In addition to our existing parish outreach ministries we are partners with the groups shown below. We look forward to building and continuing our relationships with these groups, offering support and help.
We will provide details of opportunities and progress made with these partnerships on a regular basis.
ANGLICAN TRUST FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN
The Anglican Trust for Women and Children is one of Auckland’s oldest charities – with its origins stretching back more than 150 years. In 1858 the Anglican Church set up an orphan’s home at a cottage in Parnell to help some of the city’s many neglected children. The home, which later moved to a much larger building in Parnell, heralded the beginning of the charitable work of what would become the Anglican Trust for Women and Children.
From its small but determined start, ATWC has evolved into a major Auckland charity which provides critical care to mothers, children and families throughout Auckland to help them build healthy, happy lives.
AUCKLAND CITY MISSION
The Auckland City Mission was established in 1920 by Reverend Jasper Calder. Under Reverend Calder’s leadership, the Mission quickly grew to become one of Auckland’s most influential social service providers – and today, it still is. The services offered have developed over time to reflect social changes, but the Mission’s purpose remains to help people in desperate need. No two clients’ stories are the same and the people who come to the Mission for help come for many different reasons; some are isolated elderly, others are rough sleepers or people living in cars and inappropriate housing. Others are battling addictions, living with mental health issues, or struggling to feed their families over a period of unexpected crisis.
FEED MY LAMBS – ST SAVIOURS KAITAIA – RONGOPAI HOUSE COMMUNITY TRUST

ST MARYS COOPERATING PARISH IN GLEN INNES
One of our neighbours, St Mary’s in Glen Innes is a co operating parish between Methodists and Anglicans. At the end of last year Rev’ds Joel and Hinemoa Carpenter were commissioned for ministry at St Mary’s.
‘The Diocese has been able to combine the resources of the parish, the Diocese and the Anglican Trust For Women and Children to enable a stipend to be made available and also housing in the area so Rev’ds Joel and Hine can live and minister among the people of Glen Innes’
