About us

Amberley parish warmly welcomes you

Joy church window

Holy Innocents’ Church in Amberley and St Paul’s Church in Leithfield belong in the Anglican Parish of Amberley. Our people are drawn from nearby beach settlements and rural areas as well as Amberley township and Leithfield village.

It’s our privilege to share in the lives of individuals, couples, and families. We offer friendship and a supportive and caring community as well as the sacraments of the church to all who need them. We look forward to meeting visitors or newcomers to our community.

Our Vicar, Reverend Doctor Meg Harvey (“Rev Meg”), joined us in August 2022 and lives in Amberley. Church services are held every Sunday (see Services menu above for an up to date schedule) — currently only at Holy Innocents Church, in Amberley.

Contact us

To contact the parish initially about weddings, baptisms, funerals, and other matters such as the hire of the parish hall (Amberley), contact the Parish Administrator Mrs Ann Loffhagen, phone (03) 314-8082. To discuss these and any other matters with our Vicar, phone Rev. Meg on 027-406-5392 or email revmegharvey@gmail.com

One thought on “About us

  1. Thank you for such a brilliantly organised and very useful website. I’m part of a smallish Baptist church in Auckland (called Cityside) and one of a team who curate services. We already use Joy C and Leunig prayers from time to time, but you have provided many other rich resources too – including those thoughtful, well-structured and relevant sermons! With huge appreciation…. Helen Dallaston xxx
