Reaching out


Queenstown Anglican Church’s Barbara Hercus lights a candle in memory of the Christchurch quake victims. 

Hercus led the Earl Street church’s regular 10am service yesterday, but made special mention of the disaster. 

“We light this candle in memory of those killed in the Christchurch earthquake and the many who are not accounted for and pray for the friends and families at this agonising time – particularly you’re thinking of emergency services and people doing all the work who will have family problems all of their own.”
