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 10am. Once every month we have a parish meeting and shared meal following the service. Our new Vicar is the Ven.Canon Helen Roud who begins with us on the 1st June,2018.

We also have worship services at 7pm on the first Sunday of the month for Taize Services-music, chant, meditation(Sunday 1st July, Sunday 2nd September and Sunday 2nd December) and there are either ‘Poetry and Prayer’ or “Centering Prayer” services on Sundays at 7pm —27th May and 10th June(every two weeks).All welcome to these services which are followed by tea and coffee.

This year 2018, the Addington Fun Fair and Concert will be held on Saturday 24th November 11am till 3.00pm(if wet Sunday 26th-12.30-4.00pm).Hope you can put this in your date calendar and come along.
