New Associate Priest, Reverend Kerry Davis

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Reverend Kerry Davis to our Associate priest position. Kerry and his wife Vaoa will join the parish in late March. For the past four years, Kerry has served as the Missioner/Vicar at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Kerry will bring experience and a wide range of gifts to St Aidan’s complementing and building upon the existing ministry. Please pray for their family as they conclude their current role and also for the Church community of Holy Sepulchre as they prepare to farewell Kerry and look to their next chapter.

Upcoming Events:

Church in the Traffic Light System

New Zealand has now moved to the traffic light system. So we are now back in the church building. My Vaccine Passes will be currently required for services, events, and other gatherings held in our church and in our buildings. There may be opportunities for exemptions, and we will provide updates regarding this.

Summer Services
