Celebrating God's love

Welcoming all

Worshipping God

Nourishing community

Empowering action

Warm greetings and welcome to Holy Trinity Cathedral, the spiritual centre and focus for the Anglican Diocese of Auckland and a significant place of gathering for the people of Auckland, the wider region and Aotearoa New Zealand.  As a place of worship, gathering, the arts and learning, we are a community of people who are committed to celebrating the love of God for all.  Out of that love, we are committed to offering a warm welcome, to being creative in worship, to nourishing community, both local and beyond, and to encouraging each other in Christian service in our daily life and work.

August 21st 2016 was an historic day in the life of our Cathedral as the Bishop Selwyn Chapel was dedicated and opened by Bishop Ross Bay, Bishop of Auckland.  A full Cathedral resounded with thanksgiving as we celebrated this wonderful moment, which marks the completion of our Cathedral and begins our journey to consecration.  The Bishop Selwyn Chapel is now in the full swing of ministry and is being well received by all who gather there.  It was a privilege for me to take the first retreat there for the Mothers' Union and AAW.  On the Cathedral website you can see progress with the Cathedral Organ.  Nicholsons will be with us until the end of October, after which their site will be packed up as they return to Malvern to complete construction of the north organ (Harbour side of the Cathedral).  They will return to install this in mid-January to April 2017.  At the same time, St Mary's Organ has been removed and is now in Brisbane for restoration.  Simon Pierce and his team will return to the Cathedral from Brisbane in November to December this year and March to April 2017 for the re-installation.  We look forward to opening recitals on both the Cathedral and St Mary's Organs in 2017.

Now that our Cathedral is complete, our preparations for Consecration are well underway.  This Advent a year-long programme will begin that will culminate on 28 October 2017 with the Service of Consecration.   During this spring the Consecration year programme will be published, which will involve education, music, mission, worship, and much celebration.  We hope that you will join us on the journey.

We hope that you can join us in worship, or for a visit, and please make sure that you get to pause in the new Bishop Selwyn Chapel.  It is a blessing.

In Christ
Jo Kelly-Moore, Dean
