Otago Peninsula Anglican Parish

St Michael's Andersons Bay, St Nicholas Waverley, St Aidan's Macandrew Bay.

We represent the 3 Anglican congregations on the Otago Peninsula. We meet together regularly for: worship, prayer, morning tea, mission, ecumenical fellowship with our Roman Catholic, Presbyterian, Baptist and Methodist friends. We welcome anyone who walks in through any of our doors. Come and say hello!

Happy St Aidan's Day! Thanks to everyone who helped make our service happen this morning. And if you want to know how to make a labyrinth using some sand, a stone or a bucket of stones, or pretty much any material that comes to hand- just ask Micah!

Otago Peninsula Anglican Parish

Hurray for St Aidan! We're celebrating St Aidan's day this Sunday in Macandrew Bay school at 10am. Come and join us to hear stories about this amazing man as we worship God together, followed by a delicious morning tea. Everyone is very welcome.

[03/27/18]   We're holding a Retreat for Holy Week on Wednesday 10-12noon at St Michael's church, Elliot Street. Watch and pray, come and share a poem, a reading; write something, or walk the path of days from Palm Sunday through to Good Friday. The retreat ends with a Communion service, followed by soup and rolls. Everyone welcome.

[03/16/18]   Joint parish Eucharist this Sunday: 10am at St Nicholas, Waverley, followed by our AGM. Please come along and help us plan for the year ahead.

[02/17/18]   A HUGE BIG THANK YOU to everyone who supported the quiz on Friday night! You all helped to raise $360 for the mission fund and the emergency response to the Tongan cyclone relief effort. We are so grateful.

[01/30/18]   Welcome back friends! Thanks to everyone who was able to support our bed/wheelchair pushing last Sunday at Dunedin Hospital Chapel. It was lovely to see so many parishioners there. The patients REALLY appreciated being able to attend the service, and the way in which they were be-friended by the volunteers during the morning. I know we all appreciated Vivienne's message, and the music too.
This coming Sunday we will be worshipping together (10am at St Michael's) as a parish. We hope to see many of you there. But before that, we have our Community Storytelling night on Friday, up at St Nicholas in the hall. Choose an object from home - anything you can carry easily, and come and tell us about it - who gave it to you/how you came by it, why it is special to you or your family. We'll have a shared meal together, and look forward to hearing the stories. See you soon!

[01/23/18]   Hi everyone, our first parish service of the year is being held this Sunday...out of the parish! It's our turn to enable Dunedin Hospital patients to attend the hospital Chapel service this Sunday, so we'll be meeting at 9.30am for bed/chair pushing before the Eucharist in the chapel (taken by Jo) at 10.30am. Please do join us if you are able. Everyone welcome.

[12/31/17]   Worship services in the parish 7th January: St Michael's & St Nicholas joint service at St Philip's Presbyterian church, Belford Street, Waverley. Jo Fielding is taking the Communion service, which starts at 10am. Everyone is welcome.

[12/31/17]   Happy New Year to you all. It was lovely to see so many of the extended parish family and friends gathered together to celebrate New Year's Eve and Jo's 50th birthday. Sincere thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make it such a happy occasion.

[12/02/17]   Today the joint parish service is at St Nicholas Waverley (corner of Dunrobin Street and Larnach Road). Patronal festival of St Nicholas and the 60th anniversary of this congregation. Morning tea at 9.30am. Festal Eucharist at 10.30.


Bells to mark albatross’s return

Did you hear church bells today? We rang the bells at St Michael's in Elliot Street together with all the other church bells in the city, to celebrate this happy event! https://www.odt.co.nz/news/dunedin/bells-mark-albatross%E2%80%99s-return

odt.co.nz Clocktowers, church bells, school bells and even mobile phones will ring across Dunedin today, to celebrate the arrival of the first royal...

[08/07/17]   We are so grateful to Vivienne for continuing as our locum priest while Jo is supporting the University Chaplaincy this month.

[07/27/17]   We are so grateful to the Rev Vivienne Galletly for looking after the Parish so ably in Jo's absence. Thank you from all of us, Vivienne :)

[07/27/17]   The weather is terrible but we're glad this didn't discourage Jo from returning home to Dunedin! Stay warm, keep dry and keep in touch with each other.

