As of Saturday 21 March 2020, there was a step-change in the New Zealand way of life as a result of our government’s response to the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
All Methodist and Wellington Anglican Diocese church services are suspended. The remaining Dioceses and the Presbyterian Church is giving the same advice from now on.

We must all be shocked and heart-broken at the loss of life and social disruption that is occurring around the world. We know that there will be further changes in policy for New Zealanders as the alert level increases.
Church communities and other religious societies have networks for offering practical help within and beyond their membership. Our faith is based on an understanding of togetherness and unity that will be needed in the months ahead.
UCANZ committees will use Zoom for all meetings from this week. UCANZ staff, Adrian and Margaret, will be working from home for the foreseeable future. The current landline may be replaced, but meanwhile,
