Oihi Pilgrimage 2014
In 2014 we celebrate the bicentennial of Reverend Samuel Marsden’s famous Christmas Day sermon at Rangihoua Bay, Oihi in the Bay of Islands. The Miramar-Seatoun-Strathmore Parish is organising a pilgrimage to Oihi and other places of historic interest in the area to Anglicans to take place over four days (three nights) from 17 to 20 February 2014, beginning and ending in Wellington. There are still some places available for anyone who would like to make the pilgrimage (but hurry as places will need to be confirmed as soon as possible). You can view the full details on Google Docs (you will need a Google+ account to view this) or contact Errol Pike by email
