Mainly Music is a weekly session for pre-schoolers and their parents or caregivers, involving children and adults in singing, moving to music and playing percussion instruments. Monday mornings: 10am-11.30 at Trinity Church Hall, Akaroa. An experienced leader takes the children through a fun-filled half-hour of music, followed by a time for everyone to have a snack, children to play freely and adults to chat together. Mainly Music has proved to be really beneficial for children and adults in many churches throughout New Zealand, and has been run in Akaroa for 20 years. Monday mornings: 10am-11.30. Contact Sue Church on 304 7114 or email

Garden Service

On Sunday February 13th – 11 am we will be holding a Garden Service at Ken and Fiona Paulin’s, 281 Beach Road, to be followed by a shared picnic lunch. Please bring a chair, a drink of your choice and some finger food which can be shared. (This was postponed from 23rd January)

We would love to encourage members of our Bays congregations to join us for this occasion, which will be a farewell  to Ken and Fiona’s garden prior to their move to Rue Balguerie.

There will be someone at the bottom of the Paulins’ drive, showing you where to park.

In the event of wet weather, the service and shared lunch will take place at Trinity, at the same time of 11 am.

Community lunches


In view of the uncertainty caused by the spread of the Delta virus, we have regretfully decided to cancel the annual Community Christmas lunch which was to have been held at Trinity Church Hall on Friday 26 November. In past years, many members of our local community have enjoyed attending these Christmas lunches, which come complete with ham and other Christmas goodies, as well as singing Christmas carols.

We sincerely hope that the Community Lunches will be able to resume again next year once the situation has settled down, as they have always been a popular community event.

The Marriage Course

Are you married or in a permanent relationship? Would you like to enrich your relationship? to have a weekly ‘date night’ with your partner, a great meal and a chance to have some good confidential talk together each week for seven weeks? 

Over seven weeks the Marriage Course provides talks on relationship matters, and opportunities for each couple to talk together privately after each talk. It is a confidential process, with no-one else involved as couples talk together. Each evening is organised as a “date night”, with an delicious dinner, soft lights, and good music. It is not for those who have serious relationship problems.

This year’s courses have finished, but there will be others next year. To find out more, please contact the Vicar on 03 304 7051

Home Groups

Would you like to meet with a small group of others who want to explore what it means to be a follower of Jesus? In a small group we can all experience encouragement on our Christian journey, the opportunity to learn from God’s Word and from each other, and lots of laughter along the way. Currently there are two home groups which meet fortnightly, one in the daytime and one in the evening. The programme consists of a social time over food and drink, discussion of a Bible passage or Christian topic of interest, and prayer. To find out more, please contact Simon Tipping 03 304 8920
