Trinity Methodist Church

Trinity Methodist Church is located by the beautiful Clive Square Gardens in central Napier, Hawke’s Bay.


We seek to demonstrate God’s unconditional love through friendship, outreach and service in the community. We are an inclusive faith community (irrespective of age, gender, sexual orientation or culture); where faith can be explored, our spirituality nurtured, and engagement in discipleship and social service within the Napier community.

Trinity Methodist was built in 1876, and is now the only city-centre church to pre-date the 1931 Napier earthquake. It is a fine example of colonial wooden church architecture. 

Trinity Methodist is available as a venue for same-sex weddings.
