Services
Worship is central to all we do as a community – it is the ‘engine room’ of our life together. We invite you to join us for one of our services; children are very welcome in worship at St Andrew’s. Our Sunday services are based on the New Zealand Prayer Book / He Karakia Mihinare o Aotearoa, and include music, liturgical prayer, readings from Scripture, a sermon, and communion.
 

Sunday Services:
