We are at Alert Level 1 – there are no restrictions on gathering. But please continue to keep a record of where you go, use the QR codes where you can and do stay home if unwell.
However, you say it you are ‘welcome’ here.
What follows is a bit about who we are and what we do when not afflicted by a virus; obviously at this time, much has changed.
The Wakatipu Community Presbyterian Church is one Church that encompasses St Andrew’s – Queenstown, St Margaret’s – Frankton, and St John’s – Arrowtown.
Every month on the 2nd Sunday we also offer a service in Kingston, 3pm at the St John’s Room, and every 2nd month at the top of the lake at the Glenorchy Community Church. Thus we are able to offer a variety of church services in Queenstown and surrounding areas (see the panel on this page for times). Wherever you are we are close by. We are congregations of the Southern Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand (PCANZ), and members of the Synod of Otago and Southland.
Most Sundays worship services are held at each location, however, occasionally we will combine at one of our locations or elsewhere. At this time we typically celebrate holy communion and enjoy a shared meal together. We are a warm and diverse community, a church of the nations for the nations, with members from all parts of New Zealand and overseas. It is a delight to listen to conversations held in Portuguese, Korean, Mandarin, Indonesian, Tuvaluan, Spanish, Tongan and of course English, albeit broken English. Thankfully laughter and the Spirit of God transcend language!
We look forward to meeting you; join us in worship at Queenstown, Arrowtown, or Frankton. Alternately join us at one of the many other activities that are available every week!
God is doing great things through the Church in Queenstown, throughout the Wakatipu, and beyond. We thank God for the opportunity to support our Wakatipu neighbours, and visitors to the region and for rich partnerships in Vanuatu, Nepal, and elsewhere. We are excited to be part of God’s Mission. Join us.
