What's Happening

Here are some of the things going on in the Parish on a regular basis.

Warkworth Anglican Youth

Wayfarers is our youth group for intermediate and high school age kids in and around the Parish. We meet once a month on the first Sunday from 4.30pm-6pm for some games, discussion and pizza (probably quite a lot of pizza).

Our next gathering will be on Sunday 5 September at 4.30pm in the Parish Hall (43 Percy Street, Warkworth).

Rhythm 'n' Riggle is back for 2021!

Rhythm ‘n’ ‘Riggle (R&R) is an interactive session with lots of music and movement for pre-schoolers and parents/caregivers. Come along for some fun and morning tea too!

We have two locations running for Term 1:

  • Warkworth: Thursdays 10:00 – 11:30 at Anglican Church Hall, 43 Percy Street, Warkworth

  • Snells Beach: Fridays 10:00 – 11:30 at Snells Beach Community Church, 325 Mahurangi East Road (opposite the Fire Station).

R&R runs during school terms and only when COVID Alert Level is no higher than 1.

Please note that all children must be supervised by their Caregiver and a gold coin donation is requested.

Catherine Kennedy is our Coordinator who is also supported by volunteers. For more info, call (09) 425 8054 or email us at children@warkworthanglican.nz

Warkworth Christian Foodlink

Our parish supports the Warkworth Christian Foodlink, operated from the Mahurangi Presbyterian Church (5 Pulham Road, Warkworth Ph 09 425 8861), which provides food parcels to individuals and families in our area that may be struggling to put the basic essentials on the table.

Donations of non-perishable goods can be left at our Church office (Christ Church, 43 Percy St, Warkworth) when open or at the St Leonard's Church OpShop (24 Matakana Valley Rd) 24x7.

Our parish offers a ministry for those suffering from grief and loss. Seasons is a non-religious peer-support programme for people who have experienced a major loss in their lives.

For children, parents and teens, groups are run both in schools; they are nine weeks in length and are free. For adults, there is a six-week course run at regular intervals.

Life Threatening Illness is an additional programme offered for those young people living with a sick parent or sibling. There is no charge for this programme and is offered on an ad hoc basis, in response to need.

Please call Heather Free on 021 0813 3586 or seasons@warkworthanglican.nz
