Welcome to St James Anglican Church Kerikeri

Priest-in-Charge: Rev. Stan Pilbrow

Kerikeri is one of the earliest places where the gospel was shared in Aotearoa New Zealand – and 200 years later, the Kerikeri Inlet is still home to a happy and welcoming church community. You’re always welcome to visit our tranquil spot, overlooking the Inlet and the Stone Store.

We offer regular Sunday services, as well as a variety of groups and social occasions. We have a team of paid and voluntary clergy and laypeople who share in the ministry of our church community.

Our mission statement is “To present a Christian message that is authentic and relevant to our families, our community and the world.” – all are welcome at St James.

Upcoming events at St James Anglican Church

9 October 2022        St Francis of Assisi service at 9:00 am

St Francis of Assisi was a Catholic Friar born in 1181 or 1182 in Assisi, Italy.  He founded the Franciscan Order and is the patron saint of animals, merchants and ecology.  He preached that animals were as much God’s creatures as were people and as such should be protected.  We usually celebrate the life of St Francis on the 4 October. This year however, we will celebrate it on 9 October and will share the day with the children, inviting them to bring their pets and stuffed toys to be blessed in the name of St Francis!

15 October 2022        60s party!

Get your glad rags on! On Saturday 15 October from 6:00 pm till late, we will be holding a fund-raiser celebration of the 60s in our hall.
