Our statement: "Loving God.  Loving Community."

We understand this statement in four ways:

1 We have a loving God who reaches out to us.

2 We respond by loving God in lives of worship.

3 We grow in loving community with one another.

4 We demonstrate God's love in our community.


The Catechism describes the mission of the church as "to proclaim the good news of God's Kingdom, to make disciples, to work for justice and peace; and to strive for reconciliation and healing in a broken world."

In living out this mission we aim to be faithful, attentive, expectant, inclusive and generous.

Please join us for our Sunday service at 9.30am.  

Service Times

Sunday 9.30am:   Our Sunday Service is a combination of a friendly, informal welcome with a contemporary Anglican service.  We enjoy each other's company, sing, share together, pray, listen to scripture, laugh and minister to one another, finishing with morning tea.  Excellent programmes for children and young people are provided.  


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