A new church is born… the first in the Christchurch Diocese for nearly 40 years.
All Souls’ Church, in the Parish of Merivale St Albans, is the first new Anglican suburban church to be built from scratch, from foundations to zenith, in 40 years.
The congregation are celebrating the milestone and view it as a symbol of hope and renewal.
Services for Sunday 4 November are on at three different times:
- 8am — Morning Prayer
- 10am — All Souls’ Patronal Festival including their first baptism in the new church and shared morning tea after the service
- 4pm — a special celebratory Evensong service attended by Bishop-elect Peter Carrell.
