Our churches

  St. John
St. John the Evangelist

The original church was built on the present site in 1966. It had to be built to a strict budget and was still part of the Puhoi Parish until 1980 when the Hibiscus Coast Parish was formed. In 2001 the wonderful new church was built and the old church building became the Parish Hall. Click here to locate St John's in Orewa.

St. Francis
St. Francis by the Sea

In 1984 the church of St. Francis by the Sea was built. This was needed to cater for the growing congregation on the Peninsula. Prior to the builing of St Francis parishioners worshipped in the Stanmore Bay Community Hall, or during the summer holidays, Whangaparaoa Hall due to the influx of holiday makers.
