Nau mai, haere mai. Welcome to St. George's, an Anglican Church in the Diocese of Waiapu.

Our church sits
on the historic battle site of Pukehinahina/Gate Pâ, which was fought on 29 April 1864. This part of our story calls us to a mission of reconciliation. We try to be welcoming of everyone who walks through our door – above our door the words are written “All who enter here be reconciled”. We believe in the principles of justice, social equality and human rights, and we seek to be present to and with our community.

Our church is a space for people to explore and express their faith, and within our sanctuary is a deep sense of the sacred and peaceful presence.

The church is open to everyone each weekday from 9 am to 12 noon. It is a haven of peace and tranquility in a busy world. You are very welcome to come in and sit quietly and meditate in this restful place.
