run it out of somewhere

nearby,” she said.

Ms O’Rourke said the playcentre

will continue to support the families

“We don’t operate in the school

holidays, so that gives us a week to

sort somewhere out . . . we won’t let

it affect the families,” she said.

But Ms O’Rourke said there

would be a “shortfall” in terms of

the insurance payout due to high

demolition costs in the city.

“We’ve had huge support from

the community and playcentres

around the country,” she said.

Belfast Community Network

chief executive Lynda Goodrick

said the network of more than

Breastfeeding programme recognised

ST GEORGE’S Hospital staff

have been honoured for their

commitment to breastfeeding.

“Breastfeeding is important

and helps to lay the foundation

for good health in infancy

for mothers and babies,”

New Zealand Breastfeeding

Alliance executive officer Jane

Cartwright said.

She said for nine years staff at

the hospital’s maternity centre

have “served as a beacon in the

region” for their standards of

breastfeeding support and care

for new parents.

“Since the beginning of

this year, about 800 women

have discharged from St

George’s facilities exclusively

breastfeeding their babies -

this is a great start towards

breastfeeding babies when they

return home,” Ms Cartwright

said.

St George’s charge midwife

Andrea Robinson emphasised

the importance breastfeeding

plays in the reduction in rates

of childhood infections and

protection against later health

risks.

Ms Robinson said that

breastfeeding is one of the

smallest investments a country

can make to build its future

prosperity.

“We should all be proud

of being an integral part of

providing such a precious

investment to our women and

to the wider health of

our community,” Ms Robinson

said.

SERVICE: (From left) – Jane Cartwright, Sandra Wilson,

Julia Daly, Andrea Robinson, and Maree Lewington have

been recognised for their commitment to breastfeeding. ​

is at 130 Caledonian Rd to

see whether the sale could go

ahead.

However, he would not

release details of that conversation

as they were “commercially

sensitive.”

The property is next door to

the Caledonian Rd side of the

community centre site.

Cr Davidson said the current

community centre plans

took up most of the current

site, and once car parking was

included, there would be little

room for green space.

City council general

manager corporate services

Bruce Rendall said as the city

council is “still in negotiations

around acquiring an option

on the land” further comment

is not appropriate.

The matter has been referred

to the 2018-28 Long Term

Plan preparation process.

It has been delegated Mr

Rendall to negotiate the purchase.

by an electorate majority

increase from 2,500 in 2014 to

During the elections, I received

great feedback that residents

value being able to access me

up with April McLennan in

young New Zealanders to connect

April is one of four recipients for

‘Explosion of colour’ rewards gardeners

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Julia Evans

THE LOVELOCKS have done

it again.

Northwood residents Brian

and Janet Lovelock came away

with the premier gold at this

season’s spring gardening awards

from the Canterbury Horticultural

Society.

The couple also added two

gold awards from the Christchurch

Beautifying Association’s

spring garden awards to their

collection in the open and secret

garden categories.

“We’re pretty proud, we’ve

always been big gardeners,” Mrs

Lovelock said, they spend almost

every day outdoors.

She said the trophies will be

put in a display case at their

house until they have to be

returned for the next round of

summer judging.

Which she said the pair are

already working towards.

“Some of my seedlings are already

coming up. It never stops,”

Mrs Lovelock said.

Although the Lovelocks spend

every day in the garden together,

they wouldn’t often be caught

sitting out there having a cup of

tea.

“If we sit out there, we always

spot something that could be

better or needs to be fixed and

keep working,” she said.

But Mrs Lovelock said there

is nothing more rewarding than

their garden.

“You get the tiniest handful of

seed and watch it turn into an

explosion of colour in the garden

displays,” she said.

The Lovelock’s spring award

winning garden included tulips,

polyanthas and shrubs like rhododendrons

and azaleas.

But come November they’ll

be pulling out the annuals and

planting their summer garden.

Food for fundraiser

PRETZELS, THAI jelly, tapas,

Japanese curry, rice balls, sushi,

waffles and lolly cake.

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School

students tried dishes from

different countries.

Dean of international

students Louise Stanton said the

International Club, headed by

Amy Chen, organised the event

as a fundraiser for St Andrew’s

High School in Tonga.

One of the sisters from St

Andrew’s spoke to the school

last year and the Rangi students

were all struck by the struggle

the school still faced following

Cyclone Winston early last year.

Amy said being able to give

back is a very important part of

being a global citizen.

“St Andrew’s in Tonga

struggles to find enough money

to do what it needs to do. Many

of the families are unemployed

and because the school is funded

from fees, this means there isn’t

enough money for even the

basics like books and other dayto-day

needs,” she said.

Popular food at the lunch

included chocolate and fruit

waffles, Japanese rice balls and

the Thai jelly.

