A very warm welcome to Hororata Parish,

Whether you are visiting,  just moved in or a 5th generation local, our parish community is open.

Our parish offers spiritual comfort and compassion to whoever asks or is in need. An integral part of our ministry is beyond the church walls, so our Rev. Jenni spends much of her time out in the wider community.  Please feel free to give Rev. Jenni a call; she will always make time for you.

Community activities, parish updates, and local get-togethers are a regular occurrence; stay up-to-date on our Facebook page.

ABOUT HORORATA PARISH

Faith. Kindness. Community. Respect. These are the cornerstones behind Hororata Parish.  Our first wooden church built in 1875 established on the ideals of giving everyone a chance to gather as a community, learn, grow, and define their own religious identity through sharing. Today our community reflects the diverse use of the land and those who look after it. Some are 6th generation descendants of the earlier settlers and others are recent arrivals involved in local farming activities, or commuting to work in Christchurch or neighbouring towns.

Hororata in effect means the place of landslip (“
horo”) by the rata (a native tree).

GET TO KNOW OUR VICAR

The role of a vicar in a small community is immensely important.  Jenni has been ministering to the spiritual well-being of our parish for the last 10 years.  Along with being our Fire Chief, much of her time is spent in service to local families.  Our vicar is also part of the team of volunteers that host Hororata Highland Games, Night Glow and the local family favourite, the Hororata Parish Spring Fair. 
Please give Jenni a call if you need help and/or assistance.
