We are a diverse congregation of people from a wide variety of ages and stages and walks of life. There are some new members here, as well as others who have worshipped here for decades.
As an Anglican parish, we have links to a much wider body. We are part of the Diocese of Wellington, the Anglican Church in Aotearoa New Zealand and Polynesia and the world-wide Anglican Communion.
Some of the first people you may come in contact with here are:
John Freebairn, is Bishop's Warden.
Joanna Boyd, the parish secretary, answers the phone and replies to your emails. Joanna is the efficient receptionist and administrator who ensures that everything runs smoothly in the background. She is here to help you!
Yvonne Rae, is the People’s Warden, elected by parishioners as their representative.
We are fortunate to have a team of clergy regularly rostered for services. You may meet –
Geneth Davies, priest, on the pastoral care team, regularly at morning prayer
Ross Downes, priest and builder
Amy Houben, priest assistant with a license to offer ministry with rest home communities and leads the pastoral care team She is married to Tony and they have a young son named Oran.
Faye Davenport, deacon and sacristan, and a nurse
Derm Beuchanan, priest
We are a parish which is not afraid of questions – we believe that tussling with issues enhances our faith. An Education for Ministry (EFM) group is currently meeting in the parish, as well as a couple of home groups. Each year, there is a Lent study.
Monthly, we offer a free lunch-time concert, and a lunch for Seniors. There is an AAW group who meet here (Association of Anglican Women) Please click here to find out more about the St. Peters AAW. Every year we hold a parish fair (or two!); and we enjoy parish social events.
If you would like to know more about us, email Joanna or come to a service. We look forward to talking to you!
