The Taihape Anglican Church is a friendly welcoming community of faithful and faith filled people who gather together to worship God in both traditional and creative style. 

We have a dedicated, committed team who offer pastoral care, bible-based teaching in small groups, intercessory prayer, children's services and community outreach. 

We are well known for our hospitality and our high quality organists. 

Outlying country church services are held regularly. 

St Margaret's Church is over 100 years old and is under the Historic Places Trust. 

Visitors are very welcome to view this beautiful church and join us at a Sunday service that is followed by morning tea.
