Central Hawke's Bay Anglican Parish


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


God of past, present and future, 

be with us as we take our next steps as nations together. 

may we strive to love our neighbours as ourselves.

Listening and speaking with respectful kindness, embracing difference.

Remembering how much all have been forgiven by you,

may we offer friendship, grant mercy and seek peace and justice in our shared future.
