Welcome to the website of our Parish, which extends over a large geographical area from the coast out to the ranges and is served by a number of historic churches, all working together as one Parish. In worship and in service we aim to bring together people of all ages to worship God, grow together and serve God's world.
Our main churches in Takapau, Waipukurau and Waipawa but we have several others in our smaller communities- many of these churches are open for you to rest, think and pray. This website aims to give you a flavour of our common life.We look forward to meeting you
BECAUSE WE ARE IN LEVEL FOUR LOCKDOWN TO OVERCOME THE COVID-19 VIRUS, WE ARE CURRENTLY UNABLE TO WORSHIP TOGETHER BUT ARE TRYING TO STAY IN TOUCH THROUGH OUR EMAILS, WEBSITE, FACEBOOK PAGES AND PHONE CALLS. PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE INCLUDED IN THIS NETWORK.
God who brings life to creation and to people, help us to see you at work in Central Hawke's Bay and to work with you so your kingdom grows here. By the grace of your Spirit, be the source of our love, our energy and our songs so that, separately and together, we may draw closer to you. May we speak of you and share your life with people who live, work and visit here, bringing glory to your name through Jesus Christ our Lord and in the power of the Spirit. Amen
Our three main churches: St Mark's at Takapau, St Mary"s at Waipukurau and St Peter's at Waipawa.
