Ashhurst is a small country town with a population of about three thousand, it is set in the very beautiful Pohangina valley at the junction of the Manawatu and Pohangina rivers.
As the people of the Parish of Pohangina we believe that it is God's greatest desire to be in a relationship with all people, so we therefore seek to be a place where all in the community feel that they can belong and be part of God's Kingdom. This includes both the parish and the wider community. We want to be "A place to belong".
Our dedicated ministry team and currently, four music groups alternate each week in leading a contemporary, liturgical service, one that aims to present the Gospel as relevant, inspirational and applicable to everyday life.
St Mary Magdalene is located on the main street in the Ashhurst. Our main service is held at 10.00 am every Sunday catering for all ages with a children's program each Sunday during term time.
We have a quieter more formal service that is run on the first Sunday of the month at 8.00 a.m.
Thursday 9.00am communion is reflective and relaxed, held in the sunny foyer of the church.
Messy Church is hands on experience catering for families on the second Sunday of the month from 4.00 pm and is followed by a light meal.
We have adult house groups running throughout the week.
Little Kiwis is a playgroup for parents and their preschool children on Tuesday mornings from 9.30 – 11.30 am.