Ploy Kriangkriwakin and

classmate Ploy Laolerchai were

keeping the secret recipe for

their fun-shaped Thai jellies

that’s all I can say really,” said

Ploy.

“It’s sweet and delicious that’s

for sure.”

India Borelli, originally from

clearly a nod to her birthplace.

During International Week,

$1700 was raised for St Andrew’s

Expertise Built On Family Heritage

For Christchurch real estate agent

Pip Sutton, real estate is a family

heritage spanning four generations

over approximately 93 years.

It all started with her great-grandfather

Frederick in 1924, out of Lyttelton. Her

grandfather, Fred, continued working in

Lyttelton, setting up an office in London

Street, which still stands today.

Pip’s father Dave became a partner in Simes

real estate in Christchurch in the early 1970s

until 2005 when it was sold for retirement

purposes. From the age of just 18 months Pip

became part of it, with many early memories

of attending property auctions, visiting

building sites and regular office visits where

the auction gavel and lectern were often

used as play toys.

“I grew up in the business,” she says. “During

school holidays I worked in Dad’s office. I

spent a lot of time relieving as receptionist,

in accounts and assisting putting marketing

packages and the likes together, oh and lots

of Sunday drives around new developments

within the city and Lyttelton Harbour with

the family.”

On leaving school Pip gained a Bachelor

of Commerce & Management degree with

a marketing major. She gained valuable

experience and skills working as a top sales

and marketer for multi-national market

leaders within New Zealand and the UK.

In 2005, Pip returned to Christchurch to

commence her real estate career under the

guidance and wisdom of her father.

“This involved long hours of intensive

learning. He passed on an in-depth

understanding of Christchurch’s land and

development right through from the early

Lyttelton days. This included understanding

district plans, zoning, the development

process. How to research properties deeply

to uncover potentials for new owners. How

to listen to people and respond to their needs.

“He passed on that little bit of magic,

which had been handed down from three

previous generations of learnings from great

depressions, World Wars and within my

career, the Global Financial Crisis and pre

and post earthquake environments.”

In 2014, Pip joined Ray White Real Estate,

because she liked their in-depth attention to

real estate law and management style at the

Cashmere office, plus being a family brand

itself spanning back to the early 1900s, she

recognised the more caring nature of the

brand, perhaps due to over 100 years of

learnings being passed down too.

“You are working with people during a

milestone time in their life, they are often

already under stress. A real estate agent’s job

is to assist in relieving the stress, not adding

to it.”

Pip has become a successful and highly

regarded real estate salesperson across

the city. For her, the most enjoyable and

important part of the process is to spend

time with both buyers and sellers, using

her in-depth knowledge of the Canterbury

property environment to assist in achieving

the best possible outcome for her clients.

As she puts it: “My measure of success is the

quality of the results I achieve for my clients,

not the number of houses I sell. I would

rather take more time getting my client into

a better position than collecting listings and

making quick sales.”

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Love your dentures

Is it time to swap your generic denture appearance

for a beautiful, natural looking smile?

Internationally renowned dental

technician Richard Greenlees,

PGDipCDTech (University of Otago) of

Lovebite is the person to call.

His special point of difference is

rebuilding what he calls the Oral

Architecture, the structure and shape of

a patient’s face that is often lost following

years of wearing dentures.

Lovebite dentures address problems

that can arise due to years of the patient

wearing incorrectly fitting or poorly

functioning dentures, such as poor

occlusion (the way the teeth come

together), aesthetics, function and

hygiene.

An intricate knowledge and

understanding of facial features allows

Richard to return facial tissues back to the

correct position, reform lips, and restore

beauty and confidence.

Richard provides a friendly, discreet

service and personally guides his patients

through the transformation process to

create teeth with small nuances in the

fabrication, colour and shape.

Carmen, a recent patient said in a

thank you letter to Richard, “I highly

recommend your craftsmanship to anyone

wanting a natural looking smile. Because

you do your work in front of your client,

one is able to see how meticulous and

dedicated you are to ending up with a top

class result. My dentures are amazing.

They look like one’s own natural teeth. So

much time, effort and energy went into

the end result. Simply the best.”

Richard’s patients have varying needs,

from full denture replacement, to first

time immediate dentures, implant

supported dentures and metal partial

dentures.

Since he started making teeth in

1980 Richard has travelled extensively,

accumulating vast knowledge through

training and working in Japan, and

running his own practice in the

prestigious Harley Street, London for 15

years. He continues to teach his world

leading techniques globally.

Richard also creates porcelain crowns

and veneers, working with like-minded

dental professionals.

A beautiful new Lovebite smile

resembles nature and reflects the patient’s

character. It boosts confidence and helps

patients to look and feel years younger.

of stunning Lovebite dentures, visit

These before and after photographs

rejuvenation that can be achieved

These stunning lovebite full upper and

lower dentures have been expertly crafted by

internationally-recognised dental technician

Richard Greenlees at his Christchurch studio.

