Dean's Message

A Message from the Acting Dean

Kia ora, Haere mai, Welcome,

We are in the final days of the fifty days of the Easter Season; some call this ‘Ascensiontide’. At this time, we continue to celebrate the Risen Christ, and the hope that he brings, and that we can bring to each other. This is also a time when we pray for Christian Unity – mirroring the period of prayer of the earliest followers of Jesus as they awaited the Day of Pentecost.

Do come in and spend time in this magnificent building, join one of the many services (on Sunday or weekdays), listen to our superb choir, sit in silence, pray, meditate, light a candle, make a donation, speak to one of the people from our community,…

Welcome to you, whoever you are – visitor, new person, regular or occasional churchgoer. You are welcome here, in this Anglican Cathedral for everyone, for people of all faiths and none.

Alleluia! Christ is risen!

The Rev'd Bosco Peters, Acting Dean of Christchurch
