Welcome to Waiapu

Stunning vistas, picturesque landscapes, art deco buildings, rolling surf beaches, and above all vibrant, passionate people make up our diocese in the North Island of Aotearoa  New Zealand.

We are known within our Church as a diocese committed to youth, social services, unity in diversity and, as our Mission Statement says, ‘Knowing Jesus and making Jesus known’.
