BAPTISMS

We respond positively to all enquiries from baptisms (Christening a child is another term for the same thing). 

CONFIRMATIONS

This are conducted by the Bishop, as required, for candidates prepared by the Priest. Anyone who has been baptised, or (in special cases) is preparing for baptism, may present themselves for confirmation, which is regarded as the re-affirmation of one’s baptismal vows. Recent church practice in New Zealand is for candidates for confirmation to be over the age of 16 years.

WEDDINGS

We welcome enquiries from couples seeking a Christian wedding or marriage blessing.  Services will usually be taken by the Parish Priest or another Anglican Priest.

FUNERALS

The Priest, as soon as possible after being notified, will contact the bereaved family to offer support and spiritual guidance, and to discuss the format of the service.  Ministry is offered to bereaved families irrespective of their church affiliation, and every effort is made to provide a funeral service which is appropriate to the circumstances of the deceased and their family, working alongside the funeral director.
