Service Times

There's something for everyone: please join us.


This service uses the Book of Common Prayer on the 1st and 5th services of the month, the other services use the Anglican New Zealand Prayer Book. This is a contemplative and traditional service with no music. Once a month we share a light breakfast after our service.


This is our unashamedly traditional service which uses the Anglican New Zealand Prayer Book with hymns. A family friendly service, it includes activity packs for children. After our service you are welcome to join us for morning tea.


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. 

1st Sunday of month Feb to Nov

Taizé service.  We ask that you arrive and leave in silence. A contemplative service in the circular chapel.


An intimate service with strong fellowship, this service uses the Anglican New Zealand Prayer Book and traditional hymns with organ accompaniment. We have morning tea together afterwards every week. 

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.
