Dec 5th In-Person Worship Cancelled

In-person services scheduled for Sunday Decemeber 5th (8am, 10am and 5pm ALT_Mary) are CANCELLED. In the past 24 hours positive COVID-19 cases have been identified in areas where Taranaki Cathedral kamahi live. As this is a developing situation, with contact tracing still underway to identify locations of interest, we believe it is prudent to cancel this weekend's in-person services.

CANCELLED! In-Person Sunday Service for 14 November

ALL In Person Services Suspended (until 1-meter or less distancing required) 

There will be no services offered at Taranaki Cathedral until we are at an Alert Level which requires 1-metre (or less) physical distancing. While the Government rules for Level 2-Delta do allow for in-person gatherings of up to 50 people, Government Guidelines and our Diocesan regulations stipulate that we need to ensure there is a 2-meter physical distance between anyone not in the same bubble. This requirement (and our natural inclination to come together to chat, offer comfort etc) would make... read more

Level 2-Delta at Taranaki Cathedral

Government and Diocesan advice and rules means that (like everyone) we will be operating differently at Level 2-Delta than we did during previous Level 2 periods. As always, your physical, mental and spiritual heath remains our top priority. No one should feel there is an expectation to attend in-person services – we encourage everyone to consider our on-line offerings as an alternative in the short term. Because of different vaccine statuses, age, health and personal circumstances, we all have different comfort... read more
