We aspire to be a vibrant, relevant, dynamic, missional Church
We look to the future with excitement and hope as the Body of Christ in the Auckland Diocese. Our region is graced with over 100 churches offering a diverse range of worship styles from contemporary to traditional and everything else in between. We offer new and exciting avenues to explore faith outside the physical church, so you can connect with God in different ways that suit you.

Coronavirus update – Alert Levels 2 & 3
As you are aware, an announcement was made on Tuesday 11 August that Auckland would go into Level 3 lockdown from midday Wednesday 12 August while the rest of the country goes to Level 2. This lockdown is initially until midnight Friday 14 August, but extensions are highly likely.
For the diocese, this means areas north of Wellsford and east of Pokeno are at Level 2, while the rest of the diocese is at Level 3.
Level 3 means we should all work from home and cannot gather except for weddings and tangihanga which up to 10 people can attend. While this period of lockdown may only be for three days, it would be wise to prepare for online worship on Sunday and beyond if necessary.
At Level 2 we can still gather for worship on Sunday but with no more than 100 people present, Communion in one kind only and non-contact signs of peace.
In all cases extra attention should be given to personal hygiene and venue cleaning. Contact tracing is also important and use of the Government app and building QR codes is encouraged.
While this is, once again, an uncertain and anxious time for many, we have been this way before and now have good processes and procedures in place. Let’s all play our part in making sure our communities and people in the wider community stay safe.
