Central Hawke's Bay Anglican Parish

About Us

Central Hawkes Bay Parish was created in October 2015 - an amalgamation of the parishes of Waipawa, Waipukurau, Takapau, and Porangahau.   These now four distinct faith communities within our parish.   Each retains its unique identity while sharing in the wider life of the parish.

We are communities on a journey - discovering what it is to be God's people - responding to God who is love and who gives us life.    While members of our faith communities are primarily older and Pakeha we seek to be inclusive, valuing the experiences and gifts of all.    Our worship is normally centred on A New Zealand Prayer Book - He Karakia Mihinare o Aotearoa, though each faith community explores different ways of worshipping and connecting with the wider communities in which they are based.
