Whānau day – Easter 2021

Share this page...

We have decided to hold regular Whanau/Family Gathering Days throughout
the year and invite you to join us. Unitarian spirituality is all about
connection and building community.

Our first Whanau Day was held this Easter Sunday, 4 April 2021 (see slideshow below). The whole congregation were invited to a nearby member’s home and in the park behind their house, to play, share food, music, conversation, and, of course, to hunt for eggs.

Great fun, great weather, great company, a great day was had by all.

Coming up soon we will have an intergenerational service in honour of Earth
Day on 18 April at 10 am. All are welcome. Please join us!

Craftivist Companions - Auckland Unitarian Church, Thursdays 7.30pm - All welcome, beginners to artisans. - Making projects for a better world.

Craftivism is a movement in which people come together to create pieces of handwork which reflect our desire for a better world. These craft pieces can be sent as messages to people in positions of power, or left in strategic places as pieces of “graffiti “. In the process of making, we enjoy the companionship of fellow dreamers.

New members welcome,
no skills required.

For the most up to date information, see our Facebook page.

Craftivism isn’t just Auckland Unitarians, it’s an international movement – see

Auckland Unitarians Celebrate Christmas Eve - 6.00PM Children of all ages Service : 8.00PM Candlelight Service : Everyone Welcome : No Christmas Day Service.

Our Christmas Eve was a little different this year.

At 6.00 pm we held “A Christmas for all ages”. An inter-generational service featuring and focusing on our children. Those who didn’t like to drive at night and who normally forgo the later service found this a fun and joyous alternative.

At 8.00 pm we held our traditional candlelight service followed by a festive Christmas supper. This service was live streamed to the interweb, see below:-
