It's not that easy being human. But help is at hand! Twenty centuries of Christian thought and devotion help us navigate the complexities of contemporary life, without lapsing into despair or closing our eyes to pressing issues. As we come together, we find that God has given us the rich tradition of Christian thought and history for just such a complex time as this. It's here, and now, that we seek to live out God's mission in the world.
This mission is oriented in three directions:
We're also part of the Anglican Diocese of Wellington, giving us lots of opportunities for service, training and global reach.
Two main worship services happen at St Michael’s. Here we glimpse the beauty of the God revealed as Trinity, and are formed as followers of Christ.
Our 9am service is warm, intimate and reflective. We use the Anglican liturgy from the New Zealand Prayer Book and share communion together. One Sunday a month (usually the third), the organ is played, and we sing classic hymns.
Our 10.30am service is vibrant and friendly, combining old and new forms in music, liturgy, and preaching. Sunday School classes begin in church before heading out for their own programme. Youth group happens at the same time as the main service.
