Regular Sunday Worship
All ages are welcome at St. Paul's as all generations have something to teach and offer the church. It is great to see children and young people with their families in the church itself during the services (please don’t worry about the noise!), or at Godly Play, which runs at our 10 am service for children of all ages. There's an outline of Godly Play activities HERE, and a video HERE.
All Services are temporarily being held in our Church Hall as our Church has been declared Earthquake prone.
Both services are based on A New Zealand Prayer Book but the two services have a slightly different style. Our 8am congregation is a more traditional service while the 10am is more contemporary.
You are welcome to share Communion with us, where we have both wine and grape juice available. Or, if you wish, you can simply ask for a blessing. We have a place of prayer available in the Church Office off the Hall during Communion, and there is always someone available to talk or pray with you.
Know that you are loved and welcome here in this place of sanctuary. Nau mai, haere mai. All are welcome here.
