Glorifying God
the Holy Trinity

Knowing God, shaping community, growing in Christ and living beyond ourselves

We are a missionary people, committed to the proclamation of the good news of Jesus, teaching the faith, the service of others, and the transformation of the world.

To be Anglican is to be part of a rich and diverse church experience that links us to a worldwide community of 75 million people called the Anglican Communion. We are a people of two books: The Bible, which reveals God’s living Word in Jesus Christ; and the Prayer Book, which expresses our faith through our prayer and worship.

Church life is expressed locally in our ministry units which are united within a region called a diocese, which is led by the Bishop. The Diocese of Auckland extends from the Far North to the Hauraki Plains and the Coromandel.

Mission and vision: The Healthy Church Model

The Healthy Church Model captures our vision for our life and work together, both as a diocese and at the local church level. It provides a framework that helps congregations celebrate their strengths, identify areas for improvement and create space for creative new initiatives.
