The South Wairarapa Parish has two main worshipping centres: St John’s Church in Featherston and St Andrew’s Church in Martinborough. We have regular services at both churches and welcome all visitors. Other than our services, there are several ways you can connect with our Church community – from growing and deepening your Christian faith through fellowship groups to house churches and prayer gatherings.
We aim to have fun together; our monthly Community Kai gatherings and connecting over craft and cake are just two ways we do this. Whatever it is you are looking for, we are sure you will find something as you explore our website.
Our children are an important part of our church whanau. We are fortunate that we have a lot of young people and have exciting and engaging activities for them to be part of.
Every Sunday there is a lot for the children to be part of. We have amazing people that facilitate talks and activities in a dedicated space. We are on an inter-generational journey as our kids discover who Jesus is for themselves.
A great space for families. These gatherings happen the first Sunday of each month at St John’s Church from 5pm – 7pm. Bring a friend along to this intergenerational faith space.
