Matariki at All Saints’

Whatever your faith, wherever you are on your faith journey, you are welcome at all events and services at All Saints’.

On the Sundays of midwinter, in addition to the usual 8am Mass and 10.30am High Mass, there will be four contemplative, candlelit services to mark Māori New Year. Each service will be followed by supper and mulled wine in the back hall. Nau mai, tauti mai– please join us!
