St Francis Church Tairua
Merry Christmas, Tairua. NZ. World.
The Lord is come!
Under Traffic Light Orange, St Francis Church is functioning as follows: We offer two Sunday services; the first a 9.30 communion service for folk with a vaccine pass; the second a 5pm service for anyone who wishes to attend, including unvaxed folk. The 5pm service is held in St Francis House so we can use the internet resources available and is more informal.
Naturally, both services follow Government & Diocesan requirements: masks and social distancing as set out in the Orange Traffic Light system.
[Op Shop open – Thursdays and Saturdays 9.30 – 1pm, weather dependent. Vaccination passes required for entry to Shop and St Francis House, but we are putting loads outside for all to browse through. Masks please and please use our App or sign in to record your visit. Thank you. We look forward to seeing you there.]
