A Heritage Church at the heart of Addington


The Anglican Church of St Mary the Virgin has been an integral part of the Addington community in Christchurch City, New Zealand since 1867. It graces the tree-filled space in the centre of Church Square.

We hold a regular Eucharist service every Sunday at 10.30am. The church is open on Fridays for “Tea, Coffee & Conversation’ at 10am(till 12.00pm).

On the first Sunday of each month, at 7pm,we hold Contemplative Prayer or Taize Services  (for dates please check events column).

Thank you to all the people who made the 2020 Addington Fun Fair and Concert such a successful event. We especially appreciate the support from the Waihoro/Spreydon Community Board and the Maurice Carter Charitable Trust. The Fair date for 2021 will be Saturday 20th November 11am till 3pm.
