Welcome to the Anglican parish of Sumner/Redcliffs

 Our community is located in Christchurch, NZ. Our members come from a diversity of backgrounds and we have a variety of service styles. Please browse this site to find out more. Above all we are united in a common loyalty to the Lord Jesus and in a desire to see Him honoured and made known.

We have a new Vicar! We are delighted to announce that Rev Thomas Brauer has accepted the position of Vicar of Sumner-Redcliffs.  Thomas is originally from Edmonton, Canada, where he was ordained, but he is currently working in an executive role for the Diocese of St Andrews, Dunkeld and Dunblane in Scotland. 

All going to plan he will take up his position with us on 1 February 2017 and will be accompanied by his wife, Cheryl, and their two young children.
