Welcome to Taha Māori – an online programme of Zoom discussions designed to build confidence and engagement with biculturalism across the Church.
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. Recordings and resources are available below and on the Taha Māori YouTube channel.
Ki te wheiao, ki te ao mārama.
He hōnore, he korōria ki te Atua.
He maungārongo ki te whenua,
he whakaaro pai ki ngā tāngata katoa.
The breath, the energy of life;
to the daylight, to the world of light.
All honour, all glory to God.
Peace upon this land,
and good thoughts to all people.
