This is our relaxed family-friendly service for whānau of all shapes and sizes. Whatever 'family' looks like for you, you are welcome here. It is a 45 minute service with creative interaction. We use non-religious language to make it accessible to all.


A gathering that starts with a light brunch-style meal and includes faith discussion. All are welcome to be part of this collaborative style of worship.

The Corner community hubs

We have two community hubs. The Merivale Corner operates out of All Souls, to connect people in the wider Merivale-St Albans area. Other community activities are coordinated by The Corner St Albans and held at the community centre at 1049 Colombo Street. See here for details.

You will find within our community a sense of welcome, and that all are valued at the table of Christ.

The parish of Merivale - St Albans is a growing and inclusive Anglican faith community. Our purpose is to serve and heal the world by building neighbourhoods that live out the Gospel imperative to love and care. For us, this means creating a loving family of faith. We are guided by our core values: faith, integrity, inclusiveness, compassion, social justice and stewardship. Members come from Christchurch and surrounding areas to form a racially, ethnically, and economically diverse congregation.

We welcome all people, regardless of who someone has been, is currently, or will be. You are welcome regardless of gender, ethnicity, sexuality, rich or poor, adult or child, healthy or ill, educated or uneducated, a parent or without children, broken or healed; and we invite you to join our family.
