The Community of St Luke, Remuera

StLukesThe Community of Saint Luke seeks to be a nurturing community where each is committed to the spiritual and personal well-being of all and where all who come are accepted and respected.



St Lukes Presbyterian parish was formed in 1875 to serve Remuera, Epsom and Newmarket.  The present church was built in 1931-32, using the plans of a church built in 1904 in the Scottish village of Twechar, near Glasgow.

In an open letter to the moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa New Zealand, St Lukes has reaffirmed that they will continue to welcome all people into the community, including all who are called into leadership, all who wish to be baptised, and all who wish to be married. Information about weddings at St Lukes can be found on their website.

Although the church and surrounding churchyard is now owned by the Wainuimata Pioneer Church Preservation Society and is run independently from any religious organisation, it is still a consecrated church. The society welcomes same sex marriages. Couples can use either a marriage celebrant or a religious minister to officiate at their wedding.

St Ninian’s

St Ninian’s is a Presbyterian Church community committed to exploring the Christian faith and practice from a liberal/progressive Christian perspective.

We enjoy the space and freedom to explore and discover what matters to us – spirituality, faith and community.
We are committed to interacting with our city community in ways that build compassion, hope and justice.
We are committed to creating a safe and hospitable place for people to gather.

When same-sex marriages were discussed at a Standing Committee meeting the response was that if the minister didn’t consult them about current weddings, why would he consult them about same-sex weddings? A wedding is a wedding.
