COVID-19 Update: All Church Gatherings Suspended Immediately
We live in interesting times. Effect immediately, all Methodist services, including ours at Durham Street, have been suspended. This is not only in consideration of the risks of those attending, but also to reduce as much as possible any further spread of the virus to others in the community. We do this as demonstration of our care for others, not just out of need to protect ourselves. Thank you for your understanding.
In its place we are offering Virtual Sundays: Church-not-as-usual. You can also keep in touch via our Facebook page and here on our website, for example our Sunday Reflections are on-line, and our Blog: Did You Hear The One About. You can also subscribe to our AngelMail, which we are sending out during the pandemic, by submitting your name & email in the Stay in Touch form right at the bottom of this page.

if you have any pastoral concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our minister, Philo, on 021 521 118 or at, and here is a special message from Philo.

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.
