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. Go ahead and explore this site to find out what’s happening in your Anglican community…. there is so much to discover!
New Zealand remains at Alert Level 1 in response to the pandemic.
While there are now no limitations on our ability to gather for all our activities in the usual way, we still need to take care, as the virus remains a global reality and a community outbreak could occur in New Zealand again.
Caution should be exercised around practices such as sharing the Peace and the Eucharist, as some people may not feel comfortable about shaking hands or sharing the common cup. Taking Communion in one kind (the bread only) is an acceptable way to participate.
Other guidelines are:
Make hand sanitiser available and clean facilities regularly.
Contact tracing – keep track of where you’ve been and who you’ve seen. Ministry units must still display a QR code and record keeping is recommended.
Face coverings must legally be worn on all public transport in, from and through Auckland and on domestic flights throughout the country.
Keep your distance – staying a safe distance from people you don’t know will help minimise the spread of COVID-19 if community transmission returns.
If you have cold or ‘flu symptoms, stay home and call your doctor or Healthline. Get COVID-19 tested and self-isolate if you are told to do so by health authorities.
Practise good hygiene – wash hands frequently, cover coughs and sneezes.
Continue to be kind to others and be kind to yourself.
