Parish of Wairoa

St Pauls Church - Wairoa

Wairoa, while small in number now, has a feel of close family.  Theology tends to be Evangelical, with emphaisis on a personal relationship with God, Biblical teaching and preaching.

We no longer have manned office hours but there is an answering service on the Church office phone - 06 838 5053.
For urgent calls please contact Rev'd Richard and Mrs Joy Senior (Spiritual Leader) on 06 838 7286 or 027 366 1005.
