It's (still) Eastertide...

We can still say 'Happy Easter' ...and will be able to say 'Happy Birthday Christian Church' on 5 June!

Eastertide started on Easter Sunday and commemorates the time the resurrected Jesus spent on earth (the period between Easter Day and Ascension). It concludes on Pentecost/Whitsunday (5 June in 2022), when we celebrate the birth of the Church. 

Pentecost combined service - 5 June

We have a Combined Service at 10am on 5 June 2022.

Come Holy Spirit, Wairua Tapu come!

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.
