Taradale: All Saints & St Thomas

All Saints’ is one of the biggest and most active parishes in the region of Hawkes’ Bay.  Hospitality is an important part of our church community with our Mid Winter community lunch being a highlight.  We have a passion for families and young people with regular Messy Church events and two vibrant youth groups meeting weekly are testimony to this. 

Included in the parish is the community at St Thomas’ in Meeanee.  The church building is one of the oldest in New Zealand that is still in use as a place of worship. 

In our worship we recognise the different needs and expectations of a wide variety of people, so our services range from the formal and traditional to the free-flowing and spontaneous.  We encourage our congregation to take a very active part in leading music, prayer, reading, worship and preaching.
