Welcome to the Whanganui Anglican Parish. We have many beautiful churches throughout Whanganui, varying in shapes and sizes. Our churches are precious spaces we are excited to share with you.

The Details:

Weddings must be conducted by an approved Christian Minister.

All couples who get married in an Anglican Church within our Parish are required to participate in marriage preparations sessions. If one of our local Clergy are presiding over your wedding they will organise this with you. If you are being married by a Minister outside our Parish these sessions will take place with them.

It is a requirement that either the Bride or Groom has been, or intends to be baptised in order to marry in one of our churches.
