Welcome to St Mary by the Sea

We are a family-friendly Anglican church which tries as far as possible to involve all ages in our worship. Our Services are sacramental and liturgical in the Anglican tradition but in an informal way, with the active involvement of lay people in the leadership of worship. Our aim is a Service that is not only spiritually uplifting, meaningful and relevant, but also warm and welcoming to all ages.

We want our Passion for God, Compassion for People, (our Mission Statement) to become central in all that we say and do. Our desire is to meet the needs of our community with the love of Jesus.

We are part of the Diocese of Auckland, Archdeaconry of Hauraki.
