The church has always had a presence in our community and plays a vibrant role in the city’s culture. We hope that our presence strengthens the ministry of the churches around us as we seek to call all people to the gospel.

Nau mai, haere mai, welcome to the website of The Taranaki Cathedral Church of St Mary. We are a warm, friendly and loving church community. A people and a place of prayer, peace and reconciliation.
