St Francis Cooperating Parish of Clive and Haumoana

St Francis Co-operating Parish of Clive-Haumoana
Clive-Haumoana is an Anglican-Presbyterian local shared ministry village parish with a small but loyal congregation who alternate services between their attractive modern church at Clive and their rural church hall at seaside Haumoana. Worship leans slightly more to the Presbyterian than Anglican style. There are a few families, but it tends to towards people who consider themselves young at heart.
