About Us

About us

We are a community based church, supporting a range of activities throughout the week. We love the idea of attending the local church, living life alongside each other in the Island Bay community.

Our main church gathering is at 10am each Sunday, with a more traditional service on Thursday 10.15am. Feel free to join us at these times!

St Hilda’s is located at 311 The Parade, Island Bay. The southern-most church in the North Island of New Zealand, we are a few blocks from Island Bay beach where the Te Araroa Trail ends for the North Island.

As well as the attractive 100 year old traditional church, our facilities include a hall which can be booked for community events, full kitchen facilities and a grass lawn for games and outdoor events.

We operate programmes and activities for children, adults and small groups. Various community groups already use the church for their activities, including a playgroup every Tuesday from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm, Move it Danceworks, Pippins, Brownies and ICONZ (junior Boys Brigade).

Feel free to contact the office about hiring the church or hall for a special event, wedding, funeral or gathering.

Financially we are sustained with donations and hirage. If you can support St Hildas financially, our account number is:
