In July 1841, shortly after his arrival in NZ, Bishop Selwyn issued a license to the first vicar of St Paul’s. The original license was among the many items gifted to St Paul’s recently. On it is a handwritten addition which says: “Provided also so that you shall use due diligence in the study of the language of the native inhabitants of New Zealand, and be ready when required to minister to their spiritual wants in like manner as to those of all the other inhabitants of your District without distinction of persons.” You can view this and other treasures on our FB page: The Story of St Paul’s.

We are so grateful to Artisan Flooring and the McLeod family from St Paul’s for their incredible generosity in providing the replacement carpet for our beautiful church. The old carpet was installed in 1969 and was long overdue for replacement! The new carpet, which will provide a walking perimeter, is of stunning quality, hard wearing, eco friendly and will help to dampen the sound of footsteps during services while protecting our kauri floor for subsequent generations.

Just when we all finally got the hang of the exit code for the Wilson’s carpark, the system has been upgraded and the code is no longer needed. A swipe card is now required to get out of the carpark after 9pm on weeknights or 10pm on Sundays. This means that if you are attending a midweek event you will need to get swiped out of the carpark by the event host as the gates close automatically at 9pm. We have the best negotiators and have made every effort to push the time out, but you can’t fight city hall!
