Welcome to Motueka Uniting Parish

St Andrews Methodist/Presbyterian Church
64 High St, Motueka, opposite Inglis Street.

In July 2012, the parish received a directive from the Presbyterian Property Trustees instructing the parish that because of the building's poor seismic strength rating, it had to remain closed until remedial action to make the building safe had been completed. (See the full news story here)

As of September 1st, 2015 the EQ strengthening work was complete and we have returned to having our worship services in the church, after three years of services in the hall. In October we held a special service to celebrate the successful completion of the renovations to our spiritual home. The work was done in keeping with the historical status of the building and with great sympathy to the original design of our forefathers and and we are very pleased with it
