We are a large parish with four churches, of which three are currently in use as worship centres. 
Our vision is "The world alight for Jesus Christ" and our mission is "To teach people to be disciples of Christ in the power of his Holy Spirit."

Each centre has its own style.  Christ Church has an intimate traditional New Zealand Prayer Book communion service at 8am every Sunday, and a less traditional communion service with children's ministry at 10am. St Chad's has a traditional New Zealand Prayer Book communion service at 9.45, with great singing. St Oswald's (10am) lies somewhere in between, and is noted for its country friendliness and great morning teas.

Everyone is welcome to attend any of our worship services.
