From the NZ Herald 25th July 1931 to celebrate the 90th anniversary of St Paul’s: “It was no accident of history that St Paul’s and a new town should have begun life together. They were men of courage and vision who set their homes and trading stations on the bracken wastes of these hills, and they were pious men. And so it followed naturally that their early concern was to raise a house of worship, perhaps their dearest link with the land from which they had come.”

One of our favourite things about being a part of a church family is gathering around the table and enjoying church lunch together. The great news is, it's that time again! The kids can go wild on the bouncy castle while you have a chance to meet some new people and catch up with your mates. We'll be serving Chicken Chimichurri prepared by our superstar volunteers - email Jennifer if you'd like to be on the team.
