What is the greatest gift on earth
it is a human being

Rangi Davis is a mother of seven grown children and twenty-two mokopuna.  Born to strong fluent Maori speaking women, and grounded in nature.  Tikanga Maori and Christianity has been the base of her groundedness.

Having a deep appreciation for nature and natural elements through a Maori world view, a strong sense of values both Maori and Pakeha along with creative initiatives holds dear to her heart.  Strengthening   wahine leadership for the sake of her whanau, community, hapu and iwi is a strong calling.

JAZZ VESPERS

Sunday 16th July 7pm

MUSIC TO HEAL AND INSPIRE at Takapuna Methodist Church

Once again the Takapuna Music Group presents an evening of jazz-based music-making in a service of worship – a blend of music, prayers and thoughtful ideas, making jazz an integral part of the occasion.

This form of worship dates from the 1960s, when it originated in New York, and has proved increasingly popular over the years.

This year the Group is featuring the Camerata Chamber Choir conducted by Jenny Firth, who will present extracts from “A Little Jazz Mass” by the well-known British Choral composer Bob Chilcott, combined with a number of modern hymns and songs, all with a jazz –based accompaniment.  The audience will be encouraged to swing along with the singers.

On piano we feature the wonderful young jazz pianist Crystal Choi, already making a name for herself in the jazz music world.  Crystal will entertain with some of her expert improvisations as well as leading the accompaniment for the Jazz Mass and songs.  The presbyter, Rev Peter Norman will lead the service and provide commentaries.
