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 are very grateful that St Marys has survived the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes with almost no damage and services are running as usual.

Our thoughts and hearts are with people who have lost so much in the last few years – loved ones, homes and livelihoods – and for the other historic churches that have suffered so much more than us. If you would like someone to talk to, please feel welcome to give us a call or drop by on any Sunday.

We hold a regular Eucharist service every Sunday at 10am. Once every month we have a parish meeting and shared meal following the service.

We also have worship services at 7pm on the first Sunday of the month at 7pm. These are either ‘Poetry and Prayer’ or Taizé (music and chant) services.

This year 2017, the Addington Fun Fair and Concert will be held on Saturday 25th 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.
