Being Anglican

Ko hei mihinare

Drawn from the Ancient Latin title Ecclesia Anglicana which means the Church of the English, the Anglican Community has grown into a diverse and beautiful family of dioceses and churches across the globe united by our shared faith and history.


The Anglican Communion

As a diocese we are part of the Anglican Church of the province of Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia and we are a part of the global Anglican Communion. This communion comprises some 70 million faithful Christians across nearly every nation of the world.

The Anglican Communion is bound by both its shared faith, expressed in the historic creeds and in scripture, and also by a shared history and connection with the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Church of England.
