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

We also have worship services at 7pm on the first Sunday of the month of Sunday for 2nd September and Sunday 2nd December for Taize Services-music, chant, meditation and there are “Centering Prayer” services on Sundays at 7pm —22nd July and 5th August(every two weeks).All welcome to these services which include 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 25th-12.30-4.00pm).Hope you can put this in your date calendar and come along.
