Christmas Services for 2022

We have three services to celebrate Christmas this year, each with its own flavour:

Sunday 18 December at 10:00 am: Lessons and Carols. In this service, we combine readings from scripture with prose and poetry from other writers past and contemporary, presented by a range of readers from the Anglican and Presbyterian Churches and the wider community. We sing carols both traditional and less well-known, including some carols from Aotearoa. Refreshments follow.

Saturday 24 December at 4:30 pm: Christmas Eve service. This will be a family-friendly time to sing carols, celebrate the Christmas story and afterwards enjoy a cup of tea (or mulled wine!) and a mince pie.

Sunday 25 Sunday at 9:30 am: Christmas Day service. A simple service to welcome Christmas Day and remember the birth of Jesus.

Everyone is welcome to join us for any or all of these services.

Our peaceful church is a quiet place of refuge set among the lush bush found in Titirangi.

Inside you will find an open worship and meeting space with a beautifully designed gold cross (by Stephen Bambury) above the altar.

Everyone is welcome – visitors often comment on the warmth of the welcome they receive.

Prayer of St Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is discord, unity;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is error, truth;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is sadness, joy;
Where there is darkness, light.

A Local Shared Ministry Unit

St Francis is a welcoming church in the heart of the bush, in the peaceful and nurturing environment of the Waitakeres.

Often at a morning service in the spring or summer you may see the tuis through the windows above the simple sanctuary with its beautifully designed cross and its finely handcrafted banners.
