Welcome to All Saints’
All Saints’ is the parish of the northern part of the city of Dunedin, New Zealand. The parish includes North Dunedin, Ravensbourne and Leith Valley. The parish community is lively, inclusive, multi-generational and Anglo-Catholic. Built in 1865, All Saints’ is the oldest church still used as a place of worship in the city. The church backs onto Selwyn College, with which the parish has a long and close relationship. All Saints’ is the closest church to the campuses of the University of Otago and the Otago Polytechnic.
Sunday masses are at 8am and 10.30am. The 8am mass uses the 1662 BCP liturgy and is said.
The 10.30 mass uses the 1989 NZPB liturgy and music is led by a choir of Selwyn College students and the organ. Sunday School for children of all ages is offered during this service. This mass is followed by lunch. On the first Sunday of the month at 10.30 we have Family Mass.
At 9pm we have a contemplative service with Taize music; this congregation is mostly students.
From Monday to Friday Morning Prayer is said in the church at 8am, 8.30 on Saturday.
Everyday Evening Prayer is said at 5.30 except Sunday and Wednesday and Meditation on Friday at 5.30pm.
On Wednesdays from 9.30am until 11am we have our baby and toddler group in the front hall. At 5.30 there is a mass (2nd Wednesday in French, 3rd Wednesday with prayers for healing and anointing with oil, 4th Wednesday in German).
The parish branch of the Association of Anglican Women meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 11.30.
Our beautiful church is open all day, every day, as a place for prayer and quiet reflection.

- The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is offered in the parish for chidlren aged 3-12. The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd gives children the opportunity to grow in love and knowledge of God. It is rooted in the Bilble, the liturgy of the church and the educational principles of Maria Montessori. Children gather in the 'atrium' (the Max Smith Room), which contains materials they use to help them absorb the essential proclamations of the Christian faith. Children work with the catechist to wonder, to explore and to find answers for themselves. To read more about the Catechesis visit: www.cgsusa.org. Sessions are on Tuesday at 3.45pm. If you are interested to know more, or want to enrol your child, please contact the Vicar.
