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?

You are very welcome to come into our calm space for a time of reflection, prayer and perhaps light a candle for people you miss.  We welcome visitors into Cathedral during the week from 9am – 4pm.
