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.

Throughout the Cathedral precinct we are reminded of the changing seasons as the leaves fall in abundance from Bishop Selwyns oak trees.  That changing of the seasons also marks the beginning of Sundays after Trinity, which take us through the rest of this year until the preparation for the Advent journey to begin again.  During this long season of what has been called 'ordinary time', the Scriptures set for our reading in the lectionary over the months ahead remind us of God with us in the everyday reality of our lives and our world.  Histories, Psalms of praise and lament, the prophets, Gospel stories, Epistles, poetry and prose all tell of the creating and redeeming love of God, humanitys encounter with that love, and the invitation to be agents of it for all creation.  During this season then we will reflect on that invitation and challenge.  Those reflections are very timely as we begin preparations for our Consecration year, 2017 the journey to which is entitled 'Advent to Consecration'.  We are a people, and a sacred place, preparing to be consecrated for mission and that call is always before us.

As then, with eager anticipation, we look forward to the Service of Consecration on 28 October 2017, there are a number of milestones to celebrate on the way.  The next one is Sunday 21 August 2016, when, at 3pm, there will be a Service of Dedication of the newly completed Bishop Selwyn Chapel. I hope that you can join us for this wonderful occasion. At the same time as this, in recent weeks we have been building a fairly large mountain of children's pyjamas for children in need in Tamaki Makaurau and it has been a privilege to welcome the new Auckland City Missioner, Chris Farrelly, to the Cathedral as we continue to grow our partnership in ministry with the Mission addressing the desperate needs of so many in our city and our nation. 

We hope that you can join us in worship or, if you are just passing through, to visit the Cathedral. We look forward to welcoming you.

In Christ
Jo Kelly-Moore, Dean