Otago Peninsula Trust

We had a great day earlier this year with A Rocha and STOP friends on the Peninsula, weed-clearing near Harbour Cone. It's wonderful to see so many people getting involved in taking care of this beautiful place.

Congratulations Otago Peninsula Biodiversity Group 11,000 possums!

Great story in Stuff

[05/13/17]   Facebook is great, but we need a website also. Any suggestions for user-friendly platforms?
In other news, we welcome the Revd Vivienne Galletly who is looking after the parish while Jo is overseas.
Sunday morning services and playgroup continue as usual.

[04/18/17]   Happy Easter everyone. Jo Fielding is away overseas until later in July, but the Rev. Vivienne Galletly will be looking after the parish in Jo's absence.

[03/18/17]   Huge big enormous thanks to everyone who made our FUNdraising quiz such a success! You helped us raise over $500 towards the Maniava rebuild in Fiji.


Hundreds turn out for Treaty of Waitangi Festival

It was lovely to see so many people being welcomed onto the marae at Otakou on Waitangi Day this week. There's a great video that shows some of the events of the day here, thanks to the Otago Daily Times. https://www.odt.co.nz/news/dunedin/hundreds-turn-out-treaty-waitangi-festival

odt.co.nz Hundreds of people have converged on Otakou marae for Ngai Tahu's Treaty of Waitangi Festival today.

[02/01/17]   And in other news, Waverley Community Playgroup starts again this week for the new year. All babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers and their whanau are welcome to share toys, good (fairtrade) coffee & tea and a catch-up each Thursday morning 10-11.30am up at St Nicholas hall, Dunrobin Street, Waverley. See you there :)

[02/01/17]   We are very pleased to confirm that the Dunedin congregation of the Free Wesleyan Church of Tonga has found a new home with us, at St Michael & All Angels, Elliot Street, on Sunday afternoons. New opportunities to get to know new friends and share hospitality together is a great thing. Welcome, friends!

[01/25/17]   We're on the look out for angels in disguise this weekend! Are you one of them? Dunedin Hospital Chapel has a service each Sunday morning at 10am. However, in order for patients to be able to attend, we need some kind lovely people to turn up at 9.30am to help bring patients down from the wards. If you are free this Sunday morning and could push a wheelchair, or help push a bed, please let me know! Thank you very very much.

[01/15/17]   Wishing all our friends a very happy 2017.

[12/21/16]   Happy Christmas to you all! Our Christmas services:
Christmas Eve 4pm Carols round the Crib at St Nicholas
then 10.30pm for mince pies and mulled wine at St Michael's, followed by Christmas Communion service at 11pm.
Christmas Day: 9am Christmas croissants followed by Family Communion Service (St Aidan's in Macandrew Bay School).
9.30 Family Service with Eucharist at St Nicholas, Waverley

[11/06/16]   Hi everyone, please be aware that with Macandrew Bay School having their Fair on Sunday 13th November, the St Aidan's congregation will be meeting at Celia's house instead next week. Same time (10am) - all welcome. Let's hope the weather is sunny and dry for the Fair (so we can all go and support the school after our service!).

[07/15/16]   This Sunday, we are looking forward to welcoming Bishop Kelvin back home to his local parish church, at St Michael & All Angels. The excuse this time? We are celebrating Eileen's decades of service to the Church - local and Diocesan, on Vestry, AAW and many other roles. Quiet unsung heroine, getting on with the job in hand. Join us for worship at 10am, and/or for Morning tea afterwards. Everyone welcome.

[06/29/16]   Playgroup still going strong and we are looking forward to welcoming some familiar faces tomorrow - and some new ones coming for the first time. We will have some new songs too, for a change (because I beat the computer...)

[06/29/16]   ProTip: Adding morning tea/coffee to the midweek communion (after the service in the next door lounge, with the heating on and everything) really helps increase numbers. Who knew?

[06/12/16]   A big thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of our quiz night! Great fun had by everyone, and over $400 raised for Manaiva rebuild. Can't wait for next time!
