Rakaia, Methven, Mayfield, Staveley

Next Worship Services


A geographically widespread parish in Rural Mid Canterbury. Our worship centres are based in Rakaia, Methven and Mayfield. The Mayfield district also has smaller worship centres at Carew, Staveley and Mt Somers. We aim to grow and active, living body of Christ in the Mt Hutt Riding or Rural Mid Canterbury. We will be a forward-focusing church which nurtures its young and supports the middle-aged and elderly. Our purpose is to bring together our scattered, diverse rural communities under a strengthened leadership model which allows each existing congregation to retain its unique presence in its local community. We will build a healthy, vibrant Presbyterian Parish, accessible to all and able to make a significant and distinctive contribution to the life of the region.
