Welcome to Waiapu Cathedral


Whakapaingia te Atua e whakamine nei i a tātou.
Whakamoemititia te Atua kua kotahi nei tātou.

Blessed be God who calls us together.

Praise to God who makes us one people.

What's on?

We are in the Advent season leading up to Christmas when we offer some very special services. This week ends with the Nine Carols and Lessons service on Sunday evening 17 December.   We would love you to join us in this time of reflection and celebration.

You are also welcome to come into our calm space for a time of quiet at this busy time and perhaps light a candle for people you miss.  We welcome visitors into Cathedral during the week from 9am – 4pm and Saturday mornings, as well as during Sunday services.
