Te Reo Resources

Would you like to include more Te Reo Māori in your worship? Rev Sharon Ross Ensor, Director of Presbyterian Church Schools in NZ has a free Te Reo Māori resource which could be of use to those leading worship.

For example:

Nau mai ki tēnei whare karakia o tātou.                                               
Welcome to this church of ours
…………………..
Leader: Kia noho a Ihowā ki a koutou. The Lord be with you.
All: A ki a koe ano hoki. And also with you.
………………………
Leader: Kia tau tonu te rangimārie o te Atua ki a koutou
The peace of God rest on you continually.
All: A ki a koe ano hoki.
And also on you.

………………………
Leader: Kia noho a Ihowā ki a koutou.
The Lord be with you.
All: Mā Ihowā koe a manaaki
The Lord bless you.
………………………..
WELCOME
E te whānau a Te Karaiti Brothers and sisters in Christ
ngā mihi aroha ki a tātou katoa. Warm greetings to you all
Kia ora tatou. Hello to you all.
…………………………

… etc.
