Taha Māori

Welcome to Taha Māori – a new online programme designed to build confidence and engagement with biculturalism across the Church.
Taha Māori is a series of Zoom discussions that take place over seven weeks on Thursdays from 11 March to 29 April 2021 (with a break in Holy Week). The basis for kōrero (discussion) is RNZ’s documentary series Land of the Long White Cloud which tells the stories of white New Zealanders who are confronting Aotearoa’s colonial past and present.
A New Zealand Prayer Book/He Karakia Mihinare o Aotearoa is used as a primary resource to upskill participants in the confident use of te reo liturgies, hīmene (hymns) and pronunciation.
The programme was put together by The Rev’ds Jacynthia Murphy, Megan Means and Sarah Moss and is open to all.

10.00am -11.00am Thursdays 11 March-29 April (except 1 April)
