Grounded in Prayer – we are Equipped for Discipleship – and Connected to Community

Welcome to our Diocesan website.  You’ll find lots to see here, and we hope you enjoy your time with us, whether you are browsing for information and resources, looking at photographs of recent events, or accessing educational and liturgical tools!  Welcome, welcome, thrice welcome!  A lot of the information contained here are the ‘nuts and bolts’ of our life together; information for clergy, lay ministers and all those many other people who play such a vital part in the day-to-day running of our churches and ministry units. 

There is also information here on our Anglican schools, and chaplaincy-sector ministries, and links to our Cathedrals in Hamilton and New Plymouth; and information that relates to children, families and young people.  There are also useful sections on important matters relating to key life events, to prayer and to worship.  There is also introductory material to the Christian faith.  Whatever you are looking for, we hope that you will also get a feel of the rich and varied life of our unique Diocese. We are indeed unique, in having two co-Diocesan Bishops:  Bishop Philip is the Bishop of Taranaki and Archbishop of the New Zealand Dioceses; Bishop Helen-Ann is the Bishop of Waikato.  If you want to know more, get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!  We are a Diocese in Mission for the world because God loves God’s creation and invites us to love it too.
