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

Aldersgate Centre is an initiative of the Durham Street Methodist Church. We are committed to the post-quake Christchurch, and want to do our bit to help build a fairer, more inclusive city.

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 our StreeTs ministry 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.

We also 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.
