Lenten Study 2024 – God’s Call: who is God calling us to be?

Instead of the weekly ecumenical services, the Lenten study is held at two times each week:

New Diocese Centre Next Door

Work is starting again on building the new Waiapu Diocese Centre next door on Hastings St. The delay was caused by wall issues with the neighbouring properties and contamination in the exposed soil.

Atkin Construction has been awarded the contract for constructing the office building adjacent to the Cathedral.  We’ll keep you updated.
