The Anglican Diocese of Christchurch has moved to a stunning new location at 10 Logistics Drive, Harewood.
After many years in temporary accommodation the move represents an exciting step forward for the Diocese. The new office, which was formerly the base of Stonewood Homes, is architecturally designed and spacious. With plenty of parking and a thoughtful layout it combines both practicality and aesthetic appeal.
The move comes at the end of long search for a permanent workspace by Diocesan Management.
“I’m delighted we have found such a great premise and to finally be settled at a permanent spot. It’s a large, modern building very well suited to the work we do” says Edwin Boyce, Diocesan Manager.
The new office has the additional benefit of bringing together all Anglican Centre, Mission and Ministry, CPT and Anglican Care staff under one roof. Theology House is also on site.
“Staff are really enjoying being together, it makes it much easier to share ideas and work collaboratively” says Edwin.
Prior to the move, Diocesan staff were spread across temporary accommodation on St Peter’s church grounds after their office was destroyed in the February 2011 earthquake.
“I would like to give my sincere thanks to the Parish of Upper Riccarton and Yaldhurst for hosting us for the last six years,” says Edwin. “They have been extremely accommodating.”
The new office is now open for business and welcomes any visitors.
