Service once a month. Summerset Retirement Village

St Anne's is known for being friendly and welcoming, and deeply grounded in the Gospel message.  The gathered community truly reflects the diversity of our local population.  While we always enjoy our social times together we draw our strength from our belief in Jesus Christ, living out God's call on our lives, whatever that might be for each one of us.  

Our vision is that "we are a welcoming and accepting family, worshipping and following Christ, loving and serving in the world"

We have one service on Sunday morning at 10.00am.  We value participation over performance, and while we use the Prayer Book, you will find us relaxed and informal.  We rotate through a range of different services on Sunday morning including a youth service, Taize and an informal service.  During the week there is a playgroup, a craft group and a youth group.  We take a service at Summerset Retirement Village in Aotea once a month.  Contact us for more details about any of these.  

We run St Anne's pantry (accessed via the CAB), one of the major foodbanks in the Porirua area.  We also run a $1 Give and Take Day one to two times per year, where a $1 koha is given at the door, and people give or take clothing and household items.  

St Anne's is tucked away to the east of the motorway with signposting right off Mungavin Avenue to Ranui Heights, then turn right at the next full intersection into Arawhata Street.  The church drive on the left leads up the hill to parking at the door.  

No reira waiho ko te aroha o Te Matua Kaha Rawa hei korowai mou.
May the love of Almighty God enfold you!
