Induction of the Rev. Tony Franklin-Ross

Worship Service: 10am Sundays (Holy Communion 1st Sunday of each month)
Our worship is a blend of traditional and contemporary elements, with good strong Methodist singing,
theological reflection on the Scriptures, praying for the community and world in which we live,
and earthing our spirituality for days ahead of us.
We offer an Open Table for sharing in Holy Communion, regardless of faith background.

Taize Vespers @ St Paul's
(3rd Sunday of the month, 7pm, from May to September)

Each year, as a partner to our Summer Series of Jazz Vespers, St Paul's Presbyterian Church (Tennyson Street) are hosting Taize Vespers on the 3rd Sunday of the month, at 7pm. This service is a time of quiet worship through singing, silence and prayer - based on Taize music. As part of our ecumenical relationship through the Napier Inner-City Churches Covenant, we share in this service.

Worship in the style of Taizé is simple – candles to light the darkness, simple, chanted songs with instrumental accompaniment to settle the spirit, silent prayer to refresh the soul. Come in, sit down, on a pew or a chair or a cushion. Sing as much or as little as you like. Let the spirit and the space surround you. The Taizé community is an ecumenical community in the south of France, where people of all ages and all denominations from all over the world gather to eat and pray together and discover a sense of kindness, simplicity and belonging. 

Art Deco Weekend

Art Deco Weekend is a special festival in Napier to celebrate the Art Deco Era, and commemorate the city rebuilt in Art Deco style after the devastating 1931 Hawkes Bay earthquake.

Our 10am worship will be themed to celebrate the era. As with the whole of the weekend, wear your Art Deco outfit to church - an era when there we would wear our "Sunday Best".

In the evening, we have our Jazz Vespers Service, at 7:00pm. This event is part of our monthly summer season of Jazz Vespers where we incorporate jazz music with reflection.
