"We are an inclusive parish
offering a warm welcome
to everyone who walks
through our door"

Welcome from St John's Vicar
The Reverend Sue Beverly

St John's, Ōtūmoetai is an Anglican Church in the Diocese of Waiapu. We are an inclusive parish offering a warm welcome to everyone who walks through our door. We believe that we are all loved by God regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, ability or sexuality. Children and young people are always welcome, especially at our Messy Church and Enter the Mystery services and events. For us Christianity means generosity, gratitude, humility; peace, beauty and truth.

We are committed to our local community and offer a wide range of activities and services. Our OASIS OP shop is well known in the area and we have a thriving Play Group and Toy Library. A Walking Group meets every Monday for a walk but also for morning tea at which anyone who does not wish to walk is welcome. For more details on these and other groups go to our Community page.

Baptism Christening

"The Church community is a place
where we celebrate all aspects
of our lives with one another"

Baptisms - Weddings - Funerals

The Church community is a place where we celebrate all aspects of our lives with one another.
This is especially the case for significant events such as when someone joins the Church family in baptism, when two people are united in marriage and when we say goodbye to our loved ones and celebrate their lives after they have died.
Even if you are not currently a regular Church attender, we will be privileged to help as you celebrate these milestones find out more at our Ceremonies page.
