DUNEDIN INNER CITY MINISTERS GROUP
The ministers of Dunedin’s inner city churches meet regularly through the year. That covers a wide range of churches, from Presbyterian, Anglican, Methodist and Roman Catholic to Salvation Army, Seventh Day Adventist and Coptic Orthodox. We meet to share what is happening in the different churches, to support one another, and to do some things together. Some of the ministers take turns at presenting the weekly Radio church service, which is broadcast each Sunday morning at 8.30 am on Otago Access Radio – 105.4 FM.
Often we have celebrated Pentecost Sunday by worshiping together in the evening. This year on 12 June we gathered at St Joseph’s cathedral for a service which included a creative dance brought by First Church Youth, Tongan songs, and anthems sung by a combined choir from a number of churches. The Roman Catholic Bishop Colin Campbell preached.
At the beginning of Advent, candles are exchanged among the different churches, with greetings being carried from one congregation to another.You may remember the old children’s song “Jesus bids us shine” which included the words “you in your small corner and I in mine.” By meeting together, the inner city churches remind ourselves that we share this corner, and we’re all in this together, shining the light of the gospel in the centre of Dunedin.
