Mornington Methodist Church

Who Are We?

We are a community of Christians, mainly from the Methodist tradition, who enjoy meeting together and worshipping God. We are an inclusive, reconciling congregation that is non-judgmental, and that is accepting of all people irrespective of age, gender, race or sexuality. About 65 of our number, around one quarter of whom are children or youth, meet on Sunday mornings for worship. We strive for spiritual growth through discussion and reflection on an open theology. We enjoy contemporary artwork in our modern church and joining together in contemporary music much of which has been composed by our organist and choir master Colin Gibson. We value the participation of children in worship and seek ways to serve our community. We enjoy having fun together!

What Do We Do?

We worship in the church each Sunday 9.30-10.30 am. The worship is enriched by the choir and the reporting back of the Sunday School and Y@M members.

There are two Women's Fellowship groups. One meets on the evening of the third Monday of each month. The other meets in the afternoon of the last Wednesday.

The Explorers' Group meets on the last Sunday of each month to discuss theology from a liberal or "progressive" perspective. We care for a stretch of the Kaikorai stream under the auspices of the Otago Regional Council Streamscape project. We participate in the Dunedin Methodist Parish Continuing Education Programme.

Our premises are used by the Mornington Toy and Games Library, the Ren-Shu-Den Judo Club, the Mornington Plunket Mothers' Group and the Easy-as-you-go exercise class. The organ and piano are enjoyed by the Dunedin Music Society and Dunedin music teachers.


Sunday worship, Sunday School and Youth group (Y@M) 9.30am every Sunday.