The combination of Richard’s skill, experience

(including 15 years in London’s prestigious

Harley Street) knowledge and revolutionary

techniques allow him to create beautiful

bespoke false teeth that truly resemble those

in nature and reflect each patient’s individuality

and unique character.

evenings get longer it is the ideal time to get

out of the house and learn something new

and meet some new people by taking part

in one of the wide range of nightclasses on

offer at Papanui High School for Term 4

beginning from Tuesday 24 October.

From Art to Yoga and everything in

Ensuring a safe

work place

Learning first aid is not only a part of

ensuring a safe work place, but also an

integral part of our engagement with

the wider community. We all learn the

necessary skills to ensure that in times of

emergency we are able to assist our work

colleagues, but are we able to take these

skills home, into the community or on to

the sports field?

Not all work places are the same and

the injury risk for each place can be

wide and variable. The office attended by

administrators does not carry the same

risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance

from a regular ambulance service. It is

therefore essential that you pick the right

first aid course to suit all of your activities

– both professional and social.

Take, for example, an office worker who

does not have a high risk work environment

and whose concern might be to ensure

that they can deal with minor cuts and

superficial injuries, or the ability to perform

effective CPR. These skills can be achieved

on a course of eight hours duration and

would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to

a sports field either as a spectator or player

when a higher level injury occurs. The

eight hour course covering unit standards

6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does

not cover head neck and spinal injuries,

eye injuries, hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of

the work place, in fact one in three injuries

occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen.

New Zealand children are twice as likely

to die through injury as children who live

in Australia. They mostly die as a result

of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the

home. Fatalities from leisure and sport are

not far behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the

additional unit standard 6400 and provides

a wide knowledge base for medium to high

risk environments. This course covers

many of the skills required to deal with

the most common injuries, such as falls

(which can result in head, neck and spinal

injuries) and dealing with complex scenes

such as motor vehicle accidents.

If you are not sure on the course best

suited to your needs, ask your accredited

first aid training provider. They can explain

the course content and give you options

that will best suit your needs. Look beyond

the workplace and consider your family

and your location. Check that you have a

good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date

with replenished items, and that everyone

knows where it is located.

Fast turnaround for

minor panel repairs

As we all know, having our car off the road for minor

panel repairs can be frustrating, but for customers of

SMART Repairs in Lichfield Street, it isn’t a problem.

“With our focus on fast turnaround,

getting customers back on the road

as quickly as possible is the way we do

business,” says owner Brian Caffell, who

runs the long-established panel shop

with his wife Maxine.

In addition, customers have the

benefit of a courtesy car, so they can stay

on the road while their vehicle is in the

workshop. There is also a free pick-up

and delivery service available if required.

Customers can be assured of topquality

workmanship at SMART

Repairs, with the workshop team having

over 40 years’ industry experience

between them, with services including

panelbeating, spraypainting, paintless

dent removal, (PDR) and mag wheel

repairs and painting.

As specialists in small to medium

panel repair work, no job is too small for

SMART Repairs, and with their friendly,

personal approach they make it easy for

customers who may be unsure what to

do if their vehicle has been scratched or

dented.

The team also provides quotes for all

insurance companies, and carry out

those repairs quickly and efficiently.

“We take pride in our work and ensure

that our customers are happy with the

results,” says Maxine.

SMART Repairs are currently looking

at expanding and incorporating a mobile

division, so they can come to you for

minor paint and interior trim repairs,

PDR and mag wheel repairs.

SMART Repairs is located at 272

Lichfield Street, at the Fitzgerald

Avenue end. Opening hours are

Monday to Friday, 8am-4.30pm.

To enquire about repairs to your

vehicle, please call in, or phone

377-0409.

LUTHER AND LLOYD:

TWO OUTRAGEOUS HERETICS?

SIX-WEEK COURSE

This year marks the 500th Anniversary of Martin Luther

nailing his thesis to the church in his German town of

Wittenberg (October 31). An action that unexpectedly

sparked the Reformation. This year also celebrates the

50th Anniversary of the heresy trial of Lloyd Geering

here in Aotearoa New Zealand. An event that was most

divisive for many of our churches.

This course will examine the huge impact of the two

men in their time, noting their significance for today.

Attention will be drawn to the different theological

perspectives involved.

Six-week course of 2 hour sessions

held on Thursday afternoons 2pm - 4pm

commencing on 19 October 2017

The course will be co-facilitated by Charles Manning and

Reverend Rodney Routledge. The course will draw on the

latest scholarship and will be interactive in format.

VENUE: Iona House, Aranui

Enrolments by 15 October by email to
