Greetings in Christ!

We are glad to welcome you to the website of St. Peter's Jacobite Syrian Orthodox Christian Church, Auckland, New Zealand. We have submitted ourselves in the hands of God Almighty to use us as He wills, for the glorification of His name. We approach these plans with openness, humility and hope. Come with us to share the joy of being used by God especially while being in Diaspora.

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead " - 1 Peter 1:3

Peace Be With You

 

A Word About Us

Fellowship. Friendship. Worship.

The St. Peter’s Syrian Orthodox Church was established in New Zealand in September 2002 by the immigrant families and individuals of Syrian Christian tradition from Kerala. This helped us to worship in Malayalam language and Jacobite tradition, to grow in Christian fellowship and friendship.

 

Our Holy Mass is conducted in Malayalam every Sunday. If you know someone who shares the tradition, please refer them to this church. If you are in Auckland, come with us to share the joy of being used by God especially while being in Diaspora.

 

There are families from various parts of Kerala, and a number of them came from various parts of Kerala. You will most probably find a person from your region.

 

Fellowship

We believe intentional relationships are key to sustained spiritual growth. That's why small groups are such an important part of our mission -fellowship & friendship.

Our Community Connect Groups, allow us to connect, support, and grow as we learn to do life together in New Zealand. We consider local community care as an important aspect of our church life.

 

In a church group, people study God's word together and discuss the issues and challenges of life. It's also where they pray, care for one another, and are missed if they don't show up. We have St. Mary's Women's League, Sunday School, Youth Association to meet this goal.

Our Mission

St Peter's has the honor of connecting people to God, Jesus Christ, and to one another in a loving and caring setting. It is our mission to empower our community to become disciples of God by learning the gospels and practicing his word.


The word “church” originates from the word “gathering” or “to gather”. This is why we so strongly cling to the notion that the church is not a building or a structure, but rather, the church is actually the believers themselves. We aim to maintain and foster a comfortable environment for our congregation to gather, build relationships, demonstrate love and share their knowledge. We believe that the Lord Almighty rewards those who take time out of each day to show their gratitude through prayer and spirituality.
