Community Centre

As a community, we seek the health and wellbeing of the wider community we find ourselves in. A big way we do this is through our Community Centre. It’s been going for 25 years now and has a wide range of activities going on. Hit the buttons below for the location you’re after. 

Who are we?

We’re a Christian faith community who call ourselves The Village, partly in an attempt to try and recover the relational based inter-connected community life that this name implies. We are part of the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand. Our aim is to be a vibrant, open, and multi-faceted community who works for the well-being of our amazing city. In here you will find out a bit more about us.
