Aldersgate
Your Gathering

Place. Puari Huinga
A safe place for all people - and a stunning modern venue for your event

A unique, modern space for you in the heart of Christchurch

Aldersgate Centre is an initiative of the Durham Street Methodist Church. We want to provide a warm and welcoming gathering place with soul – for community or business meetings and family events – open to people of all faiths or none.

This exciting new community centre is open to all, and we want to especially offer a place of refuge and support for those most at risk of being marginalized or left out. Aldersgate is the home of the Durham Street Methodists and other community activities. It also provides a base for others working locally and internationally for social justice, including Christchurch Methodist Mission (Child & Family Social Services) and Christian World Service.

Check out where the name Aldersgate comes from, and why we call it Your Gathering Place – Puari Huinga.
