Welcome to St Mary by the Sea
We are a family-friendly Anglican church which tries as far as possible
to involve all ages in our worship. Our Services are sacramental and liturgical
in the Anglican tradition but in an informal way, with the active involvement
of lay people in the leadership of worship. Our aim is a Service that is
not only spiritually uplifting, meaningful and relevant, but also warm
and welcoming to all ages.
We want our Passion for God, Compassion for
People, (our Mission Statement) to become central in all that we say
and do. Our desire is to meet the needs of our community with the love
We are part of the Diocese
of Auckland, Archdeaconry of Hauraki.
